Lecture 11 Emotions Emotion: a conscious evaluative reaction to some event. Elements of Emotion:  • Physical arousal •  Behavior that reveals emotion •  Inner awareness of feelings  Mood: a feeling state that is not clearly linked to some event.  Affect: the automatic response that something is good or bad. Conscious Emotions: a powerful and clearly unified feeling state, such as anger or joy.  Automatic Affect: a quick response of liking or disliking toward something.  Arousal: a physiological reaction, including faster heartbeat and faster or heavier breathing,  linked to most conscious emotions.  Common Sense Theory: A stimulus (snarling dog) leads to an emotion of fear, which then leads to bodily arousal (in this case, indicated by shaking) through the autonomic nervous system. James­Lange Theory of Emotion: the proposition that the bodily processes of emotion come  first and the minds perception of these bodily reactions then creates the subjective feeling of  emotion.  Circumplex Model Facial Feedback Hypothesis: the idea that feedback from the face muscles evokes or magnifies  emotions.  Cannon­Bard theory of emotion: the proposition that emotional stimuli activate the thalamus,  which then activates both the cortex, producing an experienced emotion, and the hypothalamus  and autonomic nervous system, producing physiological arousal. Proposes that the feeling and  the physical responses are parallel effects and processes.  Schachter­ Singer Theory of Emotion: the idea that emotion has two components: a bodily  state of arousal and a cognitive label that specifies the emotion.  Lazarus’s Cognitive­Mediational Theory: A stimulus causes an immediate appraisal  (e.g., “The dog is snarling and not behind a fence,  so this is dangerous”). The cognitive appraisal results in an emotional response, which is then  followed by the appropriate bodily response. Excitation Transfer: the idea that arousal from one event can transfer to a later event.  Affect Balance: the frequency of positive emotions minus the frequency of negative emotions.  Life Satisfaction: an evaluation of how one’s life is generally and how it compares to some  standard.  Hedonic Treadmill: theory that says people’s happiness generally stay at the same level. \ Anger: an emotional response to a real or imagined threat or provocation.   Expressions of Anger: Never Show Anger, Vent one’s anger= Catharsis theory/ intense  physical exercise, Get rid of anger= Decrease arousal.  Best option: Get rid of anger= Decrease arousal Catharsis Theory: the proposition that expressing negative emotions produces a healthy release  of those emotions and is therefore good for the psyche.  Guilt: an unpleasant moral emotions associated with a specific instance in which one has acted  badly or wrongly.  Shame: a moral emotion that, like guilt, involves feeling bad but, unlike guilt, spreads to the  whole person.  Disgust: a strong negative feeling of repugnance and revulsion.  Emotional Intelligence: the ability to perceive, access, generate, understand, and reflectively  regulate emotions.  Emotional Regulation:  • Surface Acting • Hiding observable expressions • Disguise of true feelings • Deep Acting • Managing internal feelings • Attempting to actively modify natural response or emotional state • Surface acting can seem fake or false to an observer. • Surface acting causes stress and cognitive exhaustion • Surface acting frequently results in : leads to absenteeism, lower performance, turnover • Deep acting is perceived as more honest and has less negative effects
