Wednesday October 28, 2015 Emotion Psychological arousal Heartbeat, sweat, dry mouth, etc. Cognitive interpretation I’m feeling this way; what emotion is it? How do I feel? Subjective feelings connected to emotions Behavioral expression of emotion Positive (approach) vs. negative (avoid) Universal emotions- biologically (not culturally) determined Disgust Drunk people couldn’t discriminate the face of disgust Happiness Anger Sadness Surprise Fear Contempt Arousal and Performance Inverted U (Yerkes-Dodson Law) Too much pressure can decrease performance Social facilitation/inhibition Are you facilitated by people watching you? Or inhibited? Arousal leads to the dominant response If you’re well practiced, dominant response is fine; if you’re not well practiced, dominant response is poor performance People watching you= arousal The more people, the more arousal If you don’t know what to do in this situation- it will cause social inhibition If you do know what to do in this situation- it will cause social facilitation

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
