A question for any training cohort


See what you think of this - put it to use in training courses dealing with equality/diversity/communication/self awareness/assertiveness/cultural awareness etc etc, and some technical courses like employment lawmock tribunals etc. We have used it to good effect - and on ourselves.It can generate a minefield and is challenging for any group. The question very simply is:-

Why do we see what isn't there?

I would be really interested to learn the results of your application of the question in a training course.Or answer it now lol.....why do we see what isn't there?

  1. ah, but……

    ….how do YOU know it isn’t there?




    "I see dead people"………maybe you don’t….


    I see an opportunity, you see a threat


    My perception is my reality….but it may not be yours.


    Yes, it is a potentially fascinating philosophical question to use to kick off a discussion


  2. yes

    Precisely – you are quite right.It takes some participants off on a "floric of their own" but certainly drills down into specific issues/approaches/perceptions of the cohort and/or training subject in focus!

  3. Alice?? Who the…is Alice?

    Ask Alice …

    Nothing would be what it is,

    Because everything would be what it isn’t.

    And contrary-wise – what it is, it wouldn’t be.

    And what it wouldn’t be, it would.

    You see?

  4. It is often said

    -that Alice in Wland, the works of Shakespeare and perhaps the Bible(or similar for other faiths) really does equip you for life and human nature
