This ‘Connecting Up’ exercise provides an opportunity for you to start thinking about language and how you use it.
Think of one word that you would use to describe yourself. Write it down. Now think of the people in your life – family, friends, colleagues – and write down one word to describe each of them.
What do you notice from the words you have listed? Are they all similar, or vastly different?
Think about how another person might think of someone based on your description, or how they might perceive you based on your choice of word.
