The evidence of experience #30:
We think and remember emotions as feelings that we experience alone but maybe they are only what we share or that are given to us by those around us. Emotions are transmissible: we feel a strong emotion and what we feel can shift across to those around us. We constantly share and absorb emotions and float in this sensitive, yet invisible cultural soup. Children express emotions without restraint; early in life they also learn to read and assume the emotional atmosphere around them. Like viral infections, emotions can heat up and inflame already primed situations.
