2/23/2016  ● As we have been discussing, emotions are both individual and social constructs.  Meaning that, emotions are interpreted by the individual himself, but the way he interprets  those emotions, are dependant upon how he is socialized (through his culture)  ● Freud: 2 capacities of maturity  ○ Love  ○ Work  ● Furthermore, because interpretation of emotions are dependant on social interaction, in  this lecture, we discuss how that interpretation, relates to marriage  ○ Men and women, are socialized to respond to their emotions in different and  certain ways  ■ While women are reared to express their emotions in rational manners,  men are taught to repress them (acceptable to show anger)   ● Men are taught to be direct and emphasize competition  ○ Thus within marriage, communication is gendered  ■ Whereas women are not bothered by arguments and therefore engage  (fight) in them, men tend to withdraw i.e­shutdown (flight)  ■ Women are more likely to focus on the relationship whereas men are  more likely to focus on tactions of the relationship ­such as going to a  football game vs talk   ■ Men are more likely to become emotionally flooded (overwhelmed)   ■ Men are more likely to do the stonewalling (ignore)   ○ Why is this so?  ■ Gottman demonstrates that because men and women respond to  emotions differently depending on how they are raised, men and women  to respond to conflict within relationships differently  ○ Why does this matter/mean?  ■ Well, we have been discussing that emotions are socially constructed,  meaning that emotions are social. Therefore, the different ways that men  and women are reared to respond to emotions, demonstrates this very  argument because if socialization did not influence the way people  respond to emotions, then there would be no conflict within heterosexual  couples  ● For example, Gottman demonstrates that same sex couples, have  really successful relationships­ resolve conflict better than  heterosexual couples. While there is no data to explain this,  differences in the socialization between genders, strongly stands  as a reason (men are socialized to respond to emotion in the  same way and thus, is plausible for why man­man relationships  work out conflict well)  ○ Marriage and contempt  ■ Worst emotion to show during a conflict (in marriage)  ● Such as rolling eyes  ■ Contempt is a sign of annoyance and that one doesn't care   2/23/2016  ■ Patterns of contempt are early signs of a doomed marriage  ● The one receiving it heart rate goes up  ○ Gets sick (stomach)  ■ Emotional intelligence  ● focus, empathize and calm (reduce tension)
