SANDRINE GIL and SYLVIE DROIT-VOLET THE TEMPORAL DYNAMIC OF THE SOCIAL interplay AND THE function OF facial features: INTRODUCATION The effectiveness of social interplay customarily rests at the skill of 2 interlocutors to percentage time; to coordinate, for instance, their cost of speech; or to respond to the requests of 1 or the opposite at a suitable second, neither too early nor too overdue. Social interplay therefore suits right into a temporal dynamic, which calls for of every person the uninterrupted processing of temporal details (Chambon, Droit-Volet, & Niedenthal, 2008; Chambon, Gil, Niedenthal, & Droit-Volet, 2005; Droit-Volet & Gil, 2009; Droit-Volet & Meck, 2007). Our goal is to check this social time, extra accurately, time conception, in social interactions. in the framework of social interactions, facial expressions offer information regarding the feelings and the intentions of others (Keltner & Haidt, 2001; Keltner & Kring, 1998; Russell & Fernandez-Dols, 1997). Facial expressions therefore exhibit successfully very important indices for realizing the nation of the others and for inferences relating to motion readiness (Darwin, 1872/1998; Ekman, 1982, 1999; Frijda, 1986; Ledoux, 1996). The query is: Does our notion of time switch with the conception of assorted facial expressions? for instance, does time appear to go extra slowly within the presence of an offended individual than within the presence of an individual now not expressing any specific emotion? to respond to this query, we've got carried out a sequence of experiments reading the effect of the notion of facial expressions on time belief. We therefore current in the beginning the theoretical framework, then the strategy used, and at last the most effects came across. THE PROCESSING OF TEMPORAL details relies ON AN inner CLOCK there's significant facts that people, like all different animals, have an inner mechanism for size of time, working like a real clock.
