Abstract
Some people differentiate a great deal between their emotional experiences, they report experiencing grief, sadness, frustration, anger etc. Other people seem to differentiate between their emotional experiences less, they report feeling good or bad. The ability to differentiate between emotions is called emotional granularity (EG). Previous studies have linked EG to higher psychological well-being and access to more emotion regulation strategies. In two studies an instrument to measure emotional granularity has been developed and tested. In the first study university students (n=469) rated which emotions they had felt during the last two days or in the present moment. From these ratings 25 emotions were chosen to form an instrument to... (More)

Abstract (Swedish)
Vissa personer skiljer mycket mellan sina känslor, de rapporterar att de känner ilska, frustration, ledsamhet och nedstämdhet, medan andra personer inte skiljer särskilt mycket mellan sina känslor, de rapporterar att de mår bra eller att de mår dåligt. Förmågan att skilja mellan sina känslor kallas emotionell granularitet (EG). Tidigare forskning har kopplat ihop EG med bättre psykisk hälsa och större tillgång till emotionsreglerande strategier. I två studier har ett instrument att mäta EG skapats och testats. I den första studien fick universitetsstudenter (n=469) skatta vika känslor som de hade känt de senaste två dagarna eller vilka känslor som de känner just nu. Från dessa skattningarna valdes 25 känsloord ut för att skapa instrumentet... (More)

I den första studien fick universitetsstudenter (n=469) skatta vika känslor som de hade känt de senaste två dagarna eller vilka känslor som de känner just nu. Från dessa skattningarna valdes 25 känsloord ut för att skapa instrumentet för att mäta EG. Detta instrument testades sedan på en grupp patienter inom psykiatrin (n=31) som genomgick en gruppbehandling. Studien hittade inga samband mellan instrumentets mått på EG och patienternas symptomnivå, behandlingsutfall eller grad av alexitymi. (Less)
