Motivational Function of Emotions: Experimental Approach to Study (continued)

428

Abstract

The article presents an experimental study of human emotional motivation. Practical aspects of emotional motivation are considered on the example of educational and professional activities of university students. Emotion as an unconscious motive induces unintended actions of university students against different aspects of educational and professional activities. The practical part of the study was implemented by the author’s methodology “Test of Color Associations”. In terms of content and performance, the test meets the main provisions of the theoretical content of the stated topic. The experimental study identified four groups of emotions, reflecting their specific motivational capabilities, manifested in negative and positive unintended actions towards learning. Experimentally identified “creative emotions” (joy and interest), “emotions overcoming obstacles” (anger), “emotions that save energy” (pleasure, indifference), “emotions that destroy relationships” (fear, sadness, disgust).
