The Dynamics of Basic Parameters of Emotions: A Model and Literary Data

2005. Vol. 2. No. 3. P. 19–42 [issue contents]
The author reviews the literature on the emotional dynamics in individual activity in the light of his own model, which involves four main parameters: positive and negative emotions, their balance and the level of emotional arousal (an integral characteristic). He draws hypothetical curves that show how these parameters change in connection with the efficacy of a normal activity (an activity of a person from the majority of the population, who acts under ordinary circumstances). These curves include the monotone descending curve for negative emotions, the bell‑shaped one for positive emotions, and two inverted J-shaped curves: one for the emotional balance with the upward tendency and the other for the integral parameter with downward tendency. The author argues that his model fits well into the existing data and discusses some difficulties that arise from working with the literature.
