Emotion Elicitation Using Film Clips: Effect of Age Groups on Movie Choice and Emotion Rating
In affective computing an accurate emotion recognition process requires a reliable emotion elicitation method. One of the arising questions while inducing emotions for computer-based emotional applications is age group differences. In the present study, we investigate the effect of emotion elicitation on various age groups. Emotion elicitation was conducted using standardized movie clips representing five basic emotions: amusement, sadness, anger, disgust and fear. Each emotion was elicited by three different clips. The different clips are individually rated and the subjective choice of the most relevant clip is analyzed. The results show the influence of age on film-clip choice, the correlation between age and valence/arousal rating for the chosen clips and the differences in valence and arousal ratings in the different age groups.
