Most investigators agree that certain facial expressions suggest the same emotions in all people.
Moreover, people in various cultures acknowledge the emotions manifested by the facial expressions. In classic analysis Paul Ekman took photographs of people exhibiting the emotions of anger, disgust, fear, happiness, and sadness. He then asked people around the world to point what emotions were being depicted in them. Those queried ranged from European school students to members of the Fore, a tribe that dwells in the New Guinea highlands. All groups, including the Fore, who had almost no contact with Western culture, agreed on the portrayed emotions. The Fore also displayed familiar facial expressions once asked how they would respond if they were the characters in stories that called for basic emotional responses.Ekman and his colleagues more recently obtained similar results in a study of ten cultures in which participants were permitted to report that multiple emotions were shown by facial expressions. The participants typically agreed on which 2 feelings were being shown and which emotion was more intense.
