Negative Valence Effect in Affective Forecasting: The Unique Impact of the Valence Among Dispositional and Contextual Factors for Certain Life Events
Decades of research on affective forecasting have shown a persistent intensity bias—a strong tendency by which people overestimate their future hedonic response for positive events and underestimate
Dispositional happiness and affective forecasting: General or specific effect?
Recent findings suggest that dispositional traits can influence personal affective forecasting. In this study, we investigated the relationship between dispositional happiness and affective
Affective forecasting and self-rated symptoms of depression, anxiety, and hypomania: Evidence for a dysphoric forecasting bias
TLDR
Evidence for a dysphoric forecasting bias is found—the tendency of individuals in dysphoric states to overpredict negative emotional reactions to future events and has implications for affective forecasting studies examining information-processing constructs, decision making, and broader domains of psychopathology.
Cognitive determinants of affective forecasting errors.
TLDR
Examination of individual differences and contextual variables associated with cognitive processing in affective forecasting for an election showed that the perceived importance of the event and working memory capacity were both associated with an increased impact bias for some participants, whereas retrieval interference had no relationship with bias.
Accuracy and artifact: reexamining the intensity bias in affective forecasting.
TLDR
The results showed that participants accurately predicted the intensity of their feelings about events and revealed that people have more sophisticated self-knowledge than is commonly portrayed in the affective forecasting literature.
Extraversion and neuroticism: Associated responses to a positive mood induction
The purpose of this investigation was two-fold: (1) to determine if a musical stimulus can successfully generate a positive mood induction and (2) to identify particular personality traits that may
Coping strategies and immune neglect in affective forecasting: Direct evidence and key moderators.
TLDR
Supporting the immune neglect hypothesis, participants overlooked the powerful role of coping strategies when predicting their emotional reactions, suggesting that the bias may be more robust than originally theorized.
The Effect of a Mindfulness Practice and Dispositional Mindfulness on Affective Forecasting
ABSTRACT A field experiment was conducted to evaluate whether mindfulness produces higher affective forecasting accuracy. Participants were randomized into a mindfulness-task, control-task, or

TLDR
Empirical intelligence, a subcomponent of EI, emerged as the strongest predictor of forecasting ability and affective forecasting accuracy.
Affective Forecasting
People base many decisions on affective forecasts, predictions about their emotional reactions to future events. They often display an impact bias, overestimating the intensity and duration of their
Immune neglect in affective forecasting.
Cognitive determinants of affective forecasting errors.
TLDR
Examination of individual differences and contextual variables associated with cognitive processing in affective forecasting for an election showed that the perceived importance of the event and working memory capacity were both associated with an increased impact bias for some participants, whereas retrieval interference had no relationship with bias.
Beyond valence: Toward a model of emotion-specific influences on judgement and choice
Most theories of affective influences on judgement and choice take a valence-based approach, contrasting the effects of positive versus negative feeling states. These approaches have not specified if
Susceptibility to affect: a comparison of three personality taxonomies.
TLDR
Coherence among the relationships found across methodological contexts suggests that the traits that predict emotion susceptibilities in the laboratory similarly predict emotional experience in ongoing daily life.
Relations between Affect and Personality: Support for the Affect-Level and Affective-Reactivity Views
A consensus has emerged that neuroticism is associated with negative affect and extraversion is associated with positive affect. However, it is unclear whether these personality traits are associated
Immune neglect: a source of durability bias in affective forecasting.
TLDR
The present experiments suggest that people neglect the psychological immune system when making affective forecasts.
Personality and susceptibility to positive and negative emotional states.
TLDR
Results are consistent with the hypothesis that neurotic Ss (comparing with stable Ss) show heightened emotional reactivity to the negative-mood induction, whereas extraverts (compared with intraverts) show increased emotional reactivities to the positive-Mood induction.
Focalism: a source of durability bias in affective forecasting.
TLDR
Evidence for a distraction interpretation is found, that people who think about future events moderate their forecasts because they believe that these events will reduce thinking about the focal event.
