(NPR)   New study maps emotions with body heat, and it seems oddly fitting that the feeling of shame makes you look like Spider-Man   (npr.org) divider line 39

I'm not seeing "Drunk" or "Horny" in there anywhere...

And Happiness kind of looks like Ironman.

With great shame, comes great Peter Parker-ability.

Bonus points for sadness looking similar to Spiderman 2099.

Anxiety = fear ?

What does this have to do with body heat? TFA makes it sound like they just asked people to draw these.
 
2013-12-31 01:08:17 AM
People drew maps of where they felt heat? Is that, umm, scientific?  Why not actually use thermal imaging, unless that would produce unwanted results.  Like, people's perception of warmth may not mean it's actually warmer.

/or maybe not

I was trying to see other superheroes, but all I noticed were that anger and love look really similar.


"Bitter and dumb, you're my sugarplum
you're awful, I love you..."

...which is the opposite of love

RTFA, Subby.  Or at least the caption:  "People drew maps of body locations where they feel basic emotions (top row) and more complex ones (bottom row). Hot colors show regions that people say are stimulated during the emotion. Cool colors indicate deactivated areas. "

Came here to say the same thing - it's not like we lack the technology (it's not even expensive anymore).

It's interesting that people from different cultures describe it the same way, but I'd love to see actual data.

Love has quite the hot spot in the crotch region. I'm just disappointed these aren't actual thermal images, just a study of opinions mapped like thermal images.

Nah, anger and pride are closer

Heh, they look the same, except in love you get hot in your crotch.

I'll buy that for a dollar


/Love is still anger with crotchflames
 
2013-12-31 01:35:27 AM
Also fitting, surprise looks like a ninja.

I'll buy that

Then we can get into the meat of what love is, as a distinct and separate emotion to (though affected by) infatuation

I'm intrigued by the finding that people feel neutral emotional states in their armpits.

/my crotch is blue with contempt for this study's methodology

I was thinking the same thing as you guys.  This seems more like a social experiment than a physiological one.  I doubt that's going to stop reporters and facebook from spreading it around like it  is a physiological experiment.

And regarding the love one:

No, no it doesn't.
Art class and and some simplistic logic to create heat maps does not a scientific study make.

Take a close look at the image for "love". Especially the brightly-lit part that's not the chest.

That's hott!

My entire body is warm due to your blue crotch joke.

Shouldn't that be the other way around?

I'm not sure I see any shame whatsoever in that picture.

I see it as, fear + depression = anxiety

Why is 'douchbaggery' not described? I would imagine balled fists of red and seething eye-sockets.

Hey now, I actually liked Spider-man 2099. Much better than Scarlet Spider at least.

Look out! Here comes the Spider-Shame.
 
2014-01-01 09:37:10 AM
I feel like we're tossing around the phrase 'study' a little too easily these days.

'We asked a bunch of people where they FEEL things and drew it' sounds like something a six year old would do.
