Effects on Academic Learning of Manipulating Emotional States and Motivational Dynamics.
Boyle, G. J.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v53 n3 p347-57 Nov 1983
An extremely unpleasant film was shown to one group of students, while another group served as controls. Results suggest that, under conditions of stressful emotional arousal, learning outcomes are influenced predominantly by the combined effects of personality traits, motivational dynamics, and emotional states, which outweigh the influence of intelligence, per se.
