It is one of the task in the group testing technique .In this task group seated in full circle and required to discuss the topic allotted by G.T.O. The discussion is of informal nature where in the members are free to express their opinion on the topic of discussion .Any speaker can speak any direction in any number of times the member desires. There is no conclusion required to arrive by the group. We may preferably speak in English,Hindi or mix of both. It is conducted in two parts as given below. 1.the GTO offers two subjects the group and give half a minute to decide the topic. He repeats the selected topic once again to allow 20 minutes of discussion time and abruptly stop the discussion. 2.GTO offers only one subject and allows 20 minutes of discussion time and end of which he terminate the task.
TIPS 1.Take initiative even in the selection of topic in case you want the topic of your choice. 2.Initiate discussion if possible in both the parts. ie, you should be first to speak if not possible at least be second or third to speak. 3.Be active participants through out the discussion. ie, speak as many number as possible. 4.Convey depth in what you speak. Do not come out only with shallow level views. 5.Each time you enter the discussion do not repeat what you already said and what others are already added. Therefore come out with fresh views and new arguments. 6.Give as many examples as possible, quotation, proverbs and factual data related to the topic because such details are more convincing to others. 7.Be brief and to the points. ie, don’t drag your views because others would get irritated and cut it short that will interrupt you. 8.In case some one is dragging you may interrupt otherwise don’t interrupt some one is just giving the point. 9.At no stage you should display quarrelsome or aggressive attitude or show annoyance through words or via, expressions 10.Don’t be conscious of the presence of the GTO. 11.Give weaker numbers a chance to speak by encouraging them. 12.Once in a way do appreciate the good points of others 13.even when opposes other views be polite. 14.Do not intent to talking only to those sitting on your adjacent sides. 15.Talk loudly and clearly otherwise your views will go unheard in the group.
