Emotional Intelligence / Emotional Competence

The ability to appropriately recognize and regulate one's own and others' emotions plays an important role in social life. This ability has been conceptualized as "emotional intelligence" or "emotional competence," and has attracted attention from education and industry.

My research incorporates the perspective of "social cognitive theory," which views personality as a dynamic cognitive-emotional system that develops through experience and aims to elucidate its mental mechanisms and individual differences. By doing so, I try to reveal what kinds of cognitive mechanism can integrate emotion and intelligence.

Extrinsic Emotion Regulation

To date, most emotion regulation studies have focused on intrinsic emotion regulation (regulating one's own emotions). However, individuals also regulate others emotions (extrinsic emotion regulation) such as cheering up a sad person. I conduct surveys and experiments to reveal psychological mechanism underlying effective extrinsic emotion regulation.
