Learning through play isn't just for kids, you know. Let me show you how escape room games can bring out the best, and worst in all of us!

Self-Improvement Can Be Fun!

Bilbo and Gollum, two of the most famous literary characters, have a lot in common. Both were hobbits, small and cunning, and both had a love for riddles. But there is one major difference between the two: Bilbo Baggins had a strong personality, while Gollum did not.

Why is this important? Because your personality traits are what make you who you are. They determine how you interact with the world and how the world interacts with you. If you have strong personality traits, you're more likely to be successful in life.

As humans, we are constantly trying to improve ourselves. We go to therapy, read self-help books, and try to change our bad habits. But the road to self-improvement is a long and difficult one. It's easy to get discouraged and give up.

Moreover, traditional ways of improving your personality traits, such as therapy and self-help books, can be expensive and time-consuming. They often require a lot of effort and discipline that many people simply don't have.

But what if there was a more fun way to improve yourself? What if you could do something that you enjoy while also working on your personality traits?

What Can Be Improved While Playing Escape Room Games?

whistling-face-graffiti-decal

The first thought that comes to mind when thinking about escape rooms is probably not self-improvement. Rather, thoughts such as mystery, investigation, challenge, adventure, bravery, darkness, risk, and time limit come to mind. But escape games can actually provide you with more than just a fun challenge. They can also help you improve several important personality traits.

Here are seven personality traits that you can work on while playing escape room games:

Responsibility

The ability to make responsible decisions is an important personality trait to have. In real life, there are often many people counting on you. If you make a bad decision, it could ruin your own life and the lives of those around you.

In escape room games, you often have to work as a team to solve puzzles and find clues. This requires you to be able to communicate well and work together efficiently. But it also requires you to be able to make responsible decisions. If you're not careful, you could make a mistake that causes your team to fail.

Remember how Frodo Baggins had to make the decision to destroy the One Ring? That was a pretty big responsibility. He had to choose between saving the world or allowing it to be destroyed. Luckily, he made the right decision.

Accuracy

Escape room riddles are often designed to test your accuracy. They require you to pay attention to detail and notice things that most people would miss.

For example, you might have to find a hidden message in a clue. Or you might have to solve a puzzle by inputting the correct code. If you're not accurate, you're likely to make mistakes that could cost you and your team the game.

Although in the escape rooms, it is just a game, in real life, being accurate is often a matter of life and death. If Samwise Gamgee had not judged Gollum's character accurately, Frodo Baggins would have been killed. That's why it's important to work on your accuracy.

Openness

An important part of being a good team player is being open to new ideas. If you're too set in your ways, you're likely to dismiss ideas that could be helpful.

In escape room games, you need to work as a unit to solve riddles. This means that you need to be open to hearing their ideas and considering them. You can't just dismiss an idea because you think you know better.

In the Lord of the Rings, Gandalf is always open to new ideas. He was always willing to listen to what others had to say. This made him a great leader and an invaluable asset to the Fellowship.

Adaptability

Adaptability is an important personality trait to have. Life is full of surprises, and you never know when you're going to have to deal with a sudden change.

In escape room games, you're exposed to different challenges that you have to adapt to. For example, you might be presented with a locked door that you have to find a way to open. Or you might have to figure out how to solve a puzzle before the timer runs out.

To succeed, you need to be able to adapt quickly and come up with solutions on the fly.

Improved Collaboration Skills

No one wins an escape room on their own. Most designers plan their escape rooms to keep 4-8 people busy for an hour. We've tried solving some with just two people, and it's really difficult. We don't recommend it.

Escape rooms improve teamwork skills. You learn quickly how to work and play well with others when you have a series of puzzles and only one hour to solve them.

Escape room riddles teach you how to value input from others. Your teammate may solve a puzzle with a glance that had you frustrated and confused. Escape rooms quickly reveal that everyone has a strength and can contribute to the group's success. You can carry these lessons with you to all other aspects of your life.

Reliability

We are often reliant on others to help us achieve our goals. And in turn, others are often reliant on us. There are many times in life when it's important to be a reliable person.

During escape room games, your team will be relying on you to help them solve puzzles and find clues. If you're not reliable, you could let your team down and cause them to lose the game.

Samwise Gamgee was a reliable friend to Frodo Baggins. He was always there when Frodo needed him. And he never let him down. That's why Frodo was able to rely on him to help him destroy the One Ring.

Being reliable is an important part of being a good team player. It's also an important quality to have in life.

Positivity

A positive attitude is a key to success. Without any positive attitude, no fight could be victorious! It is needed to be realistic. Nevertheless, hope gives motivation and activates such intrinsic powers that can do wonders! Being optimistic means that you allow fate to let you be successful.

Escape rooms help you develop a positive attitude. This is because they often require you to think outside the box to solve puzzles. If you're not positive, you're likely to give up when you encounter a difficult challenge.

Courage

Courage is a virtue that is often tested in escape room games. You might have to face your fears in order to solve a puzzle or find a clue.

For example, you might have to enter a dark room. Or you might have to climb up a ladder to reach a clue. If you're not courageous, you might not be able to complete the challenge.

Courage is also an important quality to have in life. If you're not courageous, you might suffer from anxiety and miss out on opportunities.

Escape room riddles can help you develop all of these important personality traits and even more. They can teach you how to think outside the box, be a good team player, and be more positive. So if you're looking for a way to improve your personality, escape room riddles are a great option.
