Training course contents:

A one page set of instructions for the icebreaker, ‘Same-Same, but Different’ can be downloaded for free from the link at the bottom of this page, or you can follow the notes below.

Goal – to highlight the fact that we all have similarities as well as differences. Useful icebreaker for diversity, equality or bullying training.

Instructions – this icebreaker activity is essentially a grouping exercise, but with a twist. Basically, you start the session by asking people to get into groups depending on different aspects of their life i.e. age, ethnicity, religion, upbringing (private/state school etc.), heritage, height etc. etc.

As the participants move from group to group, they soon realise that we have as much in common with each other as we have differences. The trainer then discusses this with the group and uses the point to lead into the training.

Uses – this icebreaker is great as an introduction to diversity, equality or bullying training where you might need to demonstrate that although we all have interesting differences, there is much that is also the same about us.

Designer note – the title of this icebreaker comes from a rather endearing term that I noticed being used during my travels around Thailand. Many of the Thai market stall owners and were keen to tell me that their Rolex watches were just like the genuine article, “Same, same, but different.”

Objectives:

This icebreaker is great as an introduction to diversity, equality or bullying training where you might need to demonstrate that although we all have interesting differences, there is much that is also the same about us.
