[[WMG: The "Real Person" reveals that Stanley isn't a real human.]]
Stanley is designed to make the correct choice. When you start make the wrong choices (going through the right door, ignoring the door on the left and unplugging the phone), you start acting completely independent, which is something that Stanley is incapable of doing himself.

[[WMG: The Narrator feels bad for Stanley and his pathetically simple life.]]
He's watched Stanley for a long time and has felt bad that Stanley has devoted his life to his job. Not once has Stanley wanted to do anything with his life. One day, the Narrator decided that enough was enough and that Stanley should finally start living his life. He decided to give Stanley the choice to stop living under someone else's control.

FreemansMind jokes aside, well, yeah, it is. Because all the past years of Stan monitoring the other employees, their mistakes (see the previous "2/3" WMG) developed in Stan a strong common sense, eventually evolving into a voice in his head - the narrator. Said narrator told Stanley what to do in order to avoid [[ViolationOfCommonSense the same mistakes made by the others,]] which is why the narrator [[WhatTheHellHero calls Stan out]] on disobeying his instructions.

[[WMG:The Narrator is Stanley's boss who made sure he was safe before he even started toying with Stanley.]]
This is how he knows everything, he has all the monitoring panels.

* I love this theory. It turns it into a DeconReconSwitch, and it makes sense. After all, what is the player but a force for chaos, death and cruelty in most games? Even here, if we just follow orders, Stanley gets to be happy. Our desire to explore, to see more of the game, to get the various endings, prolongs his suffering, and tortures him. But, if we just did as we were told, he'd be done and free. Imagine how it would feel to go through the most stressful part of your life over and over because some asshole was forcing you to, because they wanted to do it different ways, or they wanted to see it again, or most horrifying of all, they found it fun. The main ending is a happy ending, because Stanley is free. Not from The Narrator, but from us. From gamers. From being tortured for our fun. And that's how all games are. They're only free when we're done, and the longer we play, the more torture they go though. We lose control when turning off the mind control machine because the player is the mind controller. We are the monster forcing Stanley, and all game protagonists, through hell for our kicks.

* I just recently watched [[Series/JessicaJones2015 Jessica Jones]] and the British accent doesn't help me disagree.

[[WMG:Just as the Narrator's personality and motives change in each playthrough, the same is true of Stanley.]]
Through each different route taken by the player, a different side of the Narrator is shown and different motives are revealed. In some endings, he truly just wants to tell his story and is even friendly to Stanley (Confusion), while in others he displays a more sadistic personality and wants to kill Stanley no matter what (Futile). The same can be said of Stanley; some endings require that the player listen to the Narrator and follow his instructions (Freedom), while others require that he thwart the Narrator at every turn, even when he is being kind to Stanley (Stop Moving). Stanley himself is the one who desires to kill himself to spite the Narrator, or to accompany the Narrator on his journey with The Stanley Parable Adventure Line™; the player is simply guiding him through the choices he already wants to make.
