Адаптация методики оценки базового аффекта М. Йик, Дж.А. Расселла и Дж.Х. Штайгера

Малашенко М. Д., Стрижова Е. А.

In the article the results of the validation of a novel method for assessment of an emotional state called core affect - 12-Point Affect Circumplex Scales, Adjective Format, developed by M. Yik, J.A. Russell and J.H. Steiger, is introduced. This methodology allows to assess core affect – elementary emotion state which lies in the core of every emotion and represents an integral unit consisting of two factors which every person feels permanently – valence (pleasure-displeasure) and arousal (activation-deactivation). The adaptation of the test was conducted on the sample of 200 random individuals. In order to evaluate the construct validity, correlation analysis with the results of three other tests was performed: C. Izard's Differential Emotion Scale, Self-assessment of the Emotional State by A. Wessman and D. Ricks method and the method for Evaluation of psychological activation, interest, emotional tone, tension and comfort by L.A. Kurgansky and T.A. Nemchin. Cronbach's alpha for each scale was estimated. The results of the psychometric check of the instrument allow to infer high levels of reliability and construct validity. Practical importance of the instrument consists in it's applicability for the assessment of human's emotional state even when the object of the feeling is not obvious.
