The Multifaceted Role of Affect in Self-Affirmation Effects

Although it has little direct influence on general affect, self-affirmation has a multifaceted relationship with general and specific affective experiences. We argue that positive affect buttresses (and negative affect minimizes) salutary effects of self-affirmation, and that self-affirmation increases task-related negative affect but also reduces impairment of performance by chronic stress.
