Emotions reading isn't uiversal accross cultures

Recommended Posts

I found this interesting.


The article says that westerners read facial expression of emotions differently than East Asians (Chinese). East Asians trust eyes but not lower face/mouth muscles for reading/understanding emotions. Also, East Asians showed more diversity when classifying emotions. They needed such emotions like shame, pride, guilt in addition to the basic six emotions to classify facial expressions.
