Crowdsourcing Forum Examples for Quizzes

WIIFT Frame Example Thread

Lucio: And it's such an important and foundational concept that it might indeed be added into the framing lesson as a "WIIFT" frame -plus adding a couple examples-.

Looking at this and thinking about the other thread on sharpening emotional intelligence, maybe we can have a crowdsourced approach to coming out quizzes.

I have not thought about how this can be done.
It probably does take up a bit of work because one has to summarise the essential elements of the thread.

Maybe we can have a shared Google Forms or Typeform to add examples to.

Here is a quick example that I have created on Google Forms:

Yeah, I think this could be very useful.

Also because there is a limit to how many quizzes can be added to a course without making that course too big.

But for people who want more, and/or for quicker quizzes, then an external repository of quizzes could be very helpful.

Talking about developing emotional intelligence from another thread -the strategically useful emotional intelligence just to be clear- those quizzes might be one of the best ways of doing so.

I think this suggestion got buried amidst the other posts.
Would you think a quiz sample (maybe the Google Forms) on common situations like handling excess baggage would make power dynamics more relatable?

For example,

Power dynamics is not just for what you typically think of climbing corporate ladders and politicians.
Have you ever been afraid of excess baggage at the airport?
With your new skills, you can sling bags over your shoulders and walk past the air stewardess with a single remark.

Let's say the air stewardess stops you and says you can only bring 1 bag onto the plane.
What would you say here?

  • Option A
  • Option B
  • Option C

The hurdle I don't see an easy way around are:

  1. Quality control: to have good quizzes, advanced members must either prepare them, or at least review and OK them (this is doable)
  2. Bottleneck effect: because of 1, the more quizzes you gather, the more the advanced members, who are usually a minority, become the bottleneck

I totally agree.
I think consolidating and getting the gist out is an inevitable part of filtering content.
It is tedious, and most people would not like to do it.

I think we can leave this hanging first and maybe go along if there's a possibility of getting momentum.

Anyone Wanna Give it a Try?

I throw it out there:

If anyone wants to give it a go at an introductory video on topics such as:

  • power dynamics
  • social strategies
  • dating strategies
  • office politics
  • frame control
  • ...

I think there are already several people on this forum that can add value with a video.

And very possibly do even better than I do.

So I'm happy to find a way to profit-share and make it win-win.
Starting for example with: all revenues from the video people make goes to them, for the whole lifetime of the video.

Edit:
The offer also extends to "camera facing" video.
Happy to have a new face on the channel from someone who's also come a long way working on his emotional/social/power intelligence.

Exploring what Lucio has mentioned on opportunities to work together.

I am interested in making a more practical version of Power University.
We could call it Power Apprenticeship.

Because I'm someone who is very interested in deliberate practice.
Or how to practise things.

This is why I always link different threads together.
Or group similar examples together.

Lucio: Also because there is a limit to how many quizzes can be added to a course without making that course too big.

This would circumvent the issue that you mention above.
Making the flagship product Power University too huge.

Lucio: Talking about developing emotional intelligence from another thread -the strategically useful emotional intelligence just to be clear- those quizzes might be one of the best ways of doing so.

We have discussed that the "feel" or intuition is one of the cornerstones towards mastery of power dynamics.
And I think we have become good at this intuition through repeated analysis on this forum.
Analysing our own situations and other people's situations.

But maybe this is a bit ad-hoc.
What if we could systemise it into a structured practice.

I think Kevin (Transitioned) has mentioned this before on several threads too.
Making more case studies or stories.

Crowdsourcing Feature

Maybe there could be a better medium to crowdsource knowledge.
The forum is unstructured which is great for people who like to write in detail and freely.
A constrained version like Google Forms with hashtags could help in organising the knowledge.

Or some way of transforming a form into a forum post.
This would allow it to be editable afterwards before posting.

How to Execute?

  • Start Super Simple with Google Forms
  • Integrate with this website
    Could to be all-in-one but would require more collaborative efforts
  • Get Another Domain and Link
    I or anyone else interested can start building a prototype

I like the idea, Matthew.

Which System

What do you think of the current capabilities of PU's quizzes?

If they're good, then the easy answer is to use the same system.

If you were thinking of something fancier and better options, then we can consider them.

Where

An advantage I see with a second domain is that it could make a shared ownership project easier.

We wouldn't be within TPM anymore and we'd start from scratch.

The disadtanvatages, well... Is that we start from scratch :).
That means ten times more effort at least.

When

This depends a lot on how seriously someone would like to take the lead on this.

How

The easiest option I'm thinking is:

Give someone -could also be more than one person- an "instructor" user role that allows to create quizzes, and start developing the quizzes.

Alternatively, first collect the quizzes somewhere else, then build all at once -either here, or in the new domain-.

Power Apprenticeship sounds cool.

I miss the idea of the "feel" and the foundational social intelligence / intuition in it.

But this is not the top priority now.

I will start testing this on a small scale.
We can abandon this if it's not feasible, not useful, poor response, etc.

If you were thinking of something fancier and better options, then we can consider them.

I'm thinking that I (or we) could start simple while exploring fancier options:

  • Google Forms or TypeForm
    Evaluate and refine
  • Use Power University format or develop on some other platform

I suggest this because there are a few big considerations to develop this:

  • Designing the content structure
  • Getting the right content
  • Technical considerations

I think it's easier to develop the content separately from the technical considerations.
Although there may be some additional work like putting the content over to the website quizzes, etc.

Power in the Streets

Applying Power to Everyday Life

At the moment, most people recommend others to get better through taking leadership positions and interacting with people in varied situations.

The challenge is several-fold:

  • You may not have access to these opportunities
  • You lack targeted feedback
  • You only learn from your own personal experiences which is good but carries some cost:
    • Experience is a dear teacher - Benjamin Franklin
      You don't want to lose an important promotion because an asshole took advantage of you
    • Your "feel" of social situation becomes biased through only exposing yourself to your own social situations
  • You lack targeted practice
    If you want to understand how to be more assertive, one should probably focus on how to apply these techniques on specific situations.
    Rather than going out and interacting randomly with people and friends

Exploring how to resonate learning the "feel" with the audience.

So you're suggesting to start with Google docs?

If so, sounds good to me.

Google Forms like the one in the first post in the thread

Yeah, I mistyped, that one, I'm cool with it.
