Answer: The doctor is the boy's mother.

Categorise yourself

Imagine you are going to introduce yourself to somebody, and you're going to tell them seven things about yourself. Write down what you would say to them.

Look at what you've written. For each piece of information, work out the category name for that information. For example, the category name for 'I'm twenty-six' could be 'age'

How have you categorised yourself?

Now imagine that you're going to start at a new school and will have to introduce yourself to different people. First write down the seven things you would say to present yourself to your new teacher. Then write down the seven things you would say to present yourself to the person you see playing your favourite game in the playground during lunch-break. Are they the same seven things? Now work out the category name for all those pieces of information. Did you categorise yourself differently for the different people? Or did you just give different information within the same categories? What does this tell you about how we categorise ourselves?
