Fair or unfair? Facial cues influence how social exclusion is judged

first_imgLinkedIn Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Pinterest Sharecenter_img Whether uninvolved observers view social exclusion as morally justified or not can be very important for the victim as a possible intervention depends on that judgment. Making such a moral judgment, however, is often difficult and time consuming, which is why observers revert to relatively superficial indicators for guidance. One such indicator is the face of the excluded person.In several studies, the team of psychologists from the University of Basel presented different male faces to a total of 480 participants. The facial characteristics had previously been altered using a recently developed method for facial manipulation. The portraits were manipulated to appear warm or cold and competent or incompetent. The participants looked at each portrait for two seconds before spontaneously deciding how acceptable they thought it was for a group to exclude this person.More protection for warm and incompetent looking peopleIn all studies, participants found it more acceptable to socially exclude people whose faces looked cold and incompetent. However, exclusion was found least acceptable when those excluded looked warm and incompetent. A possible explanation for this could be that these people are often perceived as especially in need of protection and therefore excluding them from a group would be particularly cruel, says lead researcher Dr. Selma Rudert from the Center of Social Psychology at the University of Basel.Earlier studies have shown that humans have very clear-cut ideas of what a warm or cold person looks like. However, there is no evidence for any relation between facial features and personality traits. In other words: Although appearances are deceptive, individuals let them guide their judgment. The perceived warmth and competence in a person’s face play an especially important role in this judgment.Objectivity would be important“Our results suggest that the first impression a person makes can also influence moral judgments that would actually call for objectivity”, explains Rudert. These impressions can have far-reaching consequences for how people behave in social exclusion situations: “It is conceivable that a cold and incompetent looking victim of exclusion would get less support or, in the worst case, bystanders may even actively join the ostracizing group – all based on one glance at the face of the victim.” People are often excluded from social groups. As researchers from the University of Basel in Switzerland report in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, whether uninvolved observers find this acceptable or not may depend on the facial appearances of those excluded. The exclusion of cold and incompetent looking people is more likely to be accepted.Social exclusion – be it at school, work or among friends – is usually a painful experience for those affected. This behavior also often has a considerable effect on third-party observers: Bullying and ostracism with the aim to hurt the victims are seen as particularly unfair and morally unacceptable. However, in some cases, social exclusion is also perceived as justified. Groups are, for example, more likely to ostracize people who cause trouble or arguments in order to restore the harmony in their group.Quick moral judgment Emaillast_img read more

Jazz will have their hands full with ‘best team in the league’ Rockets tonight

first_img Rodney Hood out, Raul Neto probable for Utah Jazz vs. Houston Rockets on Thursday night Related SALT LAKE CITY — Coach Quin Snyder calls his Thursday night opponent, the Houston Rockets, “arguably the best team in the league.” He also knows his team was blasted by the Rockets by 27 points when the two teams played earlier this season in Houston.So what does he expect from tonight’s game?“Any time you play that level of team, you’ve got to be pretty good,” he said.The Jazz will have to be very good to keep up with the Rockets, especially considering they are still short-handed with Rodney Hood missing his sixth straight game with soreness in his left ankle and Joe Johnson still out with his wrist injury. At least the Jazz get Raul Neto back after his missed three of the last four games.Snyder believes his team has improved since the Nov. 5 game in Houston when the Rockets prevailed 137-110 and the Jazz allowed the most points by far this season.“Hopefully that means we play better,” Snyder said. “We’ve been competitive with them before, our team can’t forget that, and we don’t need to forget they drilled us. There’s a balance there.”The Rockets are coming in on a seven-game winning streak winning by an average of 21 points. The Jazz won six in a row before losing Tuesday night in Oklahoma City.last_img read more
