CMN 135—study guide exam 3 *Communicating Emotions   Universalist Position  (Darwin) Emotional expressions are innate and inherited.  Emotions are developed through evolution.   Cultural Relativist Position  (Mead, Birdwhistell) Emotional expression is specific to a given culture.  We learn which expressions go with which emotion  and under what circumstances we should express an emotion. Neuro-Cultural Theory  (Ekman) Emotions are prewired in the human brain, but we learn culture specific rules for displaying those  emotions.  Components of Neuro-Cultural Theory 1. Elicitors     :  Events that stimulate emotion in the human brain (mostly culture specific) 2. Affect Program      (universal)  Universal Emotions Anger, Happiness, Disgust, Surprise, Sadness, Fear Facial Expression Test   Neuro-Cultural Theory 3. Consequences of emotional arousal. Example:  You are out with a group of friends at a nightclub.  Midway through the evening, one of your  friends comes back to the table with a man (the elicitor ) she has met dancing.  It turns out that you know  him from one of your classes, and you think he is loud and obnoxious and are annoyed (affect program   activated ) that she brought him to the table.  However, because you are in a social situation and she is a  close friend, you do not display an overt expression of dislike or anger, adopting instead a polite, but  weak smile. Facial Deceit Display Rules : govern the appropriateness of expressive behavior and are used to regulate or manage  one’s expressive behavior Engage in facial deceit: 1. Cultural conventions 2. Personal display rules 3. Vocational requirements
