It is easy to get stuck within certain identity categories:

 

‘I’m a farmer’

‘I’m a policy-maker’

 

…and therefore I must act in a certain way.

 

At the same time, it is easy to put other people into boxes:

 

 ‘They are a farmer so they will not agree with what I think’

 ‘They are a policy-maker so they will not offer the support that we need’

 

To work through this, we suggest doing an activity to reflect on your own identity, and how this is never as clear-cut as it might seem.
