表达抑制是指当情绪被唤醒的时候, 有意识抑制自己的情绪表达行为。诸多研究表明表达抑制并不是一个有用且有效的策略。但不可忽视的是, 文化因素是表达抑制与结果变量关系间的一个重要调节因素。即, 在个人主义文化中, 表达抑制通常发挥着较负面的作用。但在集体主义文化中, 表达抑制并非完全是一种不恰当的调节策略。这可能与文化价值观、对“面子”观点的态度以及父母的应对方式有关。未来的研究方向主要在于表达抑制在集体主义文化及不同亚文化中的作用、学业背景下表达抑制的作用及其功能的文化差异以及被试取样的多样化等方面。

关键词: 表达抑制, 个人主义文化, 集体主义文化, 文化差异


Expressive suppression refers to the “conscious inhibition of one’s own emotionally expressive behavior while emotionally aroused”. Many studies have shown that expression suppression is not an useful or effective strategy. But what we should not ignore is that cultural factor is an important moderator between expression suppression and outcome variables. That is to say, expression suppression often plays a negative role in individualistic culture. While in collectivistic culture, expression suppression is not completely an inappropriate regulation strategy. This may be associated with cultural values, one's attitude to “face” and parents' way of coping with affairs. Future studies of expression suppression should be aimed at the role of expression suppression in collectivistic culture and different subculture. At the same time, it is necessary to pay more attention to the role of expression suppression and its cultural differences in academic domain and the diversification of sampling subjects.

Key words: expressive suppression, individualistic culture, collectivistic culture, cultural differences
