Window guessing - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Window guessing
You all know what a Johari window is by now. Several weeks too late, I'm hitching a lift on the bandwagon; feel free to go and contribute to
my interactive online window data thingummy
. Or not.

When this was still the next big thing, more bleeding-edge bloggers than me came up with interesting variants on the meme. I like their versions better.

I swear I didn't look before clicking!

Blimey. I picked the same six that you did.

At the risk of looking stupid... Do you find out what my words were after you put your answers in, then? I didn't do anybody else's windows, so I don't really know how this works at all!

After. Honestly. I didn't take that long considering them - maybe a couple of minutes.

I didn't take that long considering my choices either. ;) I think these things probably work better if you go with first instincts rather than trying to game the system.

I've just checked. There's a bug in the machine, as geekette points out. So the six I put in came up as the ones that you had picked anyway - nobody has picked any of the same six as you, apparently, if you refresh.

As you were then, Ms Mystery.

I think there's a bug in it at the moment, or something - because it looks to me like I picked the same six you did, too, but I can see that imc and juggzy didn't pick the same ones as me or as each other.

Ah. Refreshing the window shows it properly.

[I'll stop replying to myself in a minute]

Oh no it doesn't. Now it's showing none in the "known to self" column!

Oh, bugger. Does this mean all results are completely invalid?
geekette8 From: geekette8 Date: March 8th, 2006 04:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't think so - it's still showing the ones other people have chosen for you, so you'd just have to do a bit of manual poking to see how that correlated with the ones you chose for yourself. The idea is that the "arena" window holds those traits that you are aware of in yourself and that others see, and the "facade" is ones you picked for yourself that nobody else did.

To me, right now, it appears to be working correctly. Things are where they should be on my screen. :)
