    Well....   I associate "role-playing" with some of the activities that are done at corporations these days; so I think, "stupid" (the activity, not the people doing it - but maybe the people who think it's a useful thing to do at a company  hmm  ).  I'm aware that people sometimes do role-playing in other settings, but I only associate with those corporate "get-togethers" that - sorry - I do think are a stupid way to get messages across to employees.  Maybe it's just me, but I'd also think "stupid" if it were in a setting like a counseling session.  (In case I wasn't already clear...   Please understand I mean that the activity is "stupid".  I'm not referring to you AT ALL by coming up with that word as my "word-association thing" for "role-playing".

      Oh, do not worry. I understand! And, honestly, I completely agree. Thank you for your opinion. (:

    I agree--"stupid."
    Years back, when I tried being a "Tupperware Lady,"  (LOL--Epic Fail!)... they did these workshops with role-playing on how to convince the hostess to book another party, or the guests to book one at all.

    The trouble I found was, the people we needed to convince WERE NOT AT THE WORKSHOP TO LEARN THEY SHOULD AGREE to our "persuasions."

      That would be the worst part, wouldn't it? It is always easier to play the correct role when everyone knows their script.

    I hear "role-playing" and I immediately think of my college roommate who was into Dungeons and Dragons and other "role-playing" games that were popular in the 80s. Man, he was annoying. Haha

      Haha, Dungeons and Dragons is fun, though! It is still popular, though not as much. (:
