Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female.  People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state.  When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry.  This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.

"You need to build an ability to just be yourself and not be doing something, that’s what the phones are taking away — the ability to just sit there. That’s being a person. “
"I started to get that sad feeling and reached for my phone, but I thought ‘don’t’ — just be sad, stand in the way of it and let it hit you like a truck.”  “I was grateful to feel sad and then I met it with true, profound happiness.”
