Perceptual Positions

This activity is perfect for thinking out of the box, for connecting with someone you will probably never meet, for exploring issues between you and someone else. As well as a very effective way for resolving issues between you and someone else.

It requires you to think outside of the box, and expand your thinking.

This is a thinking and doing activity that requires you to have three spaces set out in front of you.

The Positions Are:

One = Yourself
Two = The other person
Three = The observer

The Process:

1. In position 1 – from you own perspective – see the situation through your own eyes, be fully associated. Notice you own self-talk, what you see, hear, feel, think and value from you own perspective about the events.

2. In position 2 – from the other person’s perspective – see the situation through their eyes, be fully associated into their body. Imagine what you would see, hear, feel, think and value from their perspective about the events.

3. In position 3 – from the observer perspective – see the situation through their eyes; be fully associated into their body. Imagine what you would see, hear, feel, think and value from their perspective about the events. What objectivity or wisdom would you give.

4. Step back into position 1 – from your own perspective – see the situation through your own eyes, be fully associated. Notice your new understandings about the issue or situation, what you have learned about yourself. What new choices do you have now?

Have a play with this activity, and if you need any help figuring it out, let me know.
