Humans Are Exquisitely Sensitive To Context, Says a Psychologist

A psychologist of Northeastern University and Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard School of Medicine, Lisa Feldman Barrett, notified: "Humans are exquisitely sensitive to context, and that can vary dramatically shape what is seen in a face".

The psychologist made the statement while commenting on the findings of a latest research suggesting that facial-emotional discernment has a great influence on a number of contexts such as theoretical information as well as sense stimuli.

Besides, there are a number of eye-tracking researches to depict that humans are likely to concentrate on diverse prominent facial features and insisted that language plays a role to improve facial impressions.

In addition, there are a number of eye-tracking experiments to depict that humans consider different prominent facial characteristics, having an influence from a number of factors as well.

In addition, Barrett explained that a majority of humans have identical or almost similar psychology regardless of their cultural differences. Simultaneously, the expert has added that this common property plays a role in helping people to understand emotions mutually, at times people with common culture and even similar facial structure lack this ability.

The findings were concluded from the outcome of several studies disproving existence of around 6-10 basic emotions.
