Emotional contagion has been a focus problem in the current fields of psychology and organizational behavior. Based on the theoretical analysis of the emotional contagion mechanisms and probabilistic theory, a cellular automaton (CA) model has been proposed to simulate the process of emotional contagion. And with the help of this CA model, we study the gross features of employees’ positive emotions in the evolution of emotional contagion and explore the effects of employees’ ability to transport emotion susceptibility and intimacy on the reaction process. The results indicate that employees’ ability to transport positive emotion susceptibility and intimacy are positive related to the emotional contagion between employees.
