what have you learned about the influence of gender and emotion
The expression and interpretation of emotions play an important part in human interactions. The processes involved in the encoding and decoding of emotional expressions have been the subject of numerous studies. [ Specifically, the face is a very important area and a channel of nonverbal communication that plays a significant role in human emotions. More than any other body part, the face
instantaneously communicates, readily reveals, and exhibits the emotional states. The face is a rich source of information for human behavior. Facial displays not only indicate emotion, but also regulate interpersonal behavior and signal communicative intent. The main parts of the face that are involved in the nonverbal communication are as follows: 1) Lip movements 2) Lifting / shrinking the cheeks 3) Eye brows & their movements 4) Eyelids and their movements One could view and focus on these different areas of the face and come to conclusions in regard to some emotions. Thus, the ultimate aim of linking an area of the face with specified emotion or emotions is to aid communication, which in turn modifies the words spoken. They often permit the depiction of meaning that may be difficult or impossible to convey in words. Facial areas may differ in terms of their relative involvements of affect-specific components and non-affective movements. Particularly, positively affective situations are most easily judged from the raising brows and cheeks whereas sadness is best judged from the eyes and eyelids area. ]

what have you learned about the influence of gender and emotion
Weegy: Women are naturally more emotional, sensitive, sympathetic, empathetic. [ Men are naturally more objective, mathematical, etc. It's why you see more women teachers, therapists, and guidance counselors. And you see more men engineers, etc. It's Yin/Yang. Yin is feminine, emotions, art. Yang is masculine, math, medicine. Example where gender might influence emotions: the ABORTION argument. Many women think it is the women's choice, that it is ultimately up to the women, the carrier of the child, whether she is responsible enough to care for it. Many men think that, even if the women is not responsible enough, that she can give it up for adoption or something. I heard the argument one time, my friend's mom aborted her baby because it was going to be born with a horrible disease, where its spine was horrible disfigured, and it was going to either live an awful life, or die. She brought this up in a class discussion. Most of the girls think that she did the right thing. While some guys said things like, "Oh! Well, she could have carried it around for 9 moths!" We wanted to slap him so bad. He doesn't know about the mental, emotional, and physical hardships of carrying a baby you know you can never have. Keep in mind she loved it, and it was a planned pregnancy. ] (More)
