Mood and Behavior Perception: Dysphoria Can Increase and Decrease Effortful Processing of Information.
Lassiter, G. Daniel; And Others
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v22 n8 p794-810 Aug 1996
Five studies examined the effect of dysphoric mood on perceivers' subjective unitization of an observed other's ongoing behavior into discrete meaningful actions. Dysphoria generally reduced unitization rate (i.e., number of actions discriminated). Additional evidence indicates this reduction results from failure to initiate a higher (more effortful) unitization rate rather than inability to achieve such a level of processing. (KW)
