* James-Lange View/ Organismic view
2. Perceptual influences on emotion
-evaluates it, subjective perception
-"not the end of the world"
-Appraisal view of emotions- you appraise what is happening & your subjective perception counts the most
3. Social influences on emotion
>Interactive view of emotions:
-we learn how to feel from other people/ social interaction
-it's through social interactions that we learn how to feel
>Feeling/ Framing rules
-rules that tell us which emotions are appropriate to the situation
*the pinch: discrepancy you feel when you're not feeling what you think is the right emotion
ex: laughing at a funeral, laughing when something bad happens to someone you don't like
-emotion work refers to our efforts to generate what we think are the right emotions for the situation through primary avenues:
1) we talk to ourselves (self-talk)
2) we talk to our friends
-Success not always guaranteed but we try
