    This is an interesting activity.. conversations about your perception, judgement and intuition and strategies put in place to achieve a goal can all be reflected upon.

    There are potentially conversations around peer pressure that could be explored here. Whether one felt compelled to cross the line the more people do so or whether they stuck to their strategies/ beliefs for the entirety of the exercises.

    Linking it back to other situations where we might feel like we have to follow a group direction, use similar strategies when our instincts may be saying otherwise may be beneficial conversations to have assuming the group is suited and ready to explore these ideas.

      Your suggestions re connecting the outcomes of this activity to peer pressure, etc, are well placed. This is exactly how I frame this group initiative.
