Role-play with a member of the opposite sex a first conversation or conflict disagreement between dating partners. First, enact the conversation from the perspective of your own sex. Then, enact the conversation again but with the roles reversed. Note any differences that emerge in how the conversation plays out. Do you detect any stereotypical behaviors that emerge when you swap roles? Does this help you better understand the opposite sex and their communication patterns?
