EMOTIONAL SENSITIVITY FOR ANGER AND FEAR DECREASE OVER THE LIFE SPAN BUT FOR HAPPINESS IS PRESERVED

EMOTIONAL SENSITIVITY FOR ANGER AND FEAR DECREASE OVER THE LIFE SPAN BUT FOR HAPPINESS IS PRESERVED
Emotional sensitivity decreases for both anger and fear decreases with age  with no change in happiness sensitivity.  Females showed enhanced sensitivity to anger and fear relative to males, but similar sensitivity to happiness. 

While sensitivity to all emotions (fear, anger and happiness) increased during adolescence and early adulthood, sensitivity to anger showed the largest increase, potentially related to the importance of anger perception during adolescent development.

This suggests implications and interventions for anger during early ages of life.
