Problematic Play

Iridium's picture

Play can be problematic when a group of people involved into play are not at the similar levels of enthusiasm. If one of them feels tired of this play, the one’s tiredness will affect other people just like the effect of yawning. More and more people in the group get tired of this kind of play and finally they will agree to quit the play.

Then in the first place, one who raises the thought of the play may get hurt. Secondly, most people involved into the play will not enjoy themselves. As a result, some associative processes will followed, which we can never predict.
