Emotions and Group Dynamics

In groups, the people who express their emotions most vigorously are likely to spread their feelings to others.  This is related to "mirror neurons," which I have just learned about after reading this article.  Whether in the office, the classroom, or any other social setting, we are likely to be influenced by the most expressive emotions that surround us.  So, as teachers and parents, we want positive emotions to dominate our environments.
