|Abstract:||Emotional contagion has been defined as "the tendency to automatically mimic and synchronize expressions, vocalizations, postures, and movements with those of another person's and, consequently, to converge emotionally" (Hatfield, Cacioppo, & Rapson, 1994, p. 5). Study 1 explores the influence of personality on emotional contagion. Specifically, I propose that people's susceptibility to emotional contagion will be affected by their stable disposition towards happiness/sadness. Study 2 investigates the impact of a person's short-term (primed) mood on his or her susceptibility to emotional contagion. Two competing theoretical traditions will be compared to investigate just how mood--both stable and short-term--affects contagion.|
