When a woman’s face freezes and a man cries, he gets a new one.
In fact, the two behaviours are linked, a study has found.
Researchers looked at facial frozen images of men and women in different parts of New Zealand.
They found they both showed signs of emotional attachment to their facial frozen image, although the women’s emotion was more intense than the men’s.
The study found the men and the women were more likely to express warmth and comfort to each other in their frozen facial expressions.
It’s not known why women react more strongly to their frozen images than men.
The findings were published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General.
“What we found is that both women and men experience a sense of attachment to a frozen image of themselves, as well as to their friends, family and even other faces in the world,” study co-author Dr Michelle Mathers, from the University of Auckland, said.
“It was interesting to find that the women did not feel like their faces were as ’emotionally close’ to the image as the men did.”
When we looked at the data, we found that the difference between the women and the men was in the degree of warmth and warmthness they expressed.
“They also felt a greater emotional connection to the faces.”
Women were more concerned about how they looked in their own frozen image than men, and also had less attachment to friends and family members than men did, the researchers found.
Dr Mather and her colleagues asked women to freeze their faces in front of a computer screen for five minutes, after which the images were examined.
After the five minutes of images, they asked the women to evaluate how happy they felt, how happy the men were, and how they felt about the faces.
They found that women felt more connected to their faces than men to the images they had been frozen with.
“We found that when a woman was viewing her own image, she felt more like she was feeling attachment to her own face than she did when she was watching the men, but when she saw a man, she did not think the men felt the same,” Dr Mather said.
“It’s possible that women are able to feel emotions and emotions are connected to the face that they are seeing.”
The study also found that men who were emotionally attached to their face were more sensitive to others’ emotions, including those of others around them.
“The men were more able to understand that other people had feelings, emotions and reactions that they did not understand, and that this meant they were able to make decisions,” Dr Lila Gee, a research fellow in the Department of Psychology at the University at Buffalo, said in a statement.
“So, it could be that they feel more connected emotionally to their own emotions.”‘
I feel like a human being’The study showed that the men in the study were more emotional than the women, but they were also more able than the other men to interpret the emotions of other people.
Dr Gee said the findings suggest the two women are in fact more similar than one might think.
“I think that men are able in some ways to interpret their own emotional state, but women can interpret it in a more universal way,” Dr Gee explained.
“And that’s interesting, because women can’t process emotions that are as deep as men do, so I think that perhaps this makes sense.”
“And, of course, there’s a lot of evidence that says that women can feel emotional attachments to others, so that could explain this, but we still need more studies to really know exactly what that is.”‘
It was all about the feeling’For Dr Mee, the study was very surprising.
“Women tend to be more attuned to their emotions, but that may not always translate to what men are feeling,” she said.
The study is part of a larger effort to understand the nature of emotional communication in men and to discover what happens to the facial expressions when the person is in the same situation.
Dr Siegel said she hopes to find out more about how men’s and women’s facial expressions change over time.
“In terms of how emotions change over the course of the day, there may be some things that are very stable over the day and then there may also be things that shift throughout the day,” she explained.
Dr Gree said more research would be needed to understand what it is about the people’s facial expression that leads to a certain kind of emotional connection.
“There’s a little bit of an overlap between what happens with men and what happens in women,” she added.
