Abstract

It was hypothesized that moods manipulated (positive, negative, or neutral) would be congruent with perception. Participants included 24 females and 11 male university students (M=24, SD=7.23). Participants were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 mood manipulations. Subsequently, participants via questionnaire evaluated perception of positive, negative, and neutral behaviors. There were differences in perception of positive (M=16.46; SD=5.28), negative (M=12.62; SD=5.85), and neutral behaviors (M=14.04; SD=4.31). There was a significant interaction between perception of behaviors and mood manipulation, mixed F (4, 58)= 3.048, p=.024, η2=.174. The results provide support for the theory that positive and neutral moods can affect social perception.
