The Effects of Collaborative Block Creation on the Sense of Rolefulness

Daiki Kato, Mikie Suzuki


This study investigated the effects of collaborative LEGO® block creation on the sense of rolefulness; that is, the continuous sense of role satisfaction in an individual’s daily life. For this purpose, 59 Japanese female university students were divided into groups of three or four members and asked to collaboratively express themselves by using LEGO® blocks, figures, and base plates. Then, their scores on the rolefulness scale were compared before and after the collaborative block activity. The results showed that both social and internal rolefulness significantly increased through the activity. The implication of the findings is that collaborative block creation can facilitate the role-taking of participants and improve their sense of rolefulness.
