What is your opinion on lying

Tell me your opinion!

The working template for the exchange of views is laid out on the table, the deck of cards with the impulse questions is placed in the middle.

The person whose first letter in their first name appears first in the alphabet begins and reads out the first impulse question.

Silently think about whether you would answer "yes" or "no". Count audibly to three for everyone, then all point to their answer at the same time. Now compare your answer with those of the others. Question them and swap ideas Everyone at the table explains why he or she decided “yes” or “no.” If you disagree, discuss it.

Then it goes clockwise and the second impulse question is revealed.

Now take some time to think about it and ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you disagree If yes why?
  • What examples can you think of for or against?
  • What would have to happen for your mind to change?
  • Can you understand the answer from your table neighbors?

Mind reading - this is how it works:

One variation is the exercise Read minds.

Have at least two people at a table. You and every other person at the table need two pieces of paper of exactly the same size (e.g. notes). The word “yes” is on one piece of paper and the word “no” is on the other. Everyone now has a yes and a no card face down in front of them. Pull out the impulse questions and place them in the middle of the table.

First, the person whose first letter appears in the first name in the alphabet starts and reads out the first impulse question. The person thinks about an answer, but does not say it out loud, but places the yes or no card face down in front of him.

Now everyone else at the table ponders together in lively discussion what the person might have answered and why. Everyone puts the answer he / she suspects face down on the table in front of them. You and the others don't have to agree, but you should be able to justify their assumption.

The person who reads at will reveal their secret and present their answer. Then you can compare, ask and discuss the answers with the others at the table.

Then it goes clockwise and the second impulse question is revealed.
