An important aspect that has raised the interest of many scholars in last decades concerns the changes in conscious and unconscious perception that occurs over the life span. In particular, social perception has gained great consideration due to his fundamental role in the human interaction dynamics. The capacity of forming impressions and make inferences about other people refers broadly to the ability to understand and react appropriately to the social signals sent out by other people. This ability in identify the other people's emotions is a predictor of well-being, mental health and social competency.
