Steamrolling is when one improvisor does not listen to the Yes, and moves of their scene partner. This means pushing their own idea no matter what is said without reacting.

This might appear as speaking without breaks, walk ons or tag outs that don't support the moves of the players in the scene, actively shutting down or denying moves of other players, or other non-supportive moves.

Steamrolling may happen due to fear, inexperience, or lack of group mind. The term doesn't necessarily indicate bad intent, although that is possible
