Description of the tool

Everybody will get 3 blank papers. Write down 3 of your identities (one identity, one paper). It can be whatever (psychologist, Japanese, mother, person who likes going to the sea etc). When you finished give all papers to me.
Now, I’ll read one by one each identity. If you recognize yourself in it, please stand. You will stand following your feeling not “reality” – so if you are English by your reality, but you don’t feel it as an important part of your identity don’t stand up. On the other hand, if you are woman you also can stand when I say 'man' if you feel like it.
All the persons who remain sitting have a task to give strong applause. Clap very loudly on each one.
Comments afterwards if have.
