Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.

William James
American Philosopher (1842–1910)

 

Often so-called facts are presented to us, which we accept without further questioning. This excellent game teaches people to question further.

Knowing that there are in-built lies participants concentrate much more in 'Fact of My Life' compared to the mere self-presentation. Accordingly, there is more fun and a higher recollection of the facts.

 

Objective

Facts of my life - Which of the facts are true?
Facts of my life - Which of the facts are true?

Self-presentation and introduction of the group.

 

Resources

Flip chart sheets, marker, cards.

 

Time

5 mins writing, 3 mins per participant presentation time.

 

Task

Each participant writes five to seven ‘facts’ about their own life on a flip chart sheet. Some of them are true, some not — it’s up to the participant as there is no rule stating how many have to be true or untrue. After 5 mins of writing, all of the participants come to the front to present their ‘facts’ one after the other. The others judge what is true or untrue.

Visualising 'Facts of My Life' is more fun and a good exercise, but requires much more time.

Optional: If you have more time you can ask participants to visualize 'Facts of My Life' on a flipchart or a maternal board. This then might be a good visualization exercise and a practical exercise for the use of flipchart, cards, markers, colors etc.

 

Phase

A starter game.
