In the past, tears on a face were assumed to increase sadness of all facial emotions without a systematic investigation. We had participants categorize seven basic emotions with or without tears, and found that the effect of tears was rather limited; participants incorrectly categorized facial emotions as sadness only when tears were added to angry or neutral faces.
