Belief and feeling: evidence for an accessibility model of emotional self-report.
TLDR
An accessibility model is offered that specifies the types of factors that contribute to emotional self-reports under different reporting conditions and suggests some new directions for research.
Measures of emotion: A review
TLDR
There is no “gold standard” measure of emotional responding, and experiential, physiological, and behavioural measures are all relevant to understanding emotion and cannot be assumed to be interchangeable.

Episodic and semantic knowledge in emotional self-report: evidence for two judgment processes.
: Three studies involving 3 participant samples (Ns = 39, 55, and 53) tested the hypothesis that people retrieve episodic emotion knowledge when reporting on their emotions over short (e.g., last few
Episodic and semantic knowledge in emotional self-report: evidence for two judgment processes.
TLDR
It is suggested that self-reports of emotion over short versus long time frames assess qualitatively different sources of self-knowledge, and 2 distinct judgment strategies are suggested.
The Cognitive Basis of Trait Anger and Reactive Aggression: An Integrative Analysis
TLDR
The analysis reveals that processes related to automatic hostile interpretations, ruminative attention, and effortful control appear to be important contributors to individual differences in angry reactivity, and memory accessibility processes failed to exhibit a consistent relationship with trait anger.
The anatomy of anger: an integrative cognitive model of trait anger and reactive aggression.
TLDR
It is proposed that low trait anger individuals use effortful control resources to self-regulate the influence of their hostile thoughts, whereas those high in trait anger do not.
The Happy Spotlight: Positive Mood and Selective Attention to Rewarding Information
TLDR
A systematic program of research found that daily positive mood states were associated with attention to reward words in a spatial probe task and replicated this association in the context of mood manipulations, and showed that the effect generalizes across different mood manipulation procedures, is specific topositive mood states, and is particularly apparent in relation to rewarding (vs. non-rewarding) positive stimuli.
Integrating Personality Structure, Personality Process, and Personality Development
In this target article, we argue that personality processes, personality structure, and personality development have to be understood and investigated in integrated ways in order to provide
What's "up" with God? Vertical space as a representation of the divine.
