Unmasking our true emotions!

emotional mask

In an experimental study conducted in Germany, wearing the mask may make it difficult to analyse a person’s emotions. There are confusions, mostly pronounced in the case of misinterpreting disgusted faces as being angry plus assessing many other emotions (e.g., happy, sad, and angry) as neutral.

While the whole world adopts the mask in the current COVID era, compensatory actions that can keep social interaction effective (e.g., body language, gesture, and verbal communication), can still provide effective communication of emotion, even when relevant visual information is crucially reduced.
