Picoblog Question – 2019 – Post #3

What is the No-Labels-or-Names Challenge?

My two cents, but please share yours:

The purpose of the No-Labels-or-Names Challenge is to see if you can refrain from labelling or naming any individual for 24 hours–no adjectives, no personal names, no demographic identity labels, etc. I tried this challenge one day recently and barely passed, nearly failed four times.

The point of the challenge is to notice how applying labels and names to an individual doesn’t diminish them in any way, but it does diminish our understanding of that individual. It’s an interesting exercise. Give a try!
