Passengers on the bus metaphor

The passengers on the bus metaphor suggests that we are not solely defined by a single unified self, but rather by the interplay and coexistence of various internal forces. Each passenger on the bus has their own unique perspective, needs, and motivations, which can sometimes conflict with one another.

In this reel, Joe talks through how the passengers represent different parts of ourselves. Sometimes these passengers have very different viewpoints on which way we should go:

Some parts want to protect us and keep us safe.

Other parts want to be seen and heard.

The key is for the bus driver to listen to each part, understand their perspectives and work out shared aims and goals. In this way, everyone can co-operate together to get the bus moving forward in an organised and co-ordinated way.
