“Face changing” in words and deeds
Once a person assumes a certain role, his words, behaviors and thinking methods will change with the role.
Some companies often use performance-based vocational training to promote mutual understanding among colleagues, or to relieve patients’ doubts.
The concept of this training method is mainly based on the difficulty of communication between people. By exchanging positions with each other, understanding the positions and ideas of the other party can be more thorough and complete in terms of actions and persuasion.
Of course, after changing back to the original role, not only did you fully understand the other party, the other party also had a better understanding of your role and role.
Yale University in the United States has done a similar experiment, the “speech quiz”, mainly asking the tester to set aside the original idea, let him arrange the content of his speech, affect his perspective, and eventually change his mind.
Movie star Jane?
Fonda is a typical example. She was keen on the liberation movement of the Indians because she had played this role in the movie, and the fate of the Indians in the play was quite tragic.
It can be seen that once a person plays a certain role, his own thoughts will change with the role.
Just as we have been appointed to a certain position in the company, in order to work, we must try our best to make our abilities, behaviors, and ways of thinking meet the requirements of the position.
For example, a colleague who has been promoted to a managerial position will no longer have the same consciousness of associates and workers as usual, as before.
This role theory is not only applicable to business education, but also can be widely applied in changing attitudes.
For example, in order to change the bad habits of bad teenagers, he can be appropriately given the role of the person in charge of management, so that he can change his past actions when performing the role.
