Positive and Negative Emotions Related to a Circumplex Value Structure
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Psychology, Cognitive psychology.
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

It has been suggested that some values are contrastive with opposites which also can be seen as values. These values form a circumplex structure. Other values are non-contrastive lacking opposite values. The hypothesis is tested that contrastive values activate both specific negative and positive emotions with a strength consistent with the proposed circumplex value structure. This hypothesis was confirmed in Study 1 by ratings of how values relate to different emotions obtained from 120 undergraduates. Ratings of emotions elicited by the values were obtained and submitted to multidimensional scaling yielding a circumplex structure similar to the structure of contrastive values. The results of Study 2 with 79 undergraduates as participants confirmed that non-contrastive values lead to more positive and less negative emotions than contrastive values. The emotions connected to the contrastive values differed in strength depending on the salience of the values.
