How we change what others think, feel, believe and do
The Interrogator poses a Problem which the Seeker must solve.
Puzzles and problems draw the reader into the situation as they (the reader) also seeks to understand and resolve the puzzle.
A basis of the motivation we feel to resolve puzzles is the need for completion and the consequent reward of closure. Resolving enigmas makes us feel clever and intellectual and hence more able to face life's other challenges.
'The Enigma' is the 11th of Georges Polti's 36 Dramatic Situations.
