New Study Reports Babies Make Quick Judgments About Adults’ Anger
As adults, we make quick decisions about people’s personalities. If someone starts an argument with a bus driver, we assume that they’re confrontational. If someone holds a door open for an eldery man, we assume that they’re kind. Our ability to discern negative traits is especially keen. Whether those assumptions reflect who that person really is, is not so clear. Still, we unconsciously make note of their actions and categorize them based on those observations.
