Join Professor Louise Phillips, from the School of Psychology, on Thursday 9 September from 4pm (BST) as she discusses generational differences in interpreting social cues.
We are constantly decoding cues from the faces, voices and bodies of other people to work out what they feel and what their intentions might be. Recent research indicates that there are differences between younger and older adults in how they interpret these social cues. There are age differences in using information from the eyes to share attention and understand emotions. Understanding someone else’s intentions (for example when they are being sarcastic) also changes with age, and is influenced by culture. These age differences have implications for intergenerational communication in a world where generations are increasingly divided.
