Japanese researchers from Hiroshima University have studied the influence of positive emotion in people when viewing pictures with cute animals on their activities, and in particular labor productivity. Specialists conducted opinion poll suggesting participate 48 student volunteers in a simple experiment. The volunteers were divided into three groups: one group treated with animal pictures, second group - the photo is of adult animals, and the third - look at the pictures that do not belong to the animal world. Then, the volunteers played a game for the Coordination of hand movements, are searching for numbers in numeric arrays, and demonstrated their ability to concentrate at the right time for certain things. It was found that the participants in the first group showed better themselves, that they are ahead of the game positive energy, lifting your spirits when viewing images from the seals and pups. The group of subjects who were treated with photo adult animals, took second place. Weak results showed that at all and did not see pictures of animals.
