The Johari window is a technique that helps people better understand their relationship with themselves and others.

Luft and Ingham named their model “Johari” using a combination of their first names.

A Conversation is an online experiment orchestrated to explore vulnerability among strangers in the digital realm. You will be assigned a pseudonym and paired up with a stranger in one of three chatrooms. Everything said in each chatroom is visible to each of the other chatrooms. As you converse with your partner, we urge you to ask yourself: what compels you to keep a conversation going? How honest do you want to be? And how would you like to portray yourself given that you are anonymous?
Each session at most can host 6 players; all others become observers.
