In the 1960s, the Schachter-Singer theory ...
A related distinction is between the emotion and the results of the emotion, principally behaviors and emotional expressions. People often behave in certain ways as a direct result of their emotional state, such as crying, fighting or fleeing. If one can have the emotion without the corresponding behavior, then we may consider the behavior not to be essential to the emotion. Neuroscientific research suggests there is a "magic quarter second" during which it's possible to catch a thought before it becomes an emotional reaction. In that instant, one can catch a feeling before allowing it to take hold. The ...

In a very general sense, my research focuses on the immediate, episodic experiences of people while at work. So, we have been studying people’s emotional states at work, what influences these states and how they in turn influence immediate work behaviors and longer term work attitudes. This has led us to begin studying “off task thinking” or attentional focus at work, encompassing such topics as daydreaming, rumination, stimulus independent thought, etc. Our research questions are how off-task thinking interferes with performance, how such thinking is driven by emotional states, and how people are or are not able to ...
