"If we came face to face with life outside of Earth, we would actually be pretty upbeat about it", said co-author Michael Varnum, an assistant professor of psychology at Arizona State University.
Varnum makes this conclusion based on an analysis of newspaper articles covering past potential discoveries of extraterrestrial life. Through the work, they aimed to evaluate the nature of our response to encountering aliens by analyzing reactions using a software program that quantifies feelings, emotions, drives and other psychological states in written texts.
Language in these articles showed significantly more positive than negative emotions, the team found.

In the case of both their own reaction and everyone else's, the participants hypothesized responses that were more positive than negative.
He said the findings show that "taken together, this suggests if we find out we're not alone, we'll take the news rather well". "It would be exciting even if it was a primitive form".
They also conducted experiments involving two groups of participants. If word ever breaks of an imminent extraterrestrial invasion, "War of the Worlds" or "Independence Day" style, we're likely to express a few more negative emotions.
