Affective states have a highly important, yet little understood influence on how people think about, remember, and respond to social situations. Contributions from leading psychologists in the field review and integrate the most recent work on the role of affect in social life. They offer new insights on the fundamental links between affect and cognition, and report recent research and theories illustrating how affective states can play a subtle and often subconscious role in guiding peoples' thoughts, memories, judgments, attitudes and behaviors in social situations. The insights offered in this book have major implications for several applied fields where the links between feeling, thinking and behavior are of interest, such as clinical, counseling, health and organizational psychology.
