Emotional intelligence is the ability to process information about one’s own emotions and the emotions of others. It involves perceiving emotions, understanding emotions, managing emotions and using emotions in thought processes and in other activities. Emotion understanding is the cognitive activity of using emotions to infer why an agent is in an(More)
According to Moral Foundations Theory, people endorse " individualizing " foundations (Harm/care, Fairness/reciprocity) or " binding " foundations (Ingroup/loyalty, Authority/respect, Purity/sanctity) to varying degrees. As societies with higher pathogen prevalence have been found to exhibit more pronounced antipathogen psychological tendencies and cultural(More)
Across four studies, the current paper demonstrates that smiles are associated with lower social status. Moreover, the association between smiles and lower status appears in the psychology of observers and generalizes across two forms of status: prestige and dominance. In the first study, faces of fashion models representing less prestigious apparel brands(More)
Assessing the visual realism of images is increasingly becoming an essential aspect of fields ranging from computer graphics (CG) rendering to photo manipulation. In this paper we systematically evaluate factors underlying human perception of visual realism and use that information to create an automated assessment of visual realism. We make the following(More)
While efforts to create realistic images have generated break-throughs in computer graphics modeling, there has been little research to date on factors causing people to perceive images as real versus computer-generated (CG). The motivation of the current experiment is to begin investigating such factors. We showed both computer-graphics experts and(More)
In the precision farming (PF) literature on innovation activities, it becomes apparent that only individual aspects of the entire PF innovation process chain are considered, namely, the knowledge transfer and the adoption of PF applications. Therefore, this study seeks to analyze the innovation mechanisms in the entire PF innovation process chain. The paper(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: Behavioral immune system Life expectancy Life-history theory Moral foundations Morality Pathogen prevalence Teenage birth rate This study evaluated the extent to which predictions derived from several theories could account for variability in human moral values across US states. We investigated moral values as conceptualized(More)
Computer-generated (CG) face images are common in video games, advertisements, and other media. CG faces vary in their degree of realism, a factor that impacts viewer reactions. Therefore, efficient control of visual realism of face images is important. Efficient control is enabled by a deep understanding of visual realism perception: the extent to which(More)
In many sub-fields, researchers collect datasets of human ground truth that are used to create a new algorithm. For example, in research on image perception, datasets have been collected for topics such as what makes an image aesthetic or memorable. Despite high costs for human data collection, datasets are infrequently reused beyond their own fields of(More)
