Every since I was a young child I have always been a very emotional person. I used to cry about everything. Now that I look back on it I really do not have the slightest clue of why it would happen t just would. I am extremely grateful that the older that I have gotten I have learned how to really control how I feel to a certain extent. One of the slides gave the definition of emotion as the functional reaction to a stimulus change. I never realized that being yelled at or punished for doing something wrong was a stimulus change but it actually is. its funny how something can affect us on the inside and we are able to show the world exactly how we are feeling through the expressions that we make with our face. I have been told that I have the craziest facial expressions and most of the time I do not even realize that I am even making a face to begin with. This all ties into how behavior is motivated by our emotions and making a physical facial expression or even acting out or being sweet is all behaviors that all come with us feeling some type of way about something.bject width="480" height="385">


  1. That was a very interesting video you posted. I never knew that most children look at a persons face in a t pattern to identify what emotions they are showing.

  2. I really like that you mention how emotionally you can be, i found myself wondering and trying to figure out why my emotions go up and down or have sudden mood swings or cry for no reason (main reason: being a woman)lol but I definitely found your post to be intriguing because I did not realize how a baby looks at a face and which areas they concentrate on the most to figure out the emotion the person may be having...this can be true when a baby sees their mother angry and yelling, they sense the face change becoming more stern and not as loving as when she is happy...good job on the post
