  1. 1. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Take the UNIAID MASH Test and discover the real you Welcome to the UNIAID Mash Test. This is an imaginative card game, with related workshop activities, designed by UNIAID and the Learning Partnership with Aimhigher funding, for years 11-13 and Higher Education students. It is guaranteed to break the ice with any group and get everyone talking. Players will gain great insight into themselves, their personal preferences and their attitude to money. The MASH Test is just one part of UNIAID Interactive, a suite of 30 workshops organised over 9 topics. Students will be able to identify other personality types.

  2. 2. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Learning objectives Learners will understand that there are different ways of handling their finances, study time, social life and health, and learn how to make intelligent choices when dealing with these areas of life in the future. It is designed to help increase awareness of personal qualities, skills, achievement and potential, so that learners can set informed personal goals. The UNIAID MASH test aims to help increase a sense of identity so that learners can present themselves confidently in a range of situations and helps them manage feedback, interaction, praise and criticism so that they might learn from the experience. To help you use the cards you’ll find a short introductory video, in addition to these notes, You’ll find this on on this disc and on the website– www.uniaidinteractive.org.uk This will show you how to set up and facilitate a successful session. 2 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  3. 3. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T What will you need? MASH card set(s) One set of MASH Cards works for between 10-13 players. The maximum number of players in this game depends on how many sets of cards you have. 1 set – up to 13 players 2 sets – 14 - 26 players Worksheet 01 – Personality Types (one per person) Worksheet 02 – Discovering More About You (one per person) Worksheet 03 – Good Hair, Bad Hair (one per person) Worksheet 04 – Knowing Me, Knowing You (one per person) Sound system and music (optional) Setting-up Open your pack of 160 cards. Lay the cards out in four separate piles: blue, red, yellow and green. Make up a set of cards for each player by taking 3 cards of each colour (3 blue, 3 red, 3 yellow & 3 blue). Each person should receive a set of 12 cards. Shuffle each set of 12 cards. Ensure you have enough handouts (copies may be printed from the disc or website). Clear the room of furniture and arrange the seats around the outside. Organise a flipchart in each of the four corners. You are now ready to play the MASH Test 3 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  4. 4. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Playing the game Set the scene Introduce the MASH Test. Explain that this is a card game designed to help learners understand more about themselves and their attitudes to four different areas of their life: money, academic, social and health (hence ‘MASH’). There are no right or wrong answers. Hand out a set of cards to each player. Explain that each card has a statement on it. You might invite a volunteer to read out statements on a few of their cards. Explain that these statements, which were compiled by students, may or may not describe their personality. Over the next five minutes, each player should read through each of their cards quietly and decide which statements describes their own personality. Players should then separate their cards into two piles: One with cards which describe their personality. The other with cards which they feel do not describe their personality. Tell them not to worry about the card colour yet (that comes later). Players should leave the cards in the pile which describes their personality on their chairs. The others will be ‘traded’ with others in the room. Players now begin to exchange their “rejected” cards with other players who feel that card does describe their personality. Encourage players to move around the room to do this. Allow 10 minutes for the exchanging. 4 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  5. 5. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Golden rules to tell the group Players can give someone else a card but do not have to accept one in return. There are no right or wrong answers to this task. It does not matter how many cards a player has by the end of the game. Their target is to get rid of the cards that do not describe them. If they are left with some after this part, it doesn’t matter. Most importantly - have fun! By the end of this part of the MASH Test players will have a set of cards that they feel describes their personality. Any remaining cards which they were unable to exchange should be put aside. 5 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  6. 6. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Feedback to the group It is now time to move onto the results. Everyone should sit back down. Each player should now sort their cards out into colours and work out what colour they have the most of (see image). Hand out a copy of Worksheet 01 “Personality Types” to each player. Introduce the 4 personality types: Cool Blue (responsible) Racy Red (ambitious) Golden Yellow (thrill seeker) Loyal Green (considerate & caring) 6 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  7. 7. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Personality types The worksheet explains what personality type they are, based on the colours in their hand. This is a general association and not intended to be completely accurate. Everyone is a mix but they are likely to have a ‘dominant’ colour or one that fits best. If players have equal amounts of colours, it is up to them to decide which personality type best matches them. Ask for a volunteer from each colour type to read out the description to the group from Worksheet 1. For example if your volunteer is a ‘cool blue’ ask them to read the ‘cool blue’ descriptor. If no one volunteers then read this out loud yourself. Ask each volunteer if they agree with this descriptor. Do they think it is a fair reflection? Repeat with a player of each colour so that all four colours have been introduced to the group. Allow 5 minutes for class discussion. 7 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  8. 8. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Discovering more about you Each player should now look at all their cards in more detail. Point out the capital-letter-icons spelling out the word ‘MASH’ at the foot of each card. Tell the players that MASH stands for Money Academic Social Health Indicate that on each card one letter is highlighted in black. The content on this card corresponds with this letter. Hand out a copy of Worksheet 02 “Discovering More About You” to each player. This gives a more detailed breakdown of each of the MASH variables in their colours. For example if a player has many Red ‘M’ cards, they can find out more about their personality by reading the ‘Racy Red’ statement in the Money category on the worksheet. Players can tick next to which of the categories fits them best. For example, players may find they are Green for ‘A’, ‘S’ & ‘H’ but Red for ‘M’. 8 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  9. 9. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Section conclusion At the end of the game, players will have more of an idea how particular personality traits can affect personal finance decisions. By using the resources in UNIAID Interactive, learners will learn how to deal with financial challenges in a variety of circumstances. If you are using the MASH Test alongside other parts of the UNIAID Interactive curriculum (see www.uniaidinteractive.co.uk) then it might help if students record their ‘colour’ and preferences as a reference point for other activities. This part of the MASH Test may be followed by: Activity 1B – ‘Good Hair, Bad Hair’ (Teacher’s Notes 02) 15 minutes Activity 1C – ‘Mix and Match’ (Teacher’s Notes 03) 10 minutes (Worksheets and teacher’s notes on the DISC and website: www.UNIAIDinteractive.org.uk) 9 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  10. 10. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Good hair, bad hair Activity summary A fun and thought-provoking activity in which groups sharing the same profile explore their behaviour in more detail. Learning objectives To discover the characteristics of the personality profiles discovered in the MASH test. To understand how personality traits can affect financial behaviour. Instructions NOTE: activity only works if preceded by activity 1A, MASH Test Card Game Divide the class into 4 groups based on their MASH-card-personality type: Group 1 – Cool Blue Group 2 – Racy Red Group 3 – Golden Yellow Group 4 – Loyal Green This is the recommended layout of the room. The arrows symbolise natural connections between the personalities, the dashed arrow symbolising a very loose connection. Knowing this, you can detect the similarities and differences between the groups and aid any discussions. For example, Racy Reds and Cool Blues are both good at looking after their money etc. 10 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  11. 11. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Supply each group with a sheet of flipchart paper and markers. Allocate roles One group member should be the scribe. One group member should be the spokesperson. Each group should be given Worksheet 03 “Good Hair, Bad Hair”. Read the worksheet headings to the groups. Each group should discuss each heading on the worksheet (clues are given on the worksheet) and choose an example for each that represents their type. You should encourage discussion between group members, perhaps prompting them to discuss a particular issue. You should give around 10 minutes for this discussion. Once the groups are finished, ask each group in turn to present their choices (and reason for making them) to the rest of the class. You should try to point out any differences, similarities, tensions and compatibilities between groups. Things to ask the students Did groups find this exercise easy? Did everyone agree on certain points? Were there any surprises to people in the groups? It could help to share insight about your own personality type – if you’ve done the MASH Test. Allow at least 5 minutes for further discussion and reflections Learning outcomes Students will be able to relate their personality type to their approach to their finances and financial situations. 11 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  12. 12. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Mix and match In this session, learners will evaluate the personality traits of characters from All About U, (an online game from UNIAID which may be accessed for free at www.allaboutu.org.uk). Note: This activity should be preceded by the MASH Test and Mix and Match (activities 1A & 1B) Learning objectives To recognise the characteristics of different personalities. To identify diversity between personality types. Instructions Divide the class into the 4 personality groups as determined in the two previous activities. Please note that this activity does not work unless preceded by the MASH test. If you have not already, give out copies of Worksheets 01 and 02 to each person. Hand out a copy of the All About U profiles to each group, which are available from www.allaboutu.org.uk. Also give each person a copy of Worksheet 04 “Knowing Me, Knowing U”. Ask each group to read through the character profiles and workout the personality type of each profile: Cool Blue Racy Red Golden Yellow Loyal Green 12 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
  13. 13. THE UNIAID M A S H T E S T Groups should pick out distinct characteristics from each of the All About U characters. Groups should decide on what colour best suits the character. Again, some of the profiles are a mix of two colours. The aim is to enable learners to understand the characteristics of others. Allow 10 minutes for this process. Stop the activity and give out the answers. Model answers Notice that some characters have a mix of two colours. The ‘dominant personality colour’ is in CAPITALS. The ‘supporting personality colour’ in small case. Name Colour Possible reasons Joe GREEN / Yellow People person, likes giving and helping others / Likes going out and watching live bands Sanchia RED /Yellow Own business, organised speed dating, likes making money / Going out style Kami GREEN / Blue Family, lasting friendships, values / Specifies food type and drinking etc Sarah BLUE /Green Afraid to miss anything, perfectionist, works above her normal workload / Values friendship Darren YELLOW ‘about £2000’ in debt (doesn’t really know), biggest in debt, party animal How did everyone do? Enforce the messages that: ALL preferences are natural ALL are naturally different There are NO right or wrong answers Learning outcomes Students will be able to identify other personality types. This could help them make better decisions, develop understanding and empathy with fellow students and improve their financial ability to cope with finance at University or college. 13 © UNIAID Foundation 2007, Waterbridge House, 32 – 36 Loman Street, Southwark, London, SE1 0EE Tel. 020 7922 7790 Published 2007 Design by Rubbaglove
