Visual Representation and the Prediction of Emotion
Unformatted Document Text:  16 Participants evaluated their responses based on the following statements using the 1-7scale: it scared me, it made me nervous, it depressed me, it worried me, it made me sad, it disturbed me, it made me feel good, it was interesting, it was upsetting, it was uplifting, it was frightening, it was heartwarming, and it was funny. Hypotheses The regression analysis was designed to test three hypotheses predicting the relationships between the content in the photographs and the emotional experiences of viewers. Hypothesis 1: The more negative an image is, the greater the emotional impact that will be reported by viewers. Hypothesis 2: The greater number of deviations from normal visual experience present in the image, the greater the emotional impact that will be reported by viewers. Hypothesis 3: The more intimacy that exists between the subjects and viewer of the image and the more intimacy that is conveyed among the subjects of the image, the greater the emotional impact that will be reported by viewers. Regression Analysis Results A series of generalized least squares regression procedures comprised the method of analysis for the data. For a complete explanation of this method, please see Appendix A. Before the actual regressions could be carried out, the responses to the individual emotional scales had to be combined into two separate scales: one for positive affect and one for negative affect.

Participants evaluated their responses based on the following statements using the
1-7scale: it scared me, it made me nervous, it depressed me, it worried me, it
made me sad, it disturbed me, it made me feel good, it was interesting, it was
upsetting, it was uplifting, it was frightening, it was heartwarming, and it was
funny.
Hypotheses
The regression analysis was designed to test three hypotheses predicting
the relationships between the content in the photographs and the emotional
experiences of viewers.
Hypothesis 1: The more negative an image is, the greater the emotional impact
that will be reported by viewers.
Hypothesis 2: The greater number of deviations from normal visual experience
present in the image, the greater the emotional impact that will be reported by
viewers.
Hypothesis 3: The more intimacy that exists between the subjects and viewer of
the image and the more intimacy that is conveyed among the subjects of the
image, the greater the emotional impact that will be reported by viewers.
Regression Analysis Results
A series of generalized least squares regression procedures comprised the
method of analysis for the data. For a complete explanation of this method,
please see Appendix A. Before the actual regressions could be carried out, the
responses to the individual emotional scales had to be combined into two separate
scales: one for positive affect and one for negative affect.
