Introduction– write a few lines about the behaviour of a person and what are the important factors deciding a particular behaviour/ disposition.
Body- Discuss how a person will reveal himself more during a playful event rather than during a planned/ unplanned conversation. Try to brainstorm and find the reasons behind such behaviour. E.g less control over behaviour during a play; competitive nature of the play which brings out the true character of the participants; broad set of behaviours involved during a play than during a conversation; higher consciousness and a relaxed atmosphere during conversation which favours more control over one’s behaviour etc. These examples are just for guidance purposes and it is advised to refer the articles attached to the question, and other relevant material, to frame your answer.
