TUNE IN, TURN ON, BOOT UP
Mind Mirror is an innovative, dynamic game bringing a whole new concept to "personality" software. Written by Dr. Timothy Leary, famous Harvard psychologist, author and lecturer, Mind Mirror combines the science of Leary's psychometric studies with his own inimitable wit and charm. Part tool, part game, and part philosopher on a disk, Mind Mirror is a provocative game perfect for parties or social gatherings like the popular board games "Scruples" or "Trivial Pursuit".
The Rating Games
Rate any person, place or concept with the numeric rating scales. Mind Mirror evaluates your ratings, gives you a brief text analysis and plots your input on comparison charts called Mind Maps. You can even use the ratings scales to create your own characters and personalities.
Try comparing yourself to your ideal self, yourself to a friend or loved one, even Reagan to Gorbachev. Be creative, have a partner rate you while you rate yourself... you'll be surprised at the differences.
Mind Play & Mind Tools
You can play the game using either Mind Play or Mind Tools. In Mind Play, applications are lighthearted, allowing you to explore topics and celebrities from areas like TV, films, athletics, and more. In Mind Tools, applications are somewhat more serious, focusing on Psychological Insight, Career Productivity, and Education.
Life Simulations gives you the opportunity to take any of the subjects or personalities used in the rating games on humorous, interactive text odesseys written by Dr. Leary.
You can play dozens of different life simulations in any of four psychological realms. For example, enter the realm of emotional insight and go back to kindergarten to face the class bully. Or try the realm of social interaction and spend an evening in a punk rock bar or a snooty bankers club.
"I think of this game as a thought processor, headware for the computer generation. It allows you to interface with virtually any concept or personality, and helps put your thoughts into digital form. Try playing with friends or loved ones. Gather around the firelight of the computer, and the chances are that you’ll learn more about them in 5 minutes than you ever thought would be possible in a lifetime."
- Dr. Timothy Leary
