Role playing is at the basic level playing a role it is used in work situations as a way go through events eg angry customer and the proper way to defuse the situation there is also fantasy role playing where you play a different role to the norm so instead of being a shop worker you are a knight or a vampire or anything else you want to be you are then guided through events by the games master (GM or dungeon master DM) which you decide how your chosen charactor would react would you fight would you talk your way out of it would you just run away! there are (as far as i know) two types of role playing there is table top where you sit round with ya mates and talk out what you would do sometimes involving die to determin if you complete the task or not. then there is L.A.R.P (live action role playing) which involves dressing up as your chosen charactor and atcully acting out your responses
