Spillover Effect



Spillover Effect:

+ add to my flashcards cite this term

Spillover Effect refers to the tendency of one person's emotion to affect how other people around them feel. For example, the teacher received a phone call that his wife was pregnant with a much-awaited baby. He goes into class happy and excited, and although he doesn't tell his class about the good news, his good mood rubs off on his students and they feel happy as well.
