Attention to own and others' emotion

Previous work suggests that individual differences in attention to one's own emotion may impact the perception of other emotional stimuli. For example, individuals higher in attention to emotion may be more likely to either (a) differentiate among perceived emotion cues or (b) overemphasize the presence of perceived emotion cues. 

In two pre-registered studies, we tested whether attention to one's own emotion relates to the interpretation of emotional intensity or genuineness in other people's facial expressions. However, we did not find significant evidence that attention to emotion predicts differentiated or overemphasized ratings of emotional intensity and genuineness.
