Format of the Camp
You will learn to identify what you see into three categories, each with a different purpose/outcome:
- An individual. Purpose: to learn what likely are the person’s values, attitudes, beliefs, and styles.
- Two people interacting. Purpose: to learn who is likely to dominate. This is the origin of the Cats and Dogs metaphor.
- A group interacting. Purpose: to learn what is likely to happen and influence the desired outcome.
Perception Camp is Michael Grinder’s most advanced program. The more you prepare for it, the more advanced your learning will be. Graduates of Michael Grinder Group Wizardry programs are automatically approved to attend. Others are welcome, but to ensure they are ready to operate on this advanced level need to study the quizzes.
The following prerequisites are designed to be studied and taken in sequential order:
- House of Communication Study Guide & Quiz
- Pentimento and How Not to Get Shot Study Guide & Quiz
- Charisma Study Guide & Quiz
First review the study guide, then take the quiz at the end and compare your answers to see how you did. While this does not need to be submitted, we do require a good familiarity with these concepts before you attend to maximize your learning.
You are encouraged to bring 2-3 clips of 3 minutes each of people and situations you would like to have a better perception of: individuals, pairs, and a group setting. There can be several people on the footage and you can choose to focus on just one or two people in the scene(s). The footage can be from movies, TV, YouTube, etc. Make sure the footage is accessible and can be connected easily so we can watch the footage on a screen.
