emotions, mimic expression, social recognition



The article presents definition of emotional states and the problem of a mimic expression of emotions, which is very important for social relations. It discusses the determinants of expression, the cultural rules of regulating and revealing emotional states, and the importance of the situational context for the reception of a mimic expression. Moreover, a complex cognitive process connected with reading the emotional states of others was presented, in which the recipient makes inferences about the social world, the way the observed person perceives the world, as well as his/her properties and attributes.
