Eysenck’s Personality Inventory (EPI) (Extroversion/Introversion)

The Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI) measures two pervasive, independent dimensions of personality, Extraversion-Introversion and Neuroticism-Stability, which account for most of the variance in the personality domain. Each form contains 57 “Yes-No” items with no repetition of items. The inclusion of a falsification scale provides for the detection of response distortion. The traits measured are Extraversion-Introversion and Neuroticism.

Sitting in Leipoldt’s Deli working on my coaching framework

I’m sitting in Leipoldt’s Deli in Pretoria (http://www.leipoldtsdeli.co.za). Jennifer’s off at Unisa for a tutorial for one of the courses in her second honours degree. I’ve been doing some admin work on my coaching framework. Playing around with Trello, to see if it’s a good tool to use with my clients. Seems solid. I can share boards with specific people. And boards can have attachments.And… the best bit for me… I can copy boards, along with all the attachments. This means I can set up…Continue Reading “Sitting in Leipoldt’s Deli working on my coaching framework”

“Reality Check” — a Creative Mornings talk by @GarethPon — my sketchnotes.

This month, Instagram god, Gareth Pon, talked about the creative tension between knowledge and reality. I was in the front row, with my trusty Cintiq Companion 2, and my lapdesk, capturing bits and pieces visually. Including the push up competition. Oh yeah… I do this stuff for a living. Making pictures of things people talk about. Hire me for your next event. Do it. Hire me… contact me on Whatsapp on +27741046386, or email royblumenthal@gmail.com.

A tool for you to use to gamify your innovation process through the roof!

This is my gamification tool for use in offices, schools, and anywhere that innovation needs to take place. Using the four roles Roger von Oech has identified in his remarkable deck of cards — The Creative Whack Pack (http://amzn.to/22pvi25) — we find a pretty comprehensive system for being innovative. I’ve expanded von Oech’s tool by turning the four roles into “thinking hats”. And now I’ve added a Guild System to the mix. This is how it works. Right click on this character sheet, and save it…Continue Reading “A tool for you to use to gamify your innovation process through the roof!”

Four ways of understanding the world better — Roger von Oech’s CREATIVE WHACK PACK roles

I’ve designed an interactive, fun, insightful workshop. Next Tuesday I’ll be running it for a company in the pensions industry. The workshop is my take on Osterwalder’s VALUE PROPOSITION DESIGN. (http://amzn.to/1Ro15Zw.) One of the tools we’ll be using throughout the three-hour event is to understand things through one of four different lenses… The Explorer, The Artist, The Judge, and The Warrior. These are categories that Roger von Oech created for his wonderful tool, THE CREATIVE WHACK PACK. (http://amzn.to/1Ro1b33.) I’m borrowing the lenses to use as…Continue Reading “Four ways of understanding the world better — Roger von Oech’s CREATIVE WHACK PACK roles”

My version of the “Kagan Manage Mat” for Jennifer’s classroom

Jennifer has recently added Kagan methodology to her classroom. And it’s working really well for her and her collection of 10-year-olds. Recently, Jennifer and two of her colleagues put together a presentation to the staff of the Intersen phase of her school, to show them how they can start using Kagan in their own classrooms. I made various illustrations for the presentation, including this one… my version of the “Kagan Manage Mat”. It’s a tool that makes it really easy to work in teams of…Continue Reading “My version of the “Kagan Manage Mat” for Jennifer’s classroom”

My sketchnote of a profile of Kevin Clarence of Birchwood Hotel

In the Sunday Times of 1 May 2016, Margaret Harris wrote a profile on Kevin Clarence. As director at Birchwood Hotel & OR Tambo Conference Centre, he’s a conference maven. I figured the article was evocative, and would be cool to interpret as a sketchnote. Here’s the article… I picked the information Kevin spoke about that I thought was most pertinent. In my work as a visual facilitator, I have to listen very accurately to what’s being said in any particular room. I can’t draw EVERYTHING…Continue Reading “My sketchnote of a profile of Kevin Clarence of Birchwood Hotel”

The technological powerhouse behind my digital artmaking

People are curious about how I make art digitally. This is my setup. When I work at conferences and workshops, I generally have my machine on my easel. What I’ve left off this picture is my little magic gadget that I plug into the venue’s video projector… a Miracast Dongle. It turns the projector into a wireless receiver, which allows me to replicate my desktop onto a massive screen… with absolutely no wires! I love my technology. And so do my clients. Makes it reallllllly…Continue Reading “The technological powerhouse behind my digital artmaking”
