Seminario “Accuracy and bias in the perception of facial emotion expressions...”
Il Dipartimento di Psicologia dei Processi di Sviluppo e Socializzazione organizza il seminario “Accuracy and bias in the perception of facial emotion expressions: Implications for the regulation of social interaction”.
Emotional exchanges are an integral part of interactions in social and personal relationships and, consequently, the ability to decode others' emotional expressions is significant for the functioning of interactions and relationships. The talk will present results from recent studies that demonstrate the differential functions of accuracy and bias in emotion perception for social interactions. These studies combined laboratory emotion perception assessment tasks with event sampling of emotional experience in naturally occurring social interactions. Overall, assessments of accuracy and bias in the decoding of facial emotion expressions were unrelated. Emotion decoding bias was associated with overall perceiving interactions more negatively. Accurate perceptions of emotion expressions were associated with higher quality of social interactions, especially in Greece, a more interdependent culture. A further study demonstrated that accuracy, but not bias, was associated with higher emotion regulation in face to face social interactions. The findings highlight the social functionality of accuracy and bias in the perception of facial emotion expressions and that emotion recognition generalizes from the laboratory to everyday life.
