"chicken and the egg" problem for benchmark

Postby phillybudd » Mar 16, 2010 2:12 pm

The Dramatica software assigned my IC a concern of "Developing a Plan", which is perfect.

But the the IC Benchmark is "Conceiving an Idea", with the instruction "Illustrate how Conceiving an Idea is the standard against which the IC's concern (Developing a Plan) is measured."

I'm intrigued by this apparent reversal of logic here (how can he develop plans that he hasn't conceived of yet?), but am a little stuck on how I might illustrate this.

Any ideas appreciated.
