As an actor you are required to be able to elicit emotion. Stanislavski’s questions help produce such emotion through performances. Stanislavski’s questions are a series of questions which assist actors to enhance the emotion in their performance to make them more convincing. The method which was produced by Constantin Stanislavski, a Russian actor and director, was based on the concept of emotional memory in which an actor is able to focus on internally portraying a character’s emotions onstage. This questions were the result of Stanislavski’s hard work to discover how someone can control the most intangible and uncontrollable aspects of human behavior, such as emotions and art inspiration in their performance.
Barkley (2009), define this as “notions of self-regulatory process that goes beyond fragments of self”, in person-oriented emotion regulation, the person’s functioning is coordinated by integrating as many subsystems and processes as possible for supporting a chosen course of action. Kuhl explains (as cited in Barkley, 2009) that regulating people’s actions in harmony with their inner needs, motives and autobiographical experience highlighted the support of “inner democracy”. Barkley (2009), identified to main ways in which emotion regulation may coordinate the functioning of the whole person, first is person-oriented emotion regulation may prevent people from becoming trapped in specific motivational-emotional states, second is by facilitating emotional changes, emotion regulation may promote coherence in personality functioning and personal growth. Person-oriented emotion regulation somehow seeks to bridge the division between mind and body, thus bodily activities integrate the emotion regulatory activities such as meditation and

Flashbulb Memories Memories play an important role in our lives, sometimes remembering a certain event can change our mood completely.

All of us can probably think of an example of an event that happened many years ago but we still remember it as if it happened yesterday. Such memories are called flashbulb memories because of their vividness and the details that can be remembered about them. Keeping that in mind the question that arises is what makes us remember certain events more vividly than others i.e.
Schachter and Singer were both agree with the James-Lange Theory and Cannon-Bard Theory. They agreed that people infer emotions when they experience physiological arousal and the same pattern of physiological arousal can give rise to different emotions. The last evolutionary theories were the cognitive theory. It says “several theories began to argue that cognitive activity in the form of judgments, evaluations, or thoughts were entirely necessary for an emotion to occur.” An American psychologist Richard Lazarus who contended that emotions must have some cognitive intentionality was one of the main advocator of this view. The interpretation of an emotional context of cognitive activity may be conscious or unconscious and may or may not take the form of conceptual processing.
“Knowledge of how represent a real-life physical situation in symbolic way is truly remarkable achievement of the human mind.” (Danesi, 2004:33) It allows elimination physical invention of symbol through representation of the real world to its meanings.

Dramaturgy tries to understand how order and ordering is established by a performance. Dramaturgy questions how each performance is enacted, what symbols are used to reach what effect.
Types of Synesthesia Most defintions of synesthesia refer to cross modal sensory experiences. That is experiences where a percept in one sense initiates or co-occurs with a percept in another sense. This in itself is not uncommon. Scientists are starting to learn that the brain integrates sensory information all the time. Perhpas the way we see synesthesia will change over time as we understand it more and people discuss it more readily.
Introduction of Question 5: Emotion Emotion is often defined as a complex state of feeling that results in physical and psychological changes that influence thought and behavior, it involves mental arousal, expressive behaviors, and conscious experience (Meyers, 2004), and there is no consensus on a definition.

The main character of the novel represents the double identification in order to serve his individual needs, however, the characters in the play analyze the social needs and convert those expectations in order to their self-representation. The idea of ‘I love acting. It is so much more real than life’ can be examined in two ways. First, the concept of adoration towards acting includes the idea of Oscar Wilde’s telling lies.
