Most Underappreciated

Timothy D. Wilson

Oxford University Press

Timothy D. Wilson describes his most underappreciated work: a series of studies that focused on how people's affective expectations influenced their affective experiences. His findings showed that affective expectations influence the way people processed an event and their enjoyment of it, with assimilation effects being much more common than contrast effects. Wilson cites some of the reasons why these studies didn't get the attention he and his collaborators thought they deserved.

Keywords:   Timothy D. Wilson, affective expectations, affective experiences, assimilation effects, contrast effects
