They completed questionnaires to rate their emotionality and a memory test to measure which type of information (positive, negative or neutral) they remembered. The results confirm that the participants with high emotionality remembered either positive/negative stimuli or neutral, compared to children with low emotionality who didn't focus on any particular stimuli (p <.05).
