Spontaneous Emotional Communication and Social Biofeedback: A Cross-Cultural Study of Emotional Expression and Communication in Chinese and Taiwanese Students by Ross Buck( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Different cultures develop different rules of emotional expression and communication which may have important consequences within the culture and which may impose barriers to communication between cultures. A study was conducted to examine this issue. Emotionally-loaded color slides were shown to 44 college students from Taiwan and the People's Republic of China (prc) who were attending college in the United States. Subjects' facial and gestural responses were videotaped. Later, and with their permission, the videotaped sequences were observed by the same Chinese students and also by 20 American students who attempted to determine the kind of slide presented from the facial/gestural reactions. Results indicated that the sex difference in sending accuracy usually found in Western students (with females being more expressive) did not occur in Chinese students. The usual finding of female superiority in receiving ability was, however, also found in the Chinese subjects. The students from Taiwan showed significantly greater sending accuracy than did students from the prc, but there was no difference in receiving ability between these groups. There was no evidence that communication within a culture or group is more efficient than communication between cultures or groups in this data, and there was no evidence that cultural contact enhances spontaneous communication.

Left and Right Hemisphere Brain Functions and Symbolic Vs. Spontaneous Communication Processes by Ross Buck( Book )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Recent findings on the communicative functions of the left versus the right hemisphere of the brain may suggest that there is a distinction between the intentional use of symbols for the sending of specific messages or propositions (language, signing, pantomime) and spontaneous expressive behaviors that signal their meaning through a natural relationship with that which is signified. Recent research into the functions of the left and right cerebral hemispheres and the patterns of communicative deficit in patients suffering from brain damage suggests that the hemispheres play different roles in these communicative processes. The left hemisphere is particularly involved in the symbolic communication process, while the right hemisphere plays a special role in spontaneous communication. Damage to the left hemisphere in right handed people is associated with deficits in language expression and comprehension--the aphasias. Nonverbal communication is relatively intact in aphasic patients, however. While it is likely that the two hemispheres are both associated with either spontaneous or symbolic processes, it should be emphasized that the two systems are highly interactive, and serve to modify one another. One cannot be fully understood without the other. (Hth)

Emotion, Emotional Expression, and the Cognitive-Physiological Interaction: A Readout View by Ross Buck( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A basic tenet of this paper is that, from the time of the ancient Greeks, Western thought has distinguished between rational processes unique to humans and the processes governing animal behavior. A model of motivation, emotion, and the cognitive/physiological interaction that can be applied to both animals and humans is presented. The special implications of language are discussed, and emotion is defined. An argument is posited that language makes humans different in fundamental ways from animals, because it allows behavior to come under the control of principles of logic and reasoning that are mediated by language and that are functionally independent of biology. In addition, the materials suggest that with language comes social motivation, involving conformity and obedience to culturally patterned social rules. (Jac)

Is Dissonance Motivating? Relationships Between Cognitive Behaviors and Tension Measures During Aggression by Ross Buck( Book )
1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Dissonance theory implies that relationships should exist between dissonance-reducing behaviors and measures of tension. It is suggested that dissonance-reducing behavior should be positively correlated across subjects with initial tension but negatively correlated with tension after dissonance-reducing behaviors have occurred. Thirty-six male and 36 female subjects were told that they would administer intense shocks, mild shocks, or tones to an undeserving victim. Heart rate and skin conductance were measured when the subject first received these instructions and while he delivered the shocks or tones. Skin conductance showed increasing arousal with increasing injury, particularly among females. Dissonance-reducing behaviors were negatively correlated with post-experimental ratings of conflict, but no relationship was found between dissonance-reducing behaviors and physiological measures. References and tables are included. (Author)
Moral and reptilian charisma : their measurement and relationships with speaker nonverbal behaviors, communicator style, audience emotions and gender by Georgios Trianti( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A charisma measure based on Weber's theory was developed and tested. Three studies were conducted in order to assess whether charisma has one or more dimensions, and explore the extent to which charisma is a property of the leader, the audience, their relationship or the situation. In Study 1, ratings of speeches of well-known politicians yielded two factors. Moral charisma emphasizes pride in and respect for the leader's task and calling, whereas reptilian charisma involves the leader's emotional power, vitality, and vigor. In Study 2, Ps rated the most or least charismatic person they knew. In Study 3, coders rated 200 speech segments lasting ten seconds each. All three studies demonstrated that charisma has two dimensions, a moral and a reptilian. The studies further help understanding the diverse styles of various charismatic leaders and also of nonleaders. When judgments of charisma could be done, partitioning the variance of charisma indicated that it largely resides in the leader and his or her relationship with the audience
