Smartphones and sensitivity to emotion ‎01 ‎September ‎2014, ‏‎15:24:42 Young people who regularly use digital media to communicate risk becoming less sensitive to emotional cues from others, new research has indicated. According to a study by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), published in Computers in Human Behavior, test participants who avoided using devices such as smartphones for five days were much better at reading people's emotions than those who continued using electronic gadgets. What gamblers and pigeons share ‎01 ‎September ‎2014, ‏‎13:52:09 Gamblers are more likely to take risks if a high-value reward is up for grabs, a new study has found. According to research by the University of Warwick, published in Biology Letters, people are 35 per cent less risk-averse if a lucrative prize is on offer. Dr Elliot Ludvig, who led the study, believes these actions are influenced partly by their memories of previous winning bets. Customers who feel valued stay loyal ‎01 ‎September ‎2014, ‏‎13:50:00 Customers are more likely to stay loyal to a brand if they are made to feel valued, a new study has found. According to research by Queensland University of Technology, published in the Journal of Retailing and Consumer Services, many shoppers are failing to stick with certain companies even if they are promised freebies, discounts and other perks.
