Embodied emotions: the Bodily reaction component

Author
Organization
Abstract
The results of the statistical analyses of the bodily reaction features are described. Three cross-culturally stable component factors are identified: distress symptoms, autonomic arousal, and body temperature, accounting for 75.5% of the overall variance. These results confirm earlier hypotheses on bodily reaction patterning. Using the three factor scores as independent variables, 45.1% of the emotions can be correctly classified in a multiple discriminant analyses, suggesting that emotion word meanings reflect emotion-specific patterning of bodily reactions. We show evidence that the patterns of bodily reactions are well reflected in the major dimensions of feeling.
