Does culture influence biology
A question of culture
In Japan the eyes, in the USA the mouth
In Asian countries like Japan, it is the norm to control emotions or even suppress them completely. That this succeeds especially in the mouth area, people of Asian cultures read the emotions of their counterpart primarily from the expression of the eyes. In western cultures like the USA, people live out their emotions relatively openly. The people of these cultures pay particular attention to the expressive mouth when reading emotions.
Emoticons as part of the culture
The cultural difference is also evident in the modern written language. When chatting, different emoticons are used depending on the culture. While in Japan the eyes of the emoticons convey the emotion, for example (^_^) for happy and (; _;) for sad, the focus of Americans is on the mouth, :-) for happy and :-( for sad .
