Practical and research implications
We conclude that wearable microphones have the potential to serve as cheap and unobtrusive tools for measuring stress response to group processes.
We thank Prof. Alex “Sandy” Pentland and his research group at the MIT Media Lab for providing the sociometric badges used in this study. We also thank 54 undergraduate research assistants at Cornell University and Heather McLinn for invaluable assistance with data collection and research assistance, Chris Cameron for his helpful advice in developing the badge protocol, and Brian Powell and an anonymous reviewer for helpful feedback. We also thank the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program for its financial support. Financial support for this research was also provided by grants from the National Science Foundation and the Center for the Study of Inequality at Cornell University.
