How easy or hard is it to interpret others’ emotions

Psychology/Cross-Cultural Anthropology

Discussion Question 1:
How easy or hard is it to interpret others’ emotions? Is this significantly harder to do when you confront emotions from a culture different from your own? Why or why not, and can you identify any best practices for doing this accurately?

Discussion Question 2:
Do you have a sense of whether–and, if so, to what extent–time perception is primarily determined by cultural identify? This may not be the case, for example, if members of the same culture have greatly different styles of time-perception, or if time perception commonly varies for individuals at different times in their lives or when they confront different challenges.
