How Culture Shapes our Feelings: Implications for Happiness with Jeanne Tsai. Our emotions seem so natural and automatic that we assume everyone feels and wants to feel the same way we do. In this talk, Professor Tsai focuses on cultural differences and how they influence people’s definitions of happiness, perceptions of others and other aspects of daily life.
