Re: The Other Side of Emotions

This is definetly different, but in a good way. When you think of heroism you usually think all good things of that person, not the bad side of it. This is true for all the different points, and it gives you something to think about. Ussually I just want to stay to the positive side of things but their are negatives. I somewhat agree with all of these points even though I don't like to think of it that way.

This is very interesting. Generally when it comes to emotions you tend to think of them as either good or bad and don't look at the other side of things. Especially with emotions such as anger or heroism people can be very biased in thinking. Personally I agree with most of these points because I believe that there are two side to everything and there is definitely such thing as to much of one good (or bad) thing.

Thanks Theresa! Probably won't end up writing thrash metal, but that would be another interesting project!

Yeah - this is a nice summary of the idea, Theresa. You're right, it is normally something people don't consider, yet such a big part of why people enjoy characters in movies so much.

I agree that not many people give thought to this question. Music is so powerful to setting a mood or theme but is also something that can be easily ignored, especially in movies because your focus is on the graphics. What many people may not realize, is that the graphics would not portray the same emotions without the music that accompanies it.

Re: Orca Whale Conservation

Nice topic! I've always found Orcas to be interesting sea animals (although I don't know much about them). many different cultures have legends of the killer whale, it might be interesting to look into those. I look forward to your project and what you find out.
Comment

Re: Orca Whale Conservation

This topic is very intriguing! I like how your question relates to the human contact with the killer whale, since the human/killer whale relationship shapes the future of this species. I look forward to your future research.

Do you plan on finishing this whole project in the summer or taking it into next year as well?
Comment

Re: My Plan: Evolutionary Biology

I am extremely unsure of the time frame of this project. I plan to sort of go at it and after the first one see how long it took. After that, I should be able to accurately plan out the time frame of the rest.

Awesome topic! You have a very well laid out plan! Is your entire project about anger, or are you going to do other emotions too?

Re: My Plan: Evolutionary Biology

Super excited for your project!!! do you what you will be doing for the other 3 parts?

Re: My Plan: Evolutionary Biology

I'll be doing two other emotions/behaviours - Curiosity and Trust. But those are a long ways away

Good definition. Now proceed and research on the vulnerable persons/gender, effects, and control mechanisms/management of the same.

Re: Anger?

Good definition! If you have room you could add how anger causes people/animals to react to situations.

Yep! I like that idea. I'm currently working on a more in-depth definition, and I definitely want to include that. Thanks )))))))

I find when I use colour in my drawings that if I want to do a background in red, a darker red or a burgundy really makes the subject stand out, as it's not a very loud or obnoxious shade. I've never really thought of different shades connotating different shapes though! Interesting.

Re: Cultural/Biological Differences in Gender

Wow! Great idea! it never really occurred to me that guys could feel emotions differently. I look forward your project.

Re: Cultural/Biological Differences in Gender

Delaney Thank you so much for showing your interest at my inquiry question, it means a lot to me! I am also very exciting to find out what I will discover from this project. As I dig into this topic I find out male and female also learn in very different ways and that heavily effect their behavior and emotions, so I will also add that part to my project and the plan which I will soon post.

Re: Cultural/Biological Differences in Gender

This is an awesome idea, one I think definitely needs to be explored! I think it's really interesting how you're looking at it culturally, not just biologically, as many cultures believe different things thus reacting to different events as they occur.
Comment

Re: Cultural/Biological Differences in Gender

Thank you so much! I totally agree with you Taryn. The reason I pick culture and biology to make the comparison is because I think this two things are the most impotent factor that make up human. I think it will be very interesting to find out how much of the difference is simply just what people label each other as, and how much of it is by biology, which are the thing that us people have no contour over at.

Re: Audio-Visual Stimuli and Emotion

Bryn Hutchinson (Alumni) ·
So, I suppose, given your two conclusions, is it reasonable to ask why? Do scientists, psychologists, neurologists, etc. know why higher pitches, higher frequencies result in happier moods, happier feelings? I mean, it seems like a logical conclusion, when you feel happy, you feel 'higher'; a definition of 'ecstatic' is literally feeling on top of the world, or, rather high up at least. Just thought it might be a logical extension onto your project.

Re: Audio-Visual Stimuli and Emotion

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
This makes me think of how much more our senses can be 'immersed' per say into technology/entertainment. Taking a look at virtual reality 360 films. http://www.vrcircle.com/page/v...ty-360-degree-movies I think they could possibly revolutionize film. Film really hasn't made any large improvements in the past decade. We are still watching a story unfold through a window. What if we were inside the space? Do you think that experiencing different forms of reality is inhibitive of 'normal' life?

Re: Sept 16, 2017: Emotions in Decisions Part 1: Anger

Hello am very much interested with your topic which you are researching about emotions.many people in the world think that emotions can never be controlled.therefore emotions affect everybody even though you are young.you are also supposed to tell us the effects that emotions bring people today. am now looking forward on next research. good luck.

Re: Research round #3(Cycle 4)- Resiliency

Hey Rhea! Great post! Have you ever thought about looking into how people in this generation are becoming, in some ways, less resilient due to minimal interaction with each other? Because of social media, people are becoming much more sensitive, but desensitized at the same time. It's a real problem, and I think it'd be a cool thing for you to talk about! (Maybe next year though, since this was your last post) Good luck!

Re: Research round #3(Cycle 4)- Resiliency

Hi Rhea, This was a very interesting post. I like how you decided to use your final post to bust a lot of the myths about this often misunderstood concept. I have often heard that resilient people often isolate themselves from others, but you have shown that this is usually not true. If you are interested, perhaps something you could look into is how the average idea of resiliency is changing in our society. For example, if you have a new generation of mostly resilient people, then the older...

Re: Research #3 (Cycle 2) - How Might Concussions Affect Teen's Brain Development?

This is very interesting! One of my friends had a concussion a few years ago and I think her personality changed a little too. She became more shy than she was, and rarely talked to people she didn't know. She also seemed a little depressed right after she got the concussion, I think it was because she frustrated because of what happened. I'm looking forward to what you find next, good luck!

Re: Research #3 (Cycle 2) - How Might Concussions Affect Teen's Brain Development?

Hey Lauren! This is a very interesting round of research! It's kind of scary to think about how our identities and our personalities can be altered so drastically and so suddenly by an injury as common as a concussion. Great job! Here's a link which I hope will help with your future research: - http://www.brainline.org/landi...avioralsymptoms.html Good luck!

It is quit encouraging that you are undertaking a research on how emotionally people with disabilities are affected.It seems to be difficult to care out the research but I hope you will manage.I may only assist you by advising you to do more interviews on people and close people of the disabled.

Re: Cycle #3 - Metamorphosis - How are people with developmental disabilities/disorders affected emotionally?

Hey Anika! This research has been so fascinating to read and it is soooo important! You mentioned that you had trouble finding information on a global scale which is crazy! There are people all over the world, of every race and culture, who have developmental disabilities and are not receiving the support and understanding that they need. I think solving any problem starts with knowledge. If people learn about and understand the issues, the path to solving these problems begins being paved.

Re: Cycle #3 - Research Round #3 - How are people with developmental disabilities/disorders affected emotionally?

Hi Anika, It is incredibly sad that when society decides something is too hard to understand or too different they hide it away and pretend it doesn't exist instead of dealing with it. I love how in depth you went into each country, very well done. Good Luck with your research!

Hi Anika,great research you have here.I like the way you come about in arranging your work,it is understandable to many.The greatest of all is how you spear head the agenda without shying off.It is bitter seen even today people have not fully accepted the disable,(be it mentally or physically disabled)they are ashamed of them.What we fail to understand is that some of them are twice as good as their 'able' counterparts. Looking forward for more from you,you have such an inspiring research.

Re: Cycle #3 - Research Round #1 - How are people with developmental disabilities/disorders affected emotionally?

Hey Anika, The research that you did is truly astonishing. I can tell how close this topic is to your heart just by reading it. Just a thought for your future posts: maybe you can research exactly how far scientists have gone to find the cause of learning disabilities. Anyways, I'm really looking forward to reading your future posts! Good luck! I found a video that might be helpful: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uhGXJbMUZfw

Re: Cycle #3 - Research Round #1 - How are people with developmental disabilities/disorders affected emotionally?

Hey Anika, This round of research was really in-depth! This is just my personal opinion, so I can't wait to see what you find, but a lot of people when associating with people with developmental disorders aren't conscious enough to really realize how their words may impact the person. There are many different symptoms, but if someone is more sensitive, they may end up going through emotional trauma, etc. and I think your topic will be really important to read because although it's a very...

Re: Research round 2 - How does music affect people?

Jim Liu (Charles Best) ·
Hey Jessica! Interesting information you may have there and they very well are true because those are some experimental things you can do just in your life easily! But one thing that also happens is that music can not only move your feelings according to the music. But the music being something of a indicator, a reminder of events and feelings at the moment which can even if the music was a happy thing, it could remind you of something really sad. So maybe look into this relation here if you...
