Abstract

Empirical evidence shows the efficiency of coordinated interaction in mother-infant dyads through unintentional movements: social entrainment, early imitation. The growing body of the literature evidently shows an impact of arousal on group performance and spreading emotion from one individual to another organism, called emotional contagion. The emotion sharing somehow stimulates shared intentionality in individuals of "primary group". Although there is increasing evidence of consistency between some "motion" and "emotion" concepts, research demonstrating the synergy of the integrative process of all these five concepts is limited. This study presents a dynamic integrated model of motion-emotions synergy that combines and manages all the above-mentioned appearances--the Model of Coherent Intelligence. This model is supported by arguments that are strictly based on experimental evidence in the literature and 24 online experiments in 2020. Primary groups show empirical evidence of a more significant accuracy in problem-solving in the coherent intelligence state. In specific, we conducted 13 online experiments in dyads (116 subjects) with P-value < 0.001, and 7 experiments in primary group adults (41 subjects) with the P-value < 0.002. Experiments with not well-known adults from the secondary group show the effect only within task UL3 (41 subjects in experiment No.12 with translation of unfamiliar language). Non-semantic tasks--SL3 (synthetic language) and US3 (two-color symbols)--did not stimulate the effect in 3 experiments with 207 secondary group subjects (unfamiliar students). The outcome demonstrates inter-brain connectivity through ongoing emotions and motion dynamics, creating cooperation levels beyond sensory modalities
