Week#6 Activity: Counterfactual Identity

Image

For this week’s activity we had a “fake identity” or pretended to be something we were not.  I dressed in my old work uniform from when I worked at an animal hospital and talked to people on campus to see if they would react differently.  I don’t usually wear work clothes or any professional attire at school so it was interesting to see how people perceived me.  The difference I saw was that it seemed like people took me more seriously and spoke to me more formally.  I went a bit out of my comfort zone and walked up to people to start conversation and everyone I talked to was friendly.  I chatted to about 5 people for maybe a total of 20 minutes or so.  It was a a unique experience and definitely a good exercise for me to be more outgoing.
