    Interesting interview. I always love your shows in the ”physiological psychology” series (even though you would hate that name, I guess, reminiscent as it is of your dreadful first encounter with psych in college :))

    Some of the findings should tie in nicely with my all time favorite Stephen Porges’ work and apply well to children and adults with so-called neuropsychiatric diagnoses, which often include hypersensitivity to environmental input. In the case with the warm cup I find the interpretation linking physical warmth to social warmth, and so suggesting an unconscious verbal—symbolic connection, a bit far-fetched. With dr Porges’ theories in mind, my layman guess would be that the warm cups simply calmed the participants’ nervous systems, perhaps by means of oxytocin, and so induced the relaxed, social neurophysiological state, which in turns increased agreeableness. Some other examples though were quite convincing, and fascinating, in suggesting a linguistic mechanism.
