Wintre, Maxine Gallander; Vallance, Denise D.
Developmental Psychology, v30 n4 p509-14 Jul 1994
In individual interviews, 80 children ages 4-8 predicted which of 5 emotions they would feel, and how intensely, to 15 affect-laden situations. Results indicated that responses involve three dimensions of emotion cognition (intensity, multiplicity, and valence) that emerge in four developmental stages. By age eight, children can predict multiple emotions of varying intensity and opposite valence. (MDM)
