So this week we dabbled in Status and how that effects body language. We did this first by doing an exercise where we would pick a card from ace to ten with ace being the low status and ten being the high. We were then asked to come into the room, sit in a chair and say our name, the manner of which we did that depending on the card we got. So people who got 5 and below acted more nervous and skittishly then people who got above 5 who acted confident and proud. Status isn't just an acting mechanic, its based on what happens in real life, but playing around with who has the higher status is a very interesting twist. A waitress getting the upper hand on her customer or a boss being push around by his employees. Status can lead to very interesting character dynamics just by switching up something generic into a more unique and funnier situation.
