Abstract
The purpose of this study was to explore whether stress influences emotion induction. An independent group design was conducted where participants of the experiment group were exposed to a stress induction while the control group wrote a non-stress inducing task. Following the manipulation, a sequence from the film Wall-E was shown with the intention to induce positive emotions. Shortly after the participants rated their mood with Brief Mood Introspection Scale (BMIS). A sample of 41 people, mostly students from Lund University, participated in the study.
Previous research shows that stress causes illness as well as negative emotions. The study of emotions has proven complex but researchers have established that emotional states can be... (More)

Previous research shows that stress causes illness as well as negative emotions. The study of emotions has proven complex but researchers have established that emotional states can be altered through emotion induction. No evidence or research was found in the area of how stress affects emotion induction, presenting a gap in knowledge.
Considering this knowledge gap, a hypothesis was formulated and stated that “there will be a difference in self estimated emotions between the stress induced group and the non-stress induced group”. Comparing results of BMIS indicates no significant difference between the experiment and control group in scores of joy, arousal-calm and pleasant-unpleasant, therefore the hypothesis was neglected. Indicating that stress does not affect emotion induction. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Studiens syfte ämnade att undersöka huruvida stress påverkar emotionsinduktion. En independent group (oberoende grupp) design utformades med två grupper som tilldelades varsin betingelse bestående av antingen en manipulation av inducerad stress eller en icke-stressande uppgift. Detta följdes av en sekvens ur filmen Wall-E, som var menad att fungera som positiv emotionsinduktion. Efter filmklippet fick deltagarna skatta sitt tillfälliga emotionella tillstånd med enkäten Brief Mood Introspection Scale (BMIS). Ett urval på 41 personer, mestadels studenter vid Lunds Universitet, deltog i experimentet.

Studiens syfte ämnade att undersöka huruvida stress påverkar emotionsinduktion. En independent group (oberoende grupp) design utformades med två grupper som tilldelades varsin betingelse bestående av antingen en manipulation av inducerad stress eller en icke-stressande uppgift. Detta följdes av en sekvens ur filmen Wall-E, som var menad att fungera som positiv emotionsinduktion. Efter filmklippet fick deltagarna skatta sitt tillfälliga emotionella tillstånd med enkäten Brief Mood Introspection Scale (BMIS). Ett urval på 41 personer, mestadels studenter vid Lunds Universitet, deltog i experimentet.
Tidigare forskning har visat att stress inte bara leder till sjukdomar, det leder även till ett mer negativt emotionellt tillstånd. Forskning kring emotionell påverkan har bevisat att det går att ändra emotionellt tillstånd via validerade filmklipp. Vad som däremot saknas enligt våra efterforskningar är hur dessa båda områden samverkar.
Med det kunskapsglappet i åtanke har hypotesen “Det kommer att vara en skillnad i skattade emotioner mellan stress och icke-stress gruppen.” formulerats. Resultaten från BMIS uppvisar ingen signifikant skillnad på någon av de uppmätta variablerna; glädje, arousal-calm och pleasant-unpleasant. Undersökningens hypotes fick därmed inte stöd i experimentets resultat. (Less)
