In the March issue of the journal Psycological Science, the Jessica Tracy PhD student and Professor Richard Robins reported the result of three experiments that show that pride has a nonverbal expression that can be distinguished from other positive as happiness and exaltation emotions. People showing pride usually carries a small smile, by slightly tilting the head back, visibly expand its position and raise your arms above your head or even put hands on the waist, pictures of people in poses expressing different emotions, including possible expressions of pride were created in various experiments. Asked the participants to identify photos that corresponded to specific emotions, and that will determine which were associated with pride. The results of these experiments put the pride in a small group of emotions that have defined and recognizable expressions. These include the anger, outrage or disgust, fear, happiness, sadness, surprise, and possibly the scorn and shame.Tracy and Robins write: the results challenge the belief that positive emotions share the same non-verbal expressions.
They believe that the expression of pride is a form of nonverbal communication that has evolved in humans so that after achieving something, an individual can improve his social status by communicating its success to others through this expression. Tracy and Robins also speculate that expand the posture in this expression creates an impression of grandeur and thus expresses the sense of domination; and perhaps tilt the head backwards allows the individual noted above people showing superiority. Add Tracy and Robins, who feel proud can increase self-esteem and alert the individual that is valued by others. Express pride is a way to draw attention and also notify others that one deserves acceptance and a higher status in society. Conclusion do not forget what you think to the respectoestarbien.
lacoctelera.NET ell that pride leads us to a futile search to pretend that we are not, which leaves the person exhausted and frustrated and so can not produce love. Pride seduces us with the fear that if we do not stand above others and ourselves, we plunge in an unbearable loss of all value. The personal importance tends to justify the cruelty and the sense of superiority before others. To fade the pride is recommended: honest confrontation with oneself, recognizing each of attitudes which leads to the separation with God and therefore with our fellow human beings. * Different pcaginas above Web original author and source of the article.
