Poster #139: Alyssa Phillips – Guilt and Shame: Does Emotion Affect Expressive Reluctance?

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Monisha Pasupathi

Expressive reluctance (ER) occurs when an individual feels an emotion, but for whatever reason decides not to express it. ER levels vary from person to person, but for this study, we will test if ER levels vary depending on what emotion is being expressed. Participants wrote two narratives: one about a time when they felt guilty and one about a time when they felt ashamed. We expect that ER levels will be higher in shame narratives because individuals will want to hide their emotions.
