Roleplaying has an amazing use in real life. Usually a role mirrors our desire, our true identity but sometimes it’s also just one side of this identity. You may think this is not true because you often played a role that has nothing to do with your true self … well, the way you played it and the reason you picked that role is because something in you needed to come out. A role can start as part of you or you can discover on the way that its part of your personality. This is valid if we are not talking about senseless accounts such as testtest, I am talking about the players that really play a role here.
Because of this nature of a role, it usually happens you gain more confidence in yourself and develops that part of your personality that you have selected for that role you play in the game. A 13-year-old boy who plays a mighty warrior role will develop his courage and his personality in that way and some day he will see changes in the way he acts in real life too. We NEED role-playing, role-playing is for personality what dreams are for the brain sanity.
