What makes a joyful movement look joyful? We assume that emotions alter the performance of a movement in specific ways that can be recognized by observers. We use social consensus to determine whether or not a movement expresses a specific emotion. In this series of studies, observers view video clips of people moving while they are experiencing different emotions and then report which emotion they think the person is feeling.
