Who Am I?
Here's a great little fun icebreaker you can use for teams that are quite well established. Works well with all kinds of teams including school groups and as a meetings ice breaker.
Divide the group up into teams of at least 5 players. One person is being questioned in each round and will answer a question from every other team member. The only trick is that they answer the questions as if they were another person in the team! Mmmm... tricky. The questioners should think carefully about the questions they ask and really try and get into the mind of the person they are trying to be.
At the end of each round - every person in the team gets to guess the identity of the person they are trying to be.
Possible questions could be:
- If you were an animal what would you be?
- if you were a bird what type of bird would you be?
- What would be your ideal vacation?
- Which famous person do you most respect?
- if tomorrow was your last day on earth how would you spend it?
- What clothes would you love to wear but never dare?
- What is your wildest dream?
- Who is a leader you most respect?
- What is the greates quality you posess?
- What annoys you most about other people?
- What do you do if you make a mistake? own up or cover up?
- Do you prefer to love or be loved?
So what do we learn from this? That people's preconceptions about another person can be totally wrong or right or mostly somewhere inbetween. It's good if everybody in the team has a chance to be the assumed person. Explore what it's like to be mis- represented or even deeper what is that that person does to make someone think that way?
