Why It Works


Reflecting on one’s own and others’ emotional states is a critical first step toward self-awareness and purposeful emotion management. Coupled with emotion knowledge, it is the foundation of what is variably called EI, EQ, or soft or interpersonal skills. ThinkHuman.tv helps develop a habit of reflection through the ongoing practice of reflecting on the emotional experiences of the characters in some of the best and most popular movies and shows.

Research indicates that emotion knowledge is foundational to skills like emotional flexibility, regulation and empathy, and serves as a protective factor against stress, anxiety, and depression. ThinkHuman.tv enhances emotion knowledge by helping users understand fundamental psychological principles that govern our emotions, such as situational appraisal. And it helps cement that knowledge through engaging practice done while watching some of today's best movies and shows.
