Affect, Mood, and Emotions
- 1.5k Downloads
Affect is commonly used as an umbrella term for emotions and moods (Frijda, 1994). However, emotions and moods are distinct phenomena. Whereas emotions usually have a stimulus event, are comparatively intense, short in duration, and have behavioural implications (Scherer, 2005); moods consist of rather global, undirected, and mostly unconscious background sensations that are more stable than emotions (Lischetzke & Eid, 2011). In addition, emotions evoke autonomic arousal (Diener, Scollon, & Lucas, 2009).
