One person leaves the room. Everyone in the circle decides on a certain rule to follow when answering the psychiatrist’s questions.
Examples might be:
- tell the truth when legs uncrossed, tell a lie when legs are crossed
- answer all questions with five word phrases
- begin all sentences with a vowel.
When a rule is decided upon, the psychiatrist comes back into the room and starts asking questions to people in the circle. They continue asking questions until they recognize the pattern. They have three guesses to try and figure out the rule.
When the psychiatrist guesses correctly or guesses three times incorrectly, the round is over, and someone else gets to be the psychiatrist.
