Emotional Contagion is a psychological phenomenon that means when a person attempts to synchronize their emotions with those of their companion’s they tend to feel the reflections of the same.  Thus, in a way, one person’s emotions become “contagious”, either consciously or unconsciously.

Emotional Contagion can be easily noticed when someone is sad or depressed. When another person joins their company the negative emotions tend to affect their mood as well.
