Drawing from the Other Personality

This is an example of two personalities in one body. The person who draws does not see what was happening and is controlled by the other person or “personality.” Directions Find a friend or familiar member to participate in this assignment. The only requirement is that they must be able to follow and give directions. Each person will need a sheet of paper and a pen or pencil. You are encouraged to record this for reflection, but recording is not required. Choose one person to describe (A) and one person to draw (B). Person A should come up with a slightly complex common object, such as a tree, car, stove, or something similar to describe to Person B without naming it. Person B should close their eyes or wear a blindfold and draw while listening to Person B’s directions. Person B should use descriptors only, such as, “Draw four circles inside a square. Move your pen three inches to the right and draw a three-inch squiggly line.” They should not say, “Draw a car.” Person A should be able to see what Person B is doing. When the drawing is finished, switch roles and have Person B give instructions while Person A draws. Both participants should answer the following questions: 1-What did you find challenging when giving instructions or following directions? To what extent do you think your drawing matches the other person’s directions? 2-What was your expectation compared to the result? 3-What emotions did you experience (laughter, frustration, annoyance, and so on)? Submit In a Microsoft Word document, briefly summarize both participants’ answers to the questions. Include scans or photos of the two drawings. APA format is not required.
