other people think and feel.”. The effects of this study display clear evidence for the benefits of those who go to the theater. By taking an hour or two that the theater performance is to disconnect from our devices and pay attention to the show, audience members can truly benefit intellectually as seen through how students who watched the show were better able to appreciate what other people think and feel. Not only does being able to recognize emotion come from theater, it gives people a different experience than just watching another tv show rerun on Netflix and helps them differentiate themselves in a society in which so many of us are so similar. With this in mind, I truly believe that theatre helps to enhance our understanding of the human mind as even the study pointed out the huge benefit theater allows its audience to understand how humans may think or feel from just one performance. In my life specifically, being involved in theater throughout my childhood helped me to develop my emotional well-being and understanding qualities that I am proud of today. Current theater itself is underappreciated not only for my previous point on how it benefits our emotional intelligence, but more so because it helps us see the world in a new way instead of just becoming robots that watch the same media as everyone else. In our modern society, there are about six mass media companies that control what the population views as electronic entertainment - from 21st Century Fox to Disney - and theater helps to widen our view of society and look at stories from across time. While I know that theater is unappreciated, I am glad that at least throughout my life my parents have ensured that it is something I have access to as I think it’s helped me become the person I am today. I know with theater people can improve in their emotional intelligence as I did in addition to helping them differentiate themselves just a little from the rest of society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
