EICC Live Online: Being Social? with Mary Stewart
Free online talk with Q&A
Mary Stewart is a Reader in Psychology at Edinburgh's Heriot-Watt University. Join her as she discusses some of the factors which influence social interaction.
Why is it that some people seem to have an easy manner with people, while others seem awkward, may mistime their responses, or not pick up on cues? Are these differences constant, for instance, does a person’s personality or whether they have autism influence how they perceive, understand and interact with the world, or are there other situational factors, such as mood, and context, which may play a role? And do any of these matter – will they affect my mood and wellbeing?
