Dramatica Definition: Subjective Story Focus

Subjective Story Focus • [Element] • the principal symptom of the difficulties between the Main Character and the Obstacle Character, where attention is focused in the subjective story • When there is a problem in the relationship between the Main and Obstacle character, they look at it from their subjective point of view and cannot see its actual nature because it lies on the level of their motivations. Instead they focus their attention on what they believe to be the source of their problems which is really an effect of the problem. This area is called the Subjective Story Focus.
