Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part V: Fear and Surprise

January 14, 2019

Facial expression recognition is mediated by a distributed neural system in humans that involves multiple, bilateral regions. There are six basic facial expressions that may be recognized in humans (fear, sadness, surprise, happiness, anger, and disgust); however, fearful faces and surprised faces are easily confused in rapid presentation.

In today's episode Jake explains how the concept of surprise and fear is relevant to many aspects of human behavior. It also affects beliefs about other events. When a person takes an unexpected stance that violates his or her self-interest, the person’s arguments are surprising and quite often more persuasive.

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part IV: Disgust and Contempt

January 7, 2019

In today's episode Jake breaks down the 4th part of Understanding Emotions. He discusses Disgust and Contempt.

Analyzing the contempt as an intergroup emotion, we suggest that contempt and anger are not built upon each other, whereas disgust seems to be the most elementary and specific basic-emotional antecedent of contempt.

Want to enjoy positive work relationships, healthy relationships with friends, family and partners?  Dump the contempt.  Listen well.  And pump up the positivity! When those more vulnerable feelings are explored in safety and grieved dyadically, a corrective emotional experience may occur. You can’t build a temple of appreciation without fully excavating the building site.

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part III: Guilt and Shame

December 31, 2018

In today's we discuss deeper into Guilt and Shame. Jake discusses potentially the unhealthy cycles of shame and guilt. We encourage you to think of instances in your life where you may be requiring deed based performances from people in order for you to extend forgiveness, and ask yourself are these deeds really necessary for you to forgive them?

Similar to respect and trust, it is up to us to extend these to people. Is it really necessary for us to require people to ‘earn’ these things from us with an arbitrary deed? On the flip side, maybe you think certain people in your life are requiring too much from you. Jake gives everyday examples of where this may occur and delves deeper into forgiveness and the emotions of shame and guilt.
