Post Archetype symbols
I have just completed DVD 2 and have a question on the archetype symbols. Do i need to stick to the triangle, circle, right angle or line wavy or otherwise ? I find myself controlling what i can sketch. Can i doodle anything and let my hand lead in stage 3 (free hand sketch)

Triangle is not an archetype. An angle is.

You are not doodling in S3[Site]

You shouldn't be concerned about whether what your hand is sketching is an archetype or not.

After the session is over you can look at a line in the sketch and say "oh hey! Look at that! That looks like an archetype for a [whatever]!" And the absence of archetypical forms in your Freehand Sketches may be a clue to your instructor or project manager that you are dawdling in the S3 and letting your imagination interfere with the work. But during the session, before the session, even after the session, it is counterproductive for you to waste any concern on the subject.

Each line in the Freehand Sketch represents a key aspect of the target or site. Because of the limited time (15 secs) allowed to produce the Freehand Sketch the representation of each key site aspect is very basic and tends to be archetypical. But as soon as you start thinking in terms of producing archetypes instead of just letting your hand draw the sketch, you're doomed, because you will, as you put it, find yourself controlling what you can sketch.

Chartless,

Is subvocalizing permitted in the first S3?

You better not be subvocalizing on a freehand sketch. You should not be getting word ideas here, that would be AOL.

Thanks. Just checking. I know in the analytical sketches you can...just wanted to make sure on the freehand sketch.

Appreciate your help.

Jessie

As K says, you'd better not. And really, if your right brain is fully engaged in the sketching, you won't have access to any words to subvocalize anyway. If you dive into Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain to augment your RV training, you'll understand exactly what I mean.

Chartless,

I've been working on the book exercises and I do indeed know that feeling when I'm over on the right side of the brain.

Maybe if I do all my freehand sketches upside down I'll do better! Just KIDDING...pun intended!

I do subvocalize on the "analytical" sketches. RVRobot said that somewhere...I still hope that's okay!

Thanks for the pointers!

-Jessie :)
