Why would it be that a group of people in the same place have the same mood?
This has happened to me before, and it happened today. Me and my room-mates were all simultaneously tired. I was alright yesterday, doing quite well, then today there was a total drop in energy. It also happens sometimes that all people in the situation will be cranky, etc. It seems entirely unexplainable; nothing in the situation necessarily would have brought it about.
This is an excellent question! As far as I know, people have these things called mirror neurons, which are responsible for mirroring moods of different people and therefore the ability to feel into somebody's skin or empathy. When you have a friend and you know each other quite well, you can easily feel his emotions and energy levels. The bigger rapport you have, the higher is tendency to mirror.
Also, it can be connected to a certain pattern. Let's say one of you developed an emotional pattern that is connected to a certain place or situation. When he gets into the given situation or place, his physiology and mentality changes in a second. Then in combination with mirroring people you have high rapport with, the entire group could feel the same way and drops to the energy of one person.
Humans evolved in small groups. We unconsciously read each other's body language. That tells us were each person is coming from. We unsconscioulsly monitor neuogical stress too. And we empower that to tell us what the group is feelig and doing next.
Danwe and Dr Billy, both fascinating answers and makes sense; I was thinking it was an interaction, and I have heard of mirror neurons, and also felt it had to do with sensitivity and empathy. I definitely see what you guys are saying.
