Emotional dissonance is a feeling experienced when one is forced to fake an emotion. For example, air hostesses are expected to have an upbeat disposition at all times, regardless of their actual emotional state. Many people—comedians for example—have a significant degree of emotional adaptability, and can mask their emotions for extended periods of time without too much stress.
