Sanford Meisner put his attention to exercises that develop "instantaneous" spontaneity, "excitation of the flow of impulses", when the game becomes a reaction to what is happening, and not a goal pursuing a predetermined result.
He developed a method that gives the actor access to their own emotions. The most difficult thing for a theater actor is to listen. Meisner focused on exercises that elicit a natural response from the actor in the process of dialogue, he focused the actor's attention on his stage partner.
