Social Cognition Theory
holds that portions of an
individual's knowledge acquisition can be directly related to observing
others within the context of social interactions, experiences, and outside
media influences. The theory states that when people observe a model
performing a behavior and the consequences of that behavior, they remember
the sequence of events and use this information to guide subsequent
behaviors. Observing a model can also prompt the viewer to engage in
behavior they already learned. In other words, people do not learn new
behaviors solely by trying them and either succeeding or failing, but
rather, the survival of humanity is dependent upon the replication of the
actions of others. Depending on whether people are rewarded or punished
for their behavior and the outcome of the behavior, the observer may
choose to replicate behavior modeled. Media provides models for a vast
array of people in many different environmental settings.

religions and human cultures. The maxim may appear as either a positive or
negative injunction governing conduct: One should treat others as one

should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated
(negative or prohibitive form). What you wish upon others, you wish upon

of the muscles beneath the skin of the face. According to one set of
controversial theories, these movements convey the emotional state of an
individual to observers

communication. They are a primary means of conveying social information
between humans, but they also occur in most other mammals and some other
animal species. (facial cues).

The fusiform face area: a cortical region specialized
for the perception of faces
is a brief, involuntary facial expression
shown on the face of humans according to emotions experienced. They
usually occur in high-stakes situations, where people have something to
lose or gain. Microexpressions occur when a person is consciously trying
to conceal all signs of how they are feeling, or when a person does not
consciously know how they are feeling.] Unlike regular facial expressions,
it is difficult/impossible to hide microexpression reactions.
Microexpressions cannot be controlled as they happen in a fraction of a
second, but it is possible to capture someone's expressions with a high
speed camera and replay them at much slower speeds. Microexpressions
express the seven universal emotions: disgust, anger, fear, sadness,
happiness, contempt, and surprise. Nevertheless, in the 1990s, Paul Ekman
expanded his list of emotions, including a range of positive and negative
emotions not all of which are encoded in facial muscles. These emotions
are amusement, embarrassment, anxiety, guilt, pride, relief, contentment,
pleasure, and shame. They are very brief in duration, lasting only 1⁄25
to 1⁄15 of a second.

is an individual's understanding and
interpretation of the face, particularly the human face, especially in
relation to the associated information processing in the brain. The

is an act of communication in which human beings
intentionally make their presence known to each other, to show attention
to, and to suggest a type of relationship (usually cordial) or social
status (formal or informal) between individuals or groups of people coming
in contact with each other. Greetings sometimes are used just prior to a
conversation or to greet in passing, such as on a sidewalk or trail. While
greeting customs are highly culture and situation-specific and may change
within a culture depending on social status and relationship, they exist
in all known human cultures. Greetings can be expressed both audibly and
physically, and often involve a combination of the two. This topic
excludes military and ceremonial salutes but includes rituals other than
gestures. A greeting, or salutation, can also be expressed in written
communications, such as letters and emails. Some epochs and cultures have
had very elaborate greeting rituals, for example, greeting of a sovereign.
Conversely, secret societies have often furtive or arcane greeting
gestures and rituals, such as a secret handshake, which allow members to
recognize each other. In some languages and cultures, the same word or
gesture is used as both greeting and farewell. Examples are "Good day" in
English, "As-Salamualaikum" in Arabic, "Aloha" in Hawaiian, "Shalom" in
Hebrew, "Namaste" in Hindi and "Ciao" in Italian. The bow and handshake
are also used for both greeting and leave taking.

the action associated with that event, and performing an action activates
the associated perceptual event.
