Embarrassment is a self-conscious, unpleasant emotional response that results from violation of social conventions and expectations. Recent studies have shown that people may also experience embarrassment resulting from witnessing embarrassing behaviors of strangers. This emotional response to the mishaps of others is known as 'empathic embarrassment' or 'vicarious embarrassment'. The purpose of this study is to test the reliability and validity of Vicarious Embarrassment Scale in an American sample (Ns = 616) and examine its correlates with related constructs. As a result, people scoring higher in vicarious embarrassment also scored higher in susceptibility to embarrassment, fear of negative evaluation, empathy and perspective-taking, but scored lower in self-esteem. In addition, the findings suggest that vicarious embarrassment involves more than just empathy and perspective-taking.

Investigating cognitive and emotional factors that trigger pupil delation in human computer interaction
Uyanık Civek, Ceren; Gökçay, Didem; Baltacı, Serdar; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2018)

Measurement of pupil dilation is an effective indicator to achieve a successive classification for categorizing the psychological state of a user. In this study, rather than trying to identify several psychological states, we focused on the identification of stress. There exist several factors that shift the state of a computer user from relaxation to stress. In this study, we mainly focused on the cognitive factor...
