    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.

    I don't think I've done that specific type of role play before. But when we're asked to role play a client in training, I often see colleagues sort of basing their role play on someone I think I recognise..

    Puddy_Tat hmm

    generally sounds a bit crap.

    i have done something at a job interview / assessment where i've been (inadequately) briefed and someone has acted a specific situation as client / customer

    in a different context, i did encounter a personals ad online where someone said they were in to roll play (presume this was something kinky involving baked goods but i didn't ask...)

    I think role play can be quite good. Cut through all the verbal bollocks, and let people make what they will of a situation.

    This is somebody’s tip, and it fits me fine.

    Nah, roll play rocks! It's a secondary level of comprehension, as it means you can see things from someone else's viewpoint. But then it's also very interior, because any role play can only ever come from US, it's not like you're channelling someone else, it's still your invention, and as such can give good insight into your own personality.

    I'm talking role play in work and in sex, it's quite an interesting parallel.

    if you get to dress up as a terrorist and run around with a gun its fun, well till you end up blindfolded and being dragged towards a black helicopter. If you dealing with customer complaints its bollocks.
