Measures of
emotion: A
Iris B. Mauss and Michael D. Robinson
What are emotions?
Dimensional approach
➢ Valence is positive or negative
➢ Arousal measures how calming or
exciting the information is
Discrete theory
➢ Characterized by stable patterns of
triggers, behavioral expression, and
associated distinct subjective
Main purpose
To examine whether emotional states are defined by:
- discrete universal patterns (anger, fear, happiness),
- dimensions, like valence, arousal, approach-avoidance.
Main hypothesis
The main hypothesis suggests that emotions are characterized by
three dimensions: valence, arousal, and approach-avoidance,
rather than defined emotional patterns.
