I am starting an experiment today at work. My idea is that if people had more of a connection then communication is going to be easier. For now I am starting with a series of objects on my desk positioned in a pretty visible location that are a short hand for my personal interests. I am going to leave them set out for now and see if they generate acknowledgement from my co workers. If I do not get interest I will add further items are more reflective of my interests until my cube is full of gaming and metal and I become that guy.
So far I am starting small, my short hand objects are the following:
- Tempest Pint Glass: to reflect my love of old video games.
- 20 Sided dice: for my table top roleplaying game fanaticism
- Name Tag written in Maiden font: For my love of Metal!!!
I am going to keep this updated and I invite you to try it out too. Please comment your experiences as I think this could be of use to people who are severely introverted such as myself.
