WHICH ARE YOU AND WHY? THUMBALL PROMPTS
On this Thumball, you'll find two words on each panel. They represent opposites. The goal is to understand if you're "this" or "that" or if you're preference lies somewhere in the middle.
Use the ball to learn more about friends and colleagues. Topics are broad enough that players can apply them to:
- Communication styles
When you're playing feel free to frame any prompt to your specific location, situation or objective.
** TIPS & Facilitation Suggestions **
EXPLAIN: The Which Are You Thumball requires players to chose between two opposite characteristics or preferences. They may find it's easy to choose one extreme or the other. If it is, or if it's not, encourage them to explain where they fall on the continuum and why. Invite them to share examples or expand on their answer with analogies to their personality or work style.
If you want to kick it up a notch, try these creative twists:
- Specify that answers should relate specifically to personal or workplace experiences.
- Ask first recipient to select an answer panel to which all players must respond or contribute.
- Survey players on several question panels, then create charts or graphs that reflect the cumulative responses.
