From emotion to feeling: the internal structure of the Feeling component

Author
Organization
Abstract
We explain the operationalization of the feeling component, which was based on five frequently used approaches: the positive affect / negative affect model, the pleasure-arousal model, the tense arousal and energetic arousal model, the pleasantness-activation model, and the evaluation–potency–activation model. A dimensional analysis of the feeling features revealed a four-factor structure accounting for 90.7% of the total variance. A very strong bad vs good factor emerged followed by three smaller subsidiary factors: weak vs strong, calm vs restless, and tired. bad vs good and weak vs strong were strongly related to the overall valence and power dimensions respectively. both calm vs restless and tired were strongly related to the overall arousal factor. it was possible to correctly classify 47.2 % of the emotion terms across the 34 samples into one of the 24 emotion term categories on the basis of only these four feeling factors.
