Some thoughts on a method I'm starting to apply - comments welcome!

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, September 11, 2015 10:15 AM

Simon, I'm always a fan of your stuff, but I'm especially loving your insights and endorsement of the persona approach. The psychology of persona development is a subject near and dear to my heart.  It plays a big role in what we teach in the certificate program on Brand Psychology and Audience Engagement I designed with Dr. Jerri Lynn Hogg at Fielding Graduate University.  We work with story and 'the storied nature of life' as the core expression of a brand's values; similarly we use the psychology of motivations, needs and goals to understand the audience and as the basis for developing the persona story to get the right "fit" between the brand/cause/entertainment property and the audience. (We use 'brand' broadly to mean any encapsulated idea, from social cause or entertainment experience to commercial or organizational brand.) If you are telling your core story, it is also your brand promise. We all, as consumers, have stories about how any consumed experience integrates, inspires, or changes our personal story trajectory.  Lots of science on how the brain processes using story (i.e. narrative structure) to make meaning.  By creating a brand-audience link through psych fundamentals built on story, by definition it builds the trust and authenticity--creating a relationship of respect and reciprocity. As you well know from what you do, the development of a clear story arc with emotional purpose and intention allows you to construct and tell your story across media to create a larger experience or storyworld, whether a developed canon or an internal psychological experience. At the end of the day, identifying the psychological drivers on both sides (story and audience) makes the story resonate deeply with the audience which is experienced as respect.

How to Give and Receive Feedback About Creative Work

How to Give and Receive Feedback About Creative Work | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
Feedback is crucial for learning and improving, but it’s rarely fun to be on the receiving end of it when it’s critical. Many people have a negative reaction to feedback, especially feedback on their creative work. In a study of seven companies and 11,471 days of creative work, researchers found two striking patterns: First, getting feedback was incredibly rare, indicating that people seemed to avoid it; and second, when people did receive feedback, it generally left a negative emotional residue.

So what might good feedback for creative work look like? By “good feedback,” I mean feedback that creative workers actually want and that leads to changes that improve their creative output.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 10, 2018 12:13 PM

"At the very basic level, we see that businesses don’t have a concrete business story to tell," says Shlomi Ron in this article on Visual Storytelling. And that's the crux of the matter.

 

Ron goes on to share a lot about how to construct visual stories and the mistakes business make in their visual storytelling. And there's great news about the primacy of print and the marrying of visual with print media.

 

That being said, it's scary how good we are getting at knowing how to sway people. As always, there are upsides and downsides, and it behooves us all to be more aware of what we do, and what is being done to us.

Students 3D Print Diorama of Ancient Chinese History | All3DP | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it
There have been a few exhibitions featuring 3D printed artwork over the years. But none are quite like this miniature display created by a team of Chinese artists to showcase the country’s traditional culture.

Professor Nan Yu at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts has been leading a team of sculpture students to utilize 3D scanning and printing technologies for their latest creation. Together, the team created a display of the appointment of Tso Tsung-Tang, one of four important ministers of the late Qing Dynasty.

The finished creation pays tribute to Chinese tradition of ancient academy culture and the respect paid toward teachers.

George Orwell’s Six Rules For Great Writing - Personal Growth

George Orwell’s Six Rules For Great Writing - Personal Growth | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it

"Politics and the English Language’ was published just a couple of months before the publication of ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’. This essay provides great insight into Orwell’s fears surrounding the declining state of language in the English speaking world, fears he expressed so boldly in ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’.

 

"I first came across George Orwell’s essay ‘Politics and the English Language’ many years ago and I have tried to use it as a guide for my writing, referring back to it every so often when I fear I am losing my way.

 

"The essay opens with, “Most people who bother with the matter at all would admit that the English language is in a bad way, but it is generally assumed that we cannot by conscious action do anything about it.” Orwell, in his usual calm and measured way, shares his thoughts on how the modern writer could help to improve the general state of language. He lists six rules for writing that he believes will aid the fight against restrictive language:"

Creative thought has a pattern of its own, brain activity scans reveal | Science | The Guardian

Creative thought has a pattern of its own, brain activity scans reveal | Science | The Guardian | Digital Storytelling | Scoop.it

People who are flexible, original thinkers show signature forms of connectivity in their brains, study shows

The brain activity that underpins original thought has been hard to pin down until now. 


Every artist has their own way of generating original ideas, but what is happening inside the brain might not be so individual. In new research, scientists report signature patterns of neural activity that mark out those who are most creative.

“We have identified a pattern of brain connectivity that varies across people, but is associated with the ability to come up with creative ideas,” said Roger Beaty, a psychologist at Harvard University. “It’s not like we can predict with perfect accuracy who’s going to be the next Einstein, but we can get a pretty good sense of how flexible a given person’s thinking is.”

"Creative thinking is one of the primary drivers of cultural and technological change, but the brain activity that underpins original thought has been hard to pin down. In an effort to shed light on the creative process, Beaty teamed up with colleagues in Austria and China to scan people’s brains as they came up with original ideas."
