A dubious management technique supposed to solve problems. Role-play is someone assuming to be someone else, pretending to be someone else – personality fake. I don’t know how it solves problems. I do not pander to role play, at work or in the community. We have to live with it, put up with it, and tolerate it. Not appreciate it. I’ll take any one for what they are as they are. Pretend to be someone else, becomes neither yourself nor the person impersonating. It is out of order. I am talking about furtively assuming other people’s identity. Not quite the acting of an imaginary situation such as to demonstrate and practice job roles, which is done openly with the consent of all parties.
