Empirical research suggests, that following the experience of social exclusion, an increased amount of attention will be paid to positive and negative nonverbal, social cues. This study focused on affective perception and classification accuracy for emotional facial expressions of negative valence. For facial expressions of disgust, as a sign of rejection in social interactions, a heightened sensitivity after the experience of social exclusion was predicted. 95 female participants were randomly assigned to one of three possible experimental conditions (social exclusion, social inclusion, control group). Social exclusion was manipulated by a computerized exclusion paradigm called MatchingMinds. Participants were rejected by a supposed soul mate, which declined having anymore contact with the participant after a short interaction at the beginning of the study. Following this, all participants rated 30 facial stimuli, each presented for 3 seconds on a computer screen, showing the emotional expression of disgust, fear or a neutral expression. For each stimulus, participants indicated on nine-level rating scales their perception of disgust, fear, valence and arousal. Analyses of variance showed no differences between experimental conditions for any measure of affective perception. Excluded participants showed equal levels of classification accuracy for negative stimuli as participants from the other experimental conditions. There was no negative perception bias (disgust, fear) for neutral facial expressions. Results suggest that there is no increased sensibility for negative emotional expressions, following a unique experience of exclusion. Perhaps, instead of this is, attention is more directed towards signs of acceptance, thwarting the threat of belongingness and to regain the desired inclusion status.
