    The Nonverbal Communication of Positive Emotions: An Emotion Family Approach.Disa A. Sauter - 2017 - Emotion Review 9 (3):222-234.
    This review provides an overview of the research on nonverbal expressions of positive emotions, organised into emotion families, that is, clusters sharing common characteristics. Epistemological positive emotions are found to have distinct, recognisable displays via vocal or facial cues, while the agency-approach positive emotions appear to be associated with recognisable visual, but not auditory, cues. Evidence is less strong for the prosocial emotions in any modality other than touch, and there is little support for distinct recognisable signals of the savouring (...)

    Can Perceivers Recognise Emotions From Spontaneous Expressions?Disa A. Sauter & Agneta H. Fischer - 2017 - Cognition and Emotion 32 (3):504-515.
    ABSTRACTPosed stimuli dominate the study of nonverbal communication of emotion, but concerns have been raised that the use of posed stimuli may inflate recognition accuracy relative to spontaneous expressions. Here, we compare recognition of emotions from spontaneous expressions with that of matched posed stimuli. Participants made forced-choice judgments about the expressed emotion and whether the expression was spontaneous, and rated expressions on intensity and prototypicality. Listeners were able to accurately infer emotions from both posed and spontaneous expressions, from auditory, visual, (...)

    Sense or Sensibility? Social Sharers’ Evaluations of Socio-Affective Vs. Cognitive Support in Response to Negative Emotions.Lisanne S. Pauw, Disa A. Sauter, Gerben A. van Kleef & Agneta H. Fischer - 2017 - Cognition and Emotion 32 (6):1247-1264.
    ABSTRACTWhen in emotional distress, people often turn to others for social support. A general distinction has been made between two types of support that are differentially effective: Whereas socio-affective support temporarily alleviates emotional distress, cognitive support may contribute to better long-term recovery. In the current studies, we examine what type of support individuals seek. We first confirmed in a pilot study that these two types of support can be reliably distinguished. Then, in Study 1, we experimentally tested participants’ support evaluations (...)

    Is There a Role for Language in Emotion Perception?Disa A. Sauter - 2018 - Emotion Review 10 (2):111-115.
    What is the relationship between language, emotion concepts, and perceptual categories? Here I compare the strong Whorfian view of linguistic relativity, which argues that language plays a necessary role in the perception of emotions, to the alternative view that different levels of processing are relatively independent and thus, that language does not play a foundational role in emotion perception. I examine neuropsychological studies that have tested strong claims of linguistic relativity, and discuss research on categorical perception of emotional expressions, where (...)

    I Hear You : Sharers’ Expressions and Listeners’ Inferences of the Need for Support in Response to Negative Emotions.Lisanne S. Pauw, Disa A. Sauter, Gerben A. van Kleef & Agneta H. Fischer - 2018 - Cognition and Emotion 33 (6):1129-1143.
    ABSTRACTWhen in emotional distress, people often turn to others for support. Paradoxically, even when people perceive social support to be beneficial, it often does not result in emotional recovery...

    Stop Crying! The Impact of Situational Demands on Interpersonal Emotion Regulation.Lisanne S. Pauw, Disa A. Sauter, Gerben A. van Kleef & Agneta H. Fischer - 2019 - Cognition and Emotion 33 (8):1587-1598.
    ABSTRACTCrying is a common response to emotional distress that elicits support from the environment. People may regulate another’s crying in several ways, such as by providing socio-affective suppo...

    Comment: Evidence for Basicness From Noise-Like Interjections of Emotions.Disa A. Sauter - 2014 - Emotion Review 6 (1):65-66.
    Goddard proposes a three-partite division of emotive interjections, which is helpful in delineating this heterogeneous set of phenomena. The distinction also explains inconsistencies between Goddard’s and previous findings: While his study demonstrates variability across languages in word-like primary interjections, previous work investigating noise-like interjections has found evidence for universality. Such cross-culturally consistent, categorical perception of emotional signals can be explained as emerging from bottom–up information without the need for top–down learning via language or interjections.

    Person Perception From Changing Emotional Expressions: Primacy, Recency, or Averaging Effect?Xia Fang, Gerben A. van Kleef & Disa A. Sauter - 2018 - Cognition and Emotion 32 (8):1597-1610.
    ABSTRACTDynamic changes in emotional expressions are a valuable source of information in social interactions. As the expressive behaviour of a person changes, the inferences drawn from the behaviour may also change. Here, we test the possibility that dynamic changes in emotional expressions affect person perception in terms of stable trait attributions. Across three experiments, we examined perceivers’ inferences about others’ personality traits from changing emotional expressions. Expressions changed from one emotion to another emotion, allowing us to disentangle potential primacy, recency, (...)

  11. What's Embodied in a Smile?Disa A. Sauter & Stephen C. Levinson - 2010 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 33 (6):457-458.
    Differentiation of the forms and functions of different smiles is needed, but they should be based on the empirical data on distinctions that senders and receivers make and on the physical cues that are employed. Such data would allow for a test of whether smiles can be differentiated using perceptual cues alone or whether mimicry or simulation are necessary.

  12. Perception and Evaluation of 23 Positive Emotions in Hong Kong and the Netherlands.Rui Sun, Wai Kai Hou, Bryant P. H. Hui, Nicolson Yat-Fan Siu, Tiarah Engels & Disa A. Sauter - 2021 - Frontiers in Psychology 12.
    Positive emotions are linked to numerous benefits, but not everyone appreciates the same kinds of positive emotional experiences. We examine how distinct positive emotions are perceived and whether individuals’ perceptions are linked to how societies evaluate those emotions. Participants from Hong Kong and Netherlands rated 23 positive emotions based on their individual perceptions and societal evaluations. We found that there were cultural differences in judgments about all six aspects of positive emotions; positivity, arousal, and social engagement predicted emotions being positively (...)
