Anger and Approach: Reply to Watson (2009) and to Tomarken and Zald (2009)
Carver, Charles S.; Harmon-Jones, Eddie
Psychological Bulletin, v135 n2 p215-217 Mar 2009
C. S. Carver and E. Harmon-Jones reviewed evidence consistent with the idea that anger arises from a behavioral approach system. Commentary on that article by A. J. Tomarken and D. H. Zald raised questions about the many elements involved in acts of approach and limitations on what information can be provided by electroencephalograms. Commentary by D. Watson raised questions about the extensive psychometric evidence linking the negative affects. This article responds briefly to these issues.
