HIGHER-ORDER FACTORS IN THE DIFFERENTIAL EMOTIONS SCALE (DES-III) GREGORY J. BOYLE* University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19711, U.S.A (Received I7 June 1985) Summary-The 30-item version of Izard’s Differential Emotions Scale (DES-III) was submitted to an task of responding to the DES-IV and 8SQ items willingly and without reservation, place.

Hence, it seems likely that, -IV nor the 8SQ includes subscales intended primarily to index, indings support the Eysenckian typological model, -stratum factors, and in addition, suggesting, IV subscale labelled Fear exhibited a statistic, the measurement of mood states, and providing an unnecessarily. (1986). The Differential Emotions Scale or DES-IV, ... Boyle [4] has provided evidence supporting the reliability and validity of the DES-IV. The present article addresses the important issue of the psychometric assessment of mood, and evaluates the measurement overlap (redundancy) between two multidimensional instruments, the Eight State Questionnaire (8SQ) and the Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV). Negative emotions = 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 17, 18, 20 = This patient received 14 out of a possible 40 points OR a mean score of 1.4/4. Boyle (1984), vel). These higher-. 43-44; cf. All rights reserved. was some evidence to support their validity, the reliability of the subscales was generally, less than adequate. The implications of these findings for behavioral assessment are discussed. A group of female regular exercisers (N = 97), and a second group of female nonexercisers (N = 159), completed the Menstrual Distress Questionnaire (MDQ) and the Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV) premenstrually, menstrually and intermenstrually. The present study attempted to replicate Boyle's (1986a; Psychological Reports, 59, 503â510) factor analytic findings on two self-report multidimensional mood-state measures, namely the Eight State Questionnaire (8SQ), and the Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV), to demonstrate the utility of MDS to uncover the underlying structure of each instrument, and to investigate further the correspondence across the two scales. The results indicated that there are at least four major typological mood-state dimensions within the normal state domain. Depressive symptomatology was as- conclusions. The DES was formulated to gouge the emotional state of individuals at that specific point in time when they are responding to the instrument. Both three- and five-factor solutions were taken out for comparative purposes. Single-occasion R-, technique is appropriate when working with stable trait dimensions, but is less than. Research into a paradigm of human personality first requires the taxonomic delineation of normal and abnormal personality trait constructs, dynamic (motivation) traits, and transitory (emotional/mood) states. Use of dR-technique is important when working with states, as, thereby confounding both state and trait measurement variance. & Vogelmann, S. (1977). Evidence of reliability and validity has been provided by Boyle [25,26]. Distortions in a commonly used factor analytic, Loo, R. (1979). Most of the DES-IV subscales were found to lie in close proximity, suggesting inadequate separation. measures, namely the Eight State Questionnaire (SSQ), and the Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV), to demonstrate the utility of MDS to uncover the underlying structure of each instrument, and to investigate further the correspondence across the two scales. Manual for the Eight State questionnaire. Construction of modern objective (T-data) personality test measures would greatly help to minimise the subjectivity of the current plethora of introspective, item-transparent self-report questionnaires and/or rating scales. & Kotsch, N.E. Factor 2 exhibited significant loadings on the, 8SQ subscale of Depression and also Fatigue versus Extraversion and Arousal (a Fatigue-, Joy/Surprise versus Anger, Disgust, Contempt and Guilt, suggestive of a Friendliness versus, with significant loadings on Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Regression and Guilt. presented in Table 1. Cattell's approach (including both his elaborate VIDAS systems model as well as his modulation theory and state-liability trait theory) continues to offer a general framework for understanding many controversies still faced today in relation to specific themes and problems in personality psychology. Kline, P. (1979). In the present study, a combined scale-factoring of the two instruments is undertaken on a sample of 450 college students. Both measures are purported to index some of the major emotions evident in human behaviour. The Resource Differential Emotions Scale Differential Emotions Scale. factors from both the DES-IV and the SSQ have yielded somewhat inconsistent results. Two instruments designed to measure fundamental emotions are the Eight State Questionnaire and the Differential Emotions Scale. in practice, may provide too complex a picture to be of benefit in many applied and research settings. Chicago: University of, Izard, C.E., Dougherty, F.E., Bloxom, B.M. & Kline, P. (1982). Research groups using the Differential Emotions Scale (DES) have also begun to use the DES or derivative measures in children as young as 5 years old, raising questions about the psychometric performance of the measure across the life span. Eysenck has studied the personality domain in terms of a typological model involving a small number of important superfactors. Nie, N.H., Hull, C.H., Jenkins, J.G., Steinbrenner, K. & Bent, D.H. (1975). The major limitation of many of these measures is the use of somewhat arbitrary and restricted timeframes instructions. These higher-order factors include the mood states relating to Extraversion, Neuroticism, Hostility and Arousal-Fatigue. The Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV) and the Eight State Questionnaire (8SQ) are two separately developed multidimensional instruments purported to index simultaneously a number of fundamental emotional/mood states. & Golder, P.A. Use of, require attention to both the construction of such scales, and the further elucidation. the final rotated solution to maximum simple structure (Cattell, 1978; Gorsuch, 1983; Kline, study, suggested that the previous analysis was based on one factor too many. & Cattell, R.B.

New York: Plenum. with a description of ten representative positive emotions, alongside approaches for assessing them, both directly with the modified Differential Emotions Scale and indirectly through physiological and implicit measures. Finally, Factor 5 might be interpreted as a, Contempt variables. As fundamental emotions arc at the Cattellian source-state level. Two of the best multivariate mood-state scales are the Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV) and the Eight State Questionnaire (SSQ). Next, it offers the seeds of the broaden-and-build theory, including work on the undo effect of positive emotions. provides only a special resolution of the vast array of possible rotational outcomes. For practical use, a model based on second-, typological mood-state dimensions would be useful. While the subscale descriptions differ somewhat across the two measures, nevertheless, some apparent commonalities exist, although in … Thus, the third factor in, divided between Factors 2 and 4 in the earlier study. However, if this was done, it would still leave the four major dimensions of Neuroticism. The. Nevertheless, the appropriate dR-factor analytic methodology has not always been employed, and even when it has (e.g. SHAME, GUILT, AND HOSTILITY INWARD SUBSCALES OF THE DIFFERENTIAL EMOTIONS SCALE–IV (DES-IV) Izard, C.

The regular exercisers obtained significantly lower scores on impaired concentration, negative affect, behaviour change and pain. (1986a). These findings are compared with higher-order factors obtained previously for the Differential Emotions Scale (DES), an instrument which is also purported to measure fundamental human emotions. 1. A smaller number of, advantage of avoiding trait contamination variance in the resulting factor solution. (1985b). Results indicate further abnormal typological mood-state factors in addition to those previously delineated within the (normal) mood-state sphere. In. (1966). This study examined the effects of regular, moderate exercise on mood states and menstrual cycle symptoms. The DES-IV is an instrument evaluating the phenomenological experience of 12 trait-emotions.

The Cattellian Psychometric Model is such an empirically-derived taxonomy of factor-analytically elucidated psychological constructs. Here, we aimed to assess dream emotions and their relationships with wake emotions through the modified Differential Emotions Scale (Fredrickson, 2003), which includes a broad array of both positive and negative emotions. The resulting subscale intercorrelations were subjected to a, mood-state factors corresponded to the four factors found in the later study, except that two, factors were split into separate subfactors. 12 fundamental emotions, discernible in the facial expressions of infants: Surprise, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, Contempt, Hostility, Fear, Shame, Shyness, and Guilt. Join ResearchGate to find the people and research you need to help your work. The use of multivariate mood-state scales has recently become quite popular. Multivariate analyses of covariance (MANCOVAs) revealed significant effects for exercise on negative mood states and physical symptoms, and significant effects on all measures across menstrual cycle phase. London: Kline, P. (1987). Orthogonal rotation provides only a specific instance of the, rotational solutions possible with oblique strategies. Crocker, L. & Algina, J. Altogether, 14 iterations of, -IV subscales labelled Sadness, Hostility, Fear, Shame, Shyness and Guilt, as well as a. If derived factors are really orthogonal, this is demonstrated, factors. The Differential Emotions Scale—IV (DBS), a 37-item self-report measure designed to measure Izard's 12 fundamen-tal emotions, was administered to 145 children and adolescents aged 10-17 years. (1988). The Eight State Questionnaire (8SQ) is purported to index Anxiety, S. Regression, Fatigue, Guilt, Extraversion and Arousal. Results suggest that six typological factors account for most of the variance measured in the 20 separate subscales of the combined instruments. Curran, J.P. & Cattell, R.B. Abstract Izard's Differential Emotions Scale (DES) was administered to 204 University of Delaware undergraduates under each of four imaginal mood-induction conditions (labelled: General Depression, Curiosity, Specific Depression and Anxiety) and an actual pre-exam condition.

It is inadvisable to merely assume orthogonality and to proceed with, for, example, Varimax rotation, when no test of this has been undertaken through an initial, oblique rotation (Loo, 1979).

The present study explores more thoroughly this issue of typological mood-state factors in the 8SQ using a large sample of 470 subjects. Estimation of measurement redundancy across the Eight State, Boyle, G.J. Lee & Comrey (1979, p. 301) have shown that failure to iterate (as in the principal, components method) results in a factor solution containing spurious common factor, variance. The present paper provides the point of departure for advancing measurement and research based on a more parsimonious Neo-Cattellian Psychometric Model. No differences were found between groups on positive affect and other physical symptoms. orthogonality is imposed arbitrarily on the data (Boyle, 1985b, 1988; Ca, Gorsuch, 1983; Kline, 1987). Differential Emotions Scale 39 refers to this as the "emotion trait" form or DES-II) rather than instructions asking for magnitude of emotions at one time (the "emotion state" form or DES-I). In order to quantify the measurement redundancy across the two scales, and to elucidate the content similarities and differences of the 8SQ and DES-IV subscales, both multipleâ¢ regression and canonical-redundancy analyses were computed for all 450 subjects. Attempts to derive higher-order mood-state factors from both the DES-IV and the 8SQ have yielded somewhat inconsistent results. (1982). Multivariate, Cattell, R.B.

Resource Information The item Differential Emotions Scale represents a specific, individual, material embodiment of a distinct intellectual or artistic creation found in Boston University Libraries. Several multidimensional measures of state-trait affect dimensions have been reviewed, including the Melbourne Curiosity Inventory (MCI); the State-Trait Personality Inventory (STPI); the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule - Extended (PANAS-X); the Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV); the Profile of Mood States (POMS-2); the Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist - Revised (MAACL-R); the Eight State Questionnaire (8SQ); the Multidimensional Mood-State Inventory (MMSI); the Activation-Deactivation Adjective Check List (AD-ACL); the UWIST Mood Adjective Checklist (UMACL); and the Dundee Stress State Questionnaire (DSSQ).

(1981). factors (Cattell, 1966); see Design and Procedure section-, factors should be extracted. Differential emotions theory (DET) packs the infant. Clearly, a small.er set of mood-type factors would provide greater economy of measurement and administration time. Following Kline's suggestion that Cattell's model comprising 92 primary factors needed simplification, the present paper reports on a series of programmatic factor-analytic studies reducing the model down to just 30 separate factors, enabling construction of a whole suite of modern neo-Cattellian instruments. MDS provides a readily interpretable representation of empirical relationships between different sets of data. The two instruments combined quantify some 20 primary mood states, which. measurements being involved instead of only one). According to Cattell (1978, p. 62), the K-G method, studies on plasmodes (where the variables being factor analysed are previously known, such, as weight, size and elasticity, or length, breadth and height of physical objects) to be more, third Scree line needs to be drawn. The Differential Emotions Scale: DES IV-A ; [a Method of Measuring the Meaning of Subjective Experience of Discrete Emotions] A total of 213 community-dwelling participants completed a questionnaire including the French version of the DES-IV and measures of depression, anxiety, life satisfaction, resilience, and the five factors of personality. (1987). A unique oblique solution can be, attained using the Â±.10 hyperplane count as an estimate of the degree of approximation of. In order to cope with this need for positive emotions measurement, Izard ’s (1977) Differential Emotions Scale (1982). Virtually all students, -born, although a minority (less than 30%) had parents who were first, the students' usual lecturers. & Comrey, A.L. While the interrelationships between multivariate measures of mood states have been analysed using various statistical procedures including exploratory factor analysis, discriminant function analysis, multiple regression analysis, and canonical-redundancy analysis, the techniques of Multidimensional Scaling (MDS) however, have been used less extensively in psychometric research. Scores for each emotion could range from 3 to 15, with higher scores Clearly, there is a continuum of response timeframes ranging all the way from brief situationally-sensitive emotional states (that may change several times throughout the day), through longer-lasting moods (that remain somewhat stable over a period of a week or even months), to long-lasting enduring dispositional traits (that persist over many years, or even the lifespan). and the Differential Emotions Scale (DES-IV). Izard's Differential Emotions Scale (DES) was administered to 204 University of Delaware undergraduates under each of four imaginal mood-induction conditions (labelled: General Depression, Curiosity, Specific Depression and Anxiety) and an actual pre-exam condition.
