Emotion Ch.10 (Option 2)

I took the test (https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/quizzes/ei_quiz) on how well I could read emotional facial expressions. I was surprised by my score of 16/20. I thought I was going to have a hard time with this test. I found that the amusement, politeness, and disgusted facial expressions were a few of the easier ones. The girl with the facial expression showing amusement looked like she was laughing, which made it easy. Each question had four choices, which helped out a lot. With the choices available I could narrow down the answer. I feel I would have gotten a lower grade if it was type your answer, but with the choices provided, you could pick the best option for the most part. Some of the hardest emotions for me to guess were love, guilt, and interest. I never really thought about what the facial expression for love looks like, and same with interest. The test overall was intriguing and I was interested in seeing how many I could actually get correct. In my daily life this could be helpful because I could pick up on how a person is feeling inside by their outside appearance, which could help me interact with them better.

  1. I can imagine that not having the multiple choice would have made it very difficutl to pinpoint the exact emotions you were looking for. Amusment could have simply looked like happiness, even though there was a more specific answer. It’s great that you are thinking of ways to apply this to your life, as emotions are an important part of social lives. With this information, however, I would wonder if you would want to take it with a grain of salt or not. I would be interested in hearing your opinions on this quiz’s credibility as well as if that impacts your interest in application of its results.
