Dress Up/ Career Social roles are the part people play as members of a social group.
PROBLEM: With each social role you adopt, your behavior changes to fit the expectations that both you and others have of the particular role.
The guard and the prisoner both"played the part", but due to the power of the situation, lost themselves in their role.
The prisoner became so emerged in his role that he truly believed he was a prisoner, and refused to leave the study.
"It's not the Apple that is bad, but the barrel." Cady was unexpectedly given the role as a "plastic".
Her behavior changed to fit the the expectations others had of her in that role. The Power of the Situation Camp-Wannado Role-Playing Activity New environment introduced to the kids
