Personality mapping

This is one of my favourite games – it’s called a Johari window.

Start by picking 6 words that describe you; then you ask your friends to pick words that describe you. You end up with a model of how you see yourself vs how the world sees you.

This won’t fix layout and design issues, but I find it good exercise for thinking about the ‘us vs them’ gap – appreciating how you can pre-empt user perception with design, functionality and copywriting.
