There is consensus among different emotion theories that one component of an emotional response is behavior, it might be in facial expressions, voice qualities, gestures, body postures, or instrumental behaviors. What are these expressions and how are these behavioral expressions decoded by others? Sometimes emotion responses are regulated to hide emotions for others and this can affect health.
