Topic: Suppress for success - When hiding positive emotion can help you win friends and influence people

Is it better to express or suppress positive emotion? Most people would agree that the answer to this question is obvious: positive emotion should be expressed and not suppressed. These assumptions have dominated the emotion regulation literature and shaped modern understanding of how people should regulate their emotions for personal and social benefit. As a result, the general view of positive emotion is “the more the better.” But what happens when the positive emotions that usually bond us with other people actually harm social relations? I will present a range of research exploring the social contexts in which it is better to suppress the expression of positive emotion.

Katie is a Postdoctoral Fellow in and Global Scholar alumna with the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. In June, she will begin a DECRA fellowship in the School of Psychology.
