For nearly half a century, social scientists have operated under the assumption that all basic human emotions are universally recognizable. New research suggests that assumption is wrong: http://pops.ci/1iLaNWd

Ekman states that his emotions are universal that they are the same in every culture. It does not imply that all people categorize facial expressions the same way naturally.

Ekmans theory does not seem to be wrong to me. It simply is only a part of the picture.
