Resource summary

  1. Primary Emotions: evolutionarily adaptive, shared across cultures, and associated with specific physical states (ex: anger, fear, sadness, happiness, disgust, surprise, contempt)
    1. Secondary Emotions: blends of primary emotions (ex: remorse, guilt, submission, shame, anticipation)
    2. Three Theories of Emotion
      1. James-Lange Theory: emotions result from the experience of physiological reactions from the body
        1. Cannon-Bard Theory: Emotions and bodily response both occur simultaneously
          1. Schachter-Singer two-factor theory: How an emotion is experienced is influenced by the cognitive label applied to explain the physiological changes explained
          2. Emotional Brain
            1. Amygdala: The "quick and dirty" system, processes emotional significance of stimuli & generates immediate emotional and behavioral reactions; assists in reading facial expressions
              1. Prefrontal Cortex: left and right frontal lobes are affected by different emotions, damage to either lobe impairs emotional experience
                1. Right prefrontal cortex: associated with negative emotions
                  1. Left hemisphere: associated with positive emotion
                2. Humor has many mental and physical health benefits
                  1. Distraction: Involves doing or thinking something other than the troubling activity or thought
                    1. Display Rules: rules that are learned through socialization and dictate what emotions are suitable in each situation
                      1. these rules tend to be different for men and women from culture to culture
                      2. Emotions influence thoughts
                        1. Affect-as-information: people use their current mood to make decisions and judgments even without knowing the source of their mood
                          1. Decision Making: anticipating how choices might affect our emotions can serve as a guide in decision making
                          2. Guilt: a negative emotional state associated with anxiety, tension, and agitation
                            1. socialization is sometimes considered more important than biology in determining how children experience guilt
                            2. embarrassment: often felt after violating a cultural norm, doing something clumsy, or experiencing something else that would cause a threat to their self image
                              1. People frequently blush when they feel embarrassed which indicates that there is an understanding of social awkwardness
