Topic: Emotional Intelligence
This module/week, you are going to test the “Facial Feedback Hypothesis.” First, have 5 friends/colleagues/family members hold a pencil in their mouths showing their teeth for 30 seconds. Then, ask them to rate how happy they feel on a scale of 1–7 (1 = very unhappy, 7 = very happy). Second, have another 5 friends/colleagues/family members hold a pencil in their mouths without showing their teeth (i.e., lips together) for 30 seconds. Then, ask them to rate how happy they feel on a scale of 1–7 (1 = very unhappy, 7 = very happy). For your thread, complete the following:
- Summarize the facial feedback hypothesis, citing the course textbook.
- Prior to the experiment, what do you expect your findings to be?
- What were your findings? For example, the average rating was # for Group 1 (teeth showing) versus # for Group 2 (no teeth).
- Were your findings consistent with the Facial Feedback Hypothesis? Why or why not?
- Why do you think God created us to experience emotions?
