Abstract

This exercise asks participants to explore the multiple ways they define themselves. When we speak, especially in formal or professional settings, we have a tendency to only draw on one of the many answers we have to “Who am I?” – a forensic scientist.

In order to effectively connect with a different audience as well as with multiple audiences at once, we must consider tapping into the different “whos” we each are. Our audience is made up of people who also possess multiple identities. Often time we choose to censor certain of our own “whos” in certain contexts, and we should examine why this is.

The accessing of multiple identities may allow for additional empathy, analogies, or energy to emerge.

You can do this exercise in pairs, so it can be used for larger groups.

The estimated time taken for the exercise is 20-30 minutes including a debrief.
