Adaptive genres are temporary escapes that are driven by behavior modification. They describe tensions, circumstances, and conflicts that impact societies, and portray the influence of protagonists on the future.

Past experiences and knowledge are foundational to changes in personalities, and combine with personal difficulties from circumstances to create natural conflicts.
