Variations in the Circumplex Model of Affect Across Contexts

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearch

Although Russell’s circumplex model of affect is one of the most widely used models
for capturing self-reported emotions, few, if any, studies have examined whether this
model is appropriate for measuring changes in emotions in different contexts. We
construct an experiment which enables us to manipulate emotions and study the
consequences of these manipulations over time. We find that self-report data at the
end of our experiment match well with the circumplex model of affect, but that the
model changes with experimental context over time. We suggest methods to
determine when the circumplex model of affect is constant across different contexts
and can be used to compare changes in emotions. Further we suggest a pragmatic
solution when such comparisons cannot readily be made.
