Emotions and Russian adjectives. 1. Adjectives related to vision, hearing, taste and olfaction

1070

Abstract

The research is based on the proposition that language as an instrument of report about behavioral results represents the structure of individual experience which actualization underlies the behaviour. It has been found that characteristics of hedonic assessment of adjectives are related to the degree of behaviour differentiation described by these adjectives. Our data indicate that adjectives related to behavior based predominantly on the usage of olfaction and taste are rated as arousing more intensive emotions and they are rated faster than adjectives related to behavior based predominantly on the usage of vision and hearing. Adjectives related to behavior arousing more intensive emotions are rated faster than adjectives related to behavior arousing less intensive emotions. Adjectives related to behavior arousing positive emotions are rated faster than adjectives related to behavior arousing negative emotions. It can be concluded that participants rate adjectives faster and report more intensive emotions when actualizing less differentiated behavior compared to more differentiated behavior.
