The Nametag Manifesto — Chapter 7: The End of Hesitation

[ View the infographic! ]

“Everyone should wear nametags, all the time, everywhere, forever.”

That’s my thesis, philosophy, dangerous idea and theory of the universe.

My name is Scott, and I’ve been wearing a nametag for past four thousand days.

And after traveling to hundreds of cities, a dozen countries, four continents, meeting tens of thousands of people, constant experimentation and observation, building a enterprise and writing a dozen books in the process, I believe, with all my heart, that the societal implications of wearing nametags could change everything.

This is my manifesto:

6. The End of Dishonesty

If everybody wears nametags, untruthfulness becomes extremely difficult.

We’re all lie detectors. Instead of manipulating the way other people see us, now, what we see is what we get, despite our best efforts to obscure the truth.

We’ve returned to a world without a backstage. We’re always going to be known for what we’re about to do. And as such, we start choosing smarter.
Now we can stop racking our brains trying to remember what we told and to whom. Now we can use our brains for more creative and valuable functions. Like listening and sharing and connecting and feeling.

If everybody wears nametags, no more dishonorable action, no more lying and no more aliases.

The Nametag Manifesto — Chapter 5: The End of Social Conflict

[ View the infographic! ]


“Everyone should wear nametags, all the time, everywhere, forever.”

That’s my thesis, philosophy, dangerous idea and theory of the universe.

My name is Scott, and I’ve been wearing a nametag for past four thousand days.

And after traveling to hundreds of cities, a dozen countries, four continents, meeting tens of thousands of people, constant experimentation and observation, building a enterprise and writing a dozen books in the process, I believe, with all my heart, that the societal implications of wearing nametags could change everything.

This is my manifesto:

5. The End of Social Conflict

If everybody wears nametag, the awkwardness goes away.

The cost of interaction approaches zero. We feel more comfortable engaging because we have nothing to lose. Never again do we have to work down the hall or live down the street from people – for years at a time – without knowing their name.

It’s simple: Conflict leads to uncertainty, which leads to anxiety, which leads to avoidance.
But with nametags, the ice is never not broken. Guesswork is a thing of the past.

Now, all first impressions are good impressions. We’ve sidestepped the entire spectrum of social awkwardness that stems from not knowing people’s names. And this frees us to focus on the conversation at hand – instead of the silent dialogue of self-consciousness.

We never have to wonder who anybody is. We can connect faster, better and truer.

If everybody wears nametags, no more shyness, no more avoidance behavior and no more social blunders.

The Nametag Manifesto — Chapter 4: The End of Human Commoditization

[ View the infographic! ]

“Everyone should wear nametags, all the time, everywhere, forever.”

That’s my thesis, philosophy, dangerous idea and theory of the universe.

My name is Scott, and I’ve been wearing a nametag for past four thousand days.

And after traveling to hundreds of cities, a dozen countries, four continents, meeting tens of thousands of people, constant experimentation and observation, building a enterprise and writing a dozen books in the process, I believe, with all my heart, that the societal implications of wearing nametags could change everything.

This is my manifesto:

4. The End of Human Commoditization
If everybody wears nametags, it’s impossible to put each other into boxes.

We no longer have to address each other by a label, job, condition, color, ethnicity or role. We simply say the name and honor the truth instead of degenerating into depersonalization. We unite through personhood, not position or preference.
Nametags enable a greater sense of comfort, connection and humanity in our relationships. They remind us to treat people like people. They enable us to make a name for ourselves before anyone else gets a chance to.

Our answer to the question, “What do you see when you see people?” has changed forever. Now, we see humanity before statistics, personality before position and individuality before industry. We stop viewing certain people as a separate category of people, and start seeing everybody as a member of the same family.

They’re humans, just like us. In fact, they are us. And we are them.

If everybody wears nametags, no more judgmentalism, no more hierarchy and no more robbing people of their humanity.

The Nametag Manifesto — Chapter 3: The End of Anonymity

“Everyone should wear nametags, all the time, everywhere, forever.”

That’s my thesis, philosophy, dangerous idea and theory of the universe.

My name is Scott, and I’ve been wearing a nametag for past four thousand days.

And after traveling to hundreds of cities, a dozen countries, four continents, meeting tens of thousands of people, constant experimentation and observation, building a enterprise and writing a dozen books in the process, I believe, with all my heart, that the societal implications of wearing nametags could change everything.

This is my manifesto:

3. The End of Anonymity
If everybody wears nametags, nobody is winking in the dark.

Namelessness ceases to exist. Everyone feels seen. Everyone feels witnessed. Nobody is given the chance to be forgotten. We are promiscuous with the deliverance of psychological visibility. And we elevate each other by assuring that nobody’s life goes unnoticed, unaffirmed or misunderstood.
This is especially helpful for Alzheimer’s sufferers, memory loss patients and people battling dementia or multiple personality disorder. Nametags are reminders, visual cues and memory triggers. They work because our brains store words and images easier than a string of seemingly unconnected numbers.

Point being, most of what we do in life has no witness. But it is the sum of our witnesses that creates the complete picture of who we are. By wearing nametags, we now treat everyone we encounter with a spirit of acknowledgement. We give the gift of namaste.

If everybody wears nametags, no more invisibility, no more insignificance and no more nameless faces in the crowd.
