Skepsis in Poznan

Skepsis. Critical thinking VS xenophobia

Skepsis. Critical thinking VS xenophobia is a local project in Poznan led by volunteers. During this initiative, we will improve the critical thinking skills and media literacy of our participants through delivering a dozen activities and workshops for people of different ages and backgrounds. These activities will be organised in Poznan – in local schools, at the universities, as well as in public spaces. Our events are addressed to the residents of Poznan city – both from Poland as well as foreigners. Experts together with local and international volunteers will conduct workshops in 3 languages – Polish, English and Russian to involve non-Polish speakers as well. Within this project, we want to create an exhibition in Poznan on the topic of critical thinking from materials created by participants.

We are supported by the European Solidarity Corps.

Our project team consists of several enthusiastic volunteers: Krzysiek Woltynski, Agnieszka Zielinska, Ania Wisniewska, Bohdan Pozniak, Dariana Hlava, Joanna Szwaba, Kasia Balcer, Marta Jagodzinska, Marko Boyko, Kateryna Kazakova, Anna Shlyakhova.

What do we want to achieve?

In this local project, we aim to address fake news, disinformation, and subjective information. These problems are intensifying the issue of xenophobia and discrimination, which may negatively influence our local, international communities in Poznan. During our “learning by doing” workshops and activities, we will show how misinformation can affect our perception of foreigners. We will also teach how to recognise false and subjective information. Our local team is international; thus, our participants will be able to meet and communicate with people from different countries.

Czym jest nasz lokalny projekt Skepsis w Poznaniu?

Skepsis. Critical thinking VS xenophobia to lokalny projekt w Poznaniu prowadzony przez wolontariuszy. Podczas tej inicjatywy, mamy na celu poprawę zdolności krytycznego myślenia i interpretacji mediów wśród naszych uczestników poprzez przeprowadzenie kilkunastu zajęć i warsztatów dla osób z różnych grup wiekowych i wywodzących się z różnych środowisk. Te zajęcia będą organizowane w Poznaniu – w lokalnych szkołach, na uniwersytetach, a także w przestrzeni publicznej takiej jak w lokalnych parkach czy w Inkubatorze Kultury „Pireus.” Nasze wydarzenia są adresowane do mieszkańców Poznania – zarówno z Polski, jak i obcokrajowców. Specjalnie do tego przygotowani eksperci wraz z lokalnymi i międzynarodowymi wolontariuszami będą przeprowadzać warsztaty w 3 językach – Polskim, Angielskim i Rosyjskim po to, by zaangażować jak największą grupę odbiorców. W ramach tego projektu chcemy stworzyć wystawę na temat krytycznego myślenia z materiałów stworzonych przez uczestników.

Jesteśmy wspierani przez European Solidarity Corps.

Zespół naszego projektu składa się z kilku entuzjastycznych wolontariuszy: Krzysiek Woltynski, Agnieszka Zielinska, Ania Wisniewska, Bohdan Pozniak, Dariana Hlava, Joanna Szwaba, Kasia Balcer, Marta Jagodzinska, Marko Boyko, Kateryna Kazakova, Anna Shlyakhova.

Co chcemy osiągnąć?

W tym lokalnym projekcie mamy na celu zajęcie się problemem fake newsów, dezinformacji i subiektywnych treści. Te problemy zwiększają ksenofobię i dyskryminację, co może negatywnie wpłynąć na naszą lokalną, międzynarodową społeczność w Poznaniu. Podczas naszych warsztatów w formie „learning by doing” pokażemy, jak dezinformacje mogą wpłynąć na nasze postrzeganie obcokrajowców. Nauczymy naszych uczestników, jak rozpoznać nieprawdziwe i subiektywne informacje. Nasz lokalny zespół jest międzynarodowy, przez co uczestnicy będą mogli poznać i komunikować się z ludźmi z innych krajów.

🤔“What if everyone finds out who I really am”: why do we sometimes feel like impostors and what to do about it?

You have a lot of diplomas, certificates, respect from colleagues and praise from others - but you still do not believe in your merits? You do not leave the feeling that you are about to be exposed, because your success is only a coincidence, and not the merit of talent or qualifications. This psychological phenomenon is called Impostor Syndrome - the inability of a person to attribute their achievements to their own efforts. This is not a medical diagnosis, but it can make life worse.

🧑🏽‍🔬 Scientists are still arguing about the causes of the impostor syndrome. Among the possible factors are the family atmosphere in childhood. For example, having a smart brother or sister with whom you were constantly compared. Or, on the contrary, excessive praise in your direction and the assurance that you can easily achieve everything. However, having matured, it becomes clear: a lot is given with difficulty, which means that you are not as good as everyone thought.

💡Impostor Syndrome is also associated with the Dunning-Kruger effect. People with low qualifications sometimes overestimate their abilities, while professionals doubt themselves, feel insecure, and consider others to be more competent.

According to a study in the United States, up to 82% of people experienced impostor syndrome❗️

💫 Natalie Portman, Kate Winslet and Emma Watson admitted it, and Neil Gaiman had nightmares of revelation after the release of several bestsellers.

How Imposter Syndrome can hurt
Its hard for a person to take on a new business. Doubts and fears lead to either unhealthy perfectionism or procrastination. This is similar to self-destruction, which affects the quality of life, interferes with development and rational decision-making.

❗️ If you often feel like an impostor, you can get rid of it in two ways: on your own with the help of feedback, or by talking to a psychologist. Acknowledging a feeling helps to realize it and overcome it. Ask your relatives and friends to give realistic feedback, this will gradually form in you an adequate understanding of yourself.

Amazing critical thinking game alert🚨

Participants of our Skepsis training course in France created a nice learning game🎮
It is devoted to raise critical thinking and explain the different kinds of mistakes we have in our brains🧠 

The game has 6 small games: baises, fallacies, prejudices, and many more. The idea is to pass every round and find a word. 
When you finish all the levels, in the end, you will have a full sentence.

Here is a link to the game: https://bit.ly/3o6nTGV

Leave us a comment under this post on how was the game. Participants put lots of effort to create the game💪🏽
