VII. Goffman’s Dramaturgy Metaphor(Michael’s Sound Bite 2-5):

View the process of presenting yourself as theater: (a) teams of actors cooperate on putting together a show on stage; (b) there are three stages: front, back, and outside: on front stage you perform for the audience; on the back stage you rehearse the show; outside you are disengaged from your performance; (c) each team establishes borders for admission to the show with certain rites of passage; (d) each person plays a role (informer, shill, spotter, mediator, non-person, service specialist); (e) backstage you go out of character (refer to those absent derogatorily, discuss technical aspects; argue about team roles; determine actions); (e) teams work to create impressions (maintain loyalty, discipline, exercise circumspection – prepare for problems).


Carefully plan and think through all these aspects of your performance.


VIII. Online Test of Your Johari Window(Michael’s Sound Bite 2-6):

  1. The online version of the Johari window makes you work with other people from a finite list of descriptions. Ask them to select five of fifty five characteristics at http://kevan.org/johari and then you will see how they see you and which aspects remain hidden or unknown.

  2. My student Tatyana Natarovahypothesized that selection of the criteria is based on several factors: (a) where you and that person are on the Buber continuum; (b) what contexts you communicate in; (c) what impression they have of you; (d) the number of situations in which your partner could judge your character; (e) what information they have about you from others; (f) how well you meet the other person’s needs; (g) how well I can handle tensions with this person.

  3. These are the aspects you need to consider when presenting yourself to other people.
