Abstract

The article presents a summary of three studies looking at the use of affect for information. The authors hypothesize that dependence upon affect changes according to individuals' self-regulatory systems. In the studies, the authors found that individuals with a temporary or chronic behavioral activation system/promotion self-regulatory focus tend to depend on positive and negative emotions for information, whereas individuals with a temporary or chronic behavioral inhibition system/prevention self-regulatory focus only rely on positive emotions for information.
