Abstract:This paper, building forth on of the work of Evers et al, attempts to find answers for the paradox of emotional response coherence. Emotions are often attributed as tools for the promotion of human survival, but replicating coherence of emotional responses in experiments often yields mixed results between different studies. This suggests that either the processing of emotional responses might be less consistent than previously anticipated, or that measurement irregularities are responsible for the incoherent results. Adopting a dual process framework methodology in analysis, separating the measurement of emotional coherence into two different systems of measuring, is speculated to improve the coherence of results. However, the correlation results found in the dual process framework research of Evers et al. seems to suggest that only moderate coherence connections exist and not all components of such a system seem to coerce evenly. Thus, the goal of this paper is to identify if another variable besides the method of data measuring and analysis influences response coherence. The particular variable of interest; Valence, is examined to possibly explain the variance in response coherence.
