People in Negative Mood May See Relations Where People in Positive Mood May Not

  title={People in Negative Mood May See Relations Where People in Positive Mood May Not},
  author={Penka Hristova},
The paper presents an experiment that bridges emotional and analogy-making research. It suggests that relational correspondences may depend on long-lasting emotional states (i.e. mood). In congruence with the research demonstrating different information processing depending on positive and negative mood, the presented experiment shows that participants in positive mood made more attribute correspondences, while participants in negative mood – more relational ones.
