Last week the first iPhone 6s were released and millions were of course purchased. Jack Cooksey bought the first one in Perth, Australia - and immediately obliged a T.V. reporter when she asked to show it on camera. Unfortunately his adrenaline was a bit elevated and as he opened the box, his new iPhone fell onto the sidewalk. Ouch.
The expression/movements on/of the reporter's face afterward provides us with a good example of a nonverbal cluster of embarrassment including:
- Facial Blushing
- Prolonged Bilateral eye closure
- Tongue Jut
- Head Shaking side-to-side
- Sincere Suppressed Smile
Not only does the reporter feels it's her fault - she also has a high empathy quotient. How do we go about assessing a person's empathy level?
