Psychometric Properties of the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire: Factor Structure, Reliability, Construct, and Incremental Validity in a French-Speaking Population
TLDR
Encouraging preliminary findings in favor of the use of the TEIQue are found, which had incremental validity to predict emotional reactivity over and above social desirability, alexithymia, and the Five-factor model of personality.
Social sharing of emotion : new evidence and new questions
Rime et af. (1992) showed that most emotional experiences are shared with others shortly after they occurred. They proposed that social sharing represents an integral part of emotional experiences.
Flashbulb memories and the underlying mechanisms of their formation: Toward an emotional-integrative model
TLDR
Investigating the FBMs that Belgian citizens developed upon learning of the unexpected death of their king Baudouin revealed that the third model, which takes into account emotional processes, better explains FBM.
Aware and (dis)liking: item-based analyses reveal that valence acquisition via evaluative conditioning emerges only when there is contingency awareness.
TLDR
It is found that EC emerged on contingency aware CSs only, and this pattern supports the idea that awareness of the CS-US associations may be required for valence acquisition via EC.
Alexithymia and the Processing of Emotional Facial Expressions (EFEs): Systematic Review, Unanswered Questions and Further Perspectives
TLDR
A review of studies identified through a computerized literature search of Psycinfo, PubMed, and Web of Science databases revealed that alexithymia is associated with deficits in labelling EFEs among clinical disorders, the level of depression and anxiety partially account for the decoding deficits.
An Evaluation of the Absolute and Relative Stability of Alexithymia in Patients with Major Depression
TLDR
Although alexithymia scores may change in the presence of large changes in the severity of depressive symptoms, the finding of relative stability of alexitymia supports the view that this construct is a stable personality trait rather a state-dependent phenomenon.

Alexithymia refers to the difficulties an individual has in experiencing and expressing feelings. The 20‐item Toronto Alexithymia Scale (TAS‐20) and the Bermond–Vorst Alexithymia Questionnaire (BVAQ)
Evaluative conditioning may incur attentional costs.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that a reduction in attentional resources may have a negative impact on EC, and the role of higher order processes in EC is clarified and has significant practical implications.
