Just For Fun

Posted in Topic Ideas by shanaecf on July 21, 2010

One of my favorite and most challenging papers to write was not a research or persuasive paper; it was an essay on someone completely different from myself. This is an extremely challenging and rewarding topic. In order to successfully find someone that is completely different from yourself, you must truly know yourself.  I also found this essay to be incredibly rewarding and even fun to write. Here are some steps to take in order to find your opposite to write about.

  1. Make a list of your characteristics
  2. By each of those characteristics, write the name of someone who does not share those characteristics
  3. Make a list of hobbies and things you like to do
  4. Just like you did with the characteristics, write a name of a person who does not show the same interests.
  5. Make a list of people who’s name showed up the most.
  6. Pick a person and get to work!
