« The Influence of Methods of Measuring Emotion on Models of Emotion »
Cindy Harmon-Jones, University of New South Wales
Models of emotion are a matter of debate and vary widely among different emotion theorists. This may be partially due to the methods by which emotions are measured. Valence (positivity vs. negativity) is highly accessible to self-report. However, other dimensions of emotions such as motivational direction (approach vs. avoidance) or attention (acceptance vs. rejection) become more salient when emotions are measured in other ways, as by physiological recordings or perceptions of facial expressions. Furthermore, evidence from affective neuroscience, facial expressions, and developmental psychology supports a discrete emotions perspective. This talk will cover the contributions to an understanding of emotions provided by the use of multiple measures, and will present data validating a new self-report instrument for measuring discrete emotions.
Ce séminaire aura lieu le lundi 30 mai 2016 à 14h dans la salle du conseil de l’Institut de psychologie de l’Université Paris Descartes
