Since emotional expression is an important form if
communication, recognizing emotion in others is essential for
social living. In judging anothers emotions, one might use
various cues: the persons stated feelings, behavior, facial
expressions, gestures, voice, posture, and so forth, or certain
physiological changes. These four indexes do not always agree,
however, nor are people consistent in the way they express
their emotions from time to time. Most research indicates that
joy and pain are easiest to judge from expressive cues, fear
and sadness more difficult while pity and suspicion are more
difficult still.

expressing emotion seem to be universal and instinctive (as
