Teens 'catch' moods from friends, new study finds

Jan 21, 2021 13:52 IST

A new study by the Oxford and Birmingham universities finds that teenagers 'catch' moods from their friends and often negative moods are more contagious than positive ones.

The aim of the study was to assess the impact of the moods of individuals within a shared network and investigate “emotional contagion” among teenagers.

It found that your mood is similar to those who you spend the most time with and that there was a tolerance for different moods.

The research concluded that a friend could influence another with their positive mood and pull them out of their misery.
