t cite lecture notes *draw on assigned readings or outside sources (aim to cite at least 3) -pseudonyms for names - can intertwine explanation and theory work or separate it out The missing theory of system 2 System 2- the reasoning system. Slow deliberate, logical way. Remember this fact about the brain? When there is the time and space to stop and think, system 2 kicks in How does this stage of conscious feeling influence our decision making? What social systems exist outside the brain to help process Arlie Hochschild: 1940 How does capitalism make us feel and shape who we are? How does economics shape our personal life?
10 The Managed Heart, The Time Bind, The Second Shift, The Outsourced Self Hochschild s theory of emotion work Instead of focusing on how our emotions respond like a reflex, we should focus on the yardsticks by which we consciously and actively compare the feeling we re currently having to the one we think we should have. When we consciously and actively feel, we are comparing our spontaneous feelings to feeling rules. Guidelines for the assessment of fits and misfits between feeling and situation (1979:566) example: Funeral, you should be sad talent show: boy comes out on stage with a dramatic poetry reading- turns out it is a joke, people are laughing, I'm outraged, getting to that point- people know he's gay, ends up saying he s a republican at the end instead of gay Govern the extent, the direction, and duration of feeling in light of a given situation Feeling Rules: Feeling rules are just like other social rules: They designate a zone in which you can and cannot do certain things. They can be held onto firmly or loosely. They can be broken- intentionally or unintentionally BUT, feeling rules differ from other social rules: they are rules for motivating action before it happens EX: elevator, breaking the silence, eye contact on public transport the customer is always right (forced smiles for customer service) Emotion Work: When feeling and feeling rules aren t matching up, we typically try to make them fit together by manipulating emotion 2 types of emotion work Suppressive- when we try and disguise or eliminate inappropriate emotions evocative- when we try to display or stir up more appropriate emotions 2 depths of emotion work surface acting- shaping the display of feeling for the sake of others without changing the actual feeling inside ( faking it ) deep acting- shapingg the actual feeling inside Stanislavky and Strasberg- method acting *self talk might be involved- ex: friend is constantly complaining to you-reach down and pull out sympathy
