There are various self-development methods in the market such as books, therapists, guides and coachers but Point of You games are like no tool you have ever come across before.
What is it about these games and this unique method that people can’t get enough of?
What makes the magic happen?
How does it work?
We believe that everything: people, objects, situations, music, tastes… every little thing in life has countless points of view. The learning process we go through with the games is to open up and see additional, new points of view. Ones that differ from the ones we already have.
We believe that change almost always starts when we are open and ready to take a chance and look at things from new perspectives, new points of view. Being aware is the first step toward broadening our perspective and thus enabling a personal, professional and even organizational development.
A cornerstone of the Points of You® method is the interaction between the right brain, the intuitive and emotional half of the brain, and the left brain, focused on logic and analysis. This occurs when we look at a photograph and a word at the same time.
The photograph stimulates our right, creative, brain while the word activates the left, analytical, brain.
The simultaneous stimulation of the two brain hemispheres creates a struggle between the emotional and the rational, momentarily “shorting out” the vigilant defense mechanisms of our mind. This “deliberate confusion” gives the mind a short respite from our preconceived ideas on how things “should” or “ought” to be, and allows our mind to open up to new places inside ourselves, shifting our point of view.
The purpose in our games, is to introduce a theme through visual stimulus that has no direct or obvious connection to it, thus, stimulating our entire rational and emotional system.
Doing that, we purposefully leave a space wide enough for personal interpretation, a personal interspace.
This unique inner motion creates a new response, resulting in emotions and insights that are new to our mind and heart.
After expanding our points of view, it’s time to focus. The focusing process involves being precise and selecting the most significant insight for our specific issue.
In the last stage we take our insights into the practical world – deciding what action to take in order to achieve our goal.
All our tools are based on the below 4 stages of our method. These are incorporated in a fun, non-judgmental, thought provoking, enjoyable process which is essential and non-separable from the games – leading to the amazing, ultimate method.
