Affective Experience Over Time: the Role of Event Representation and Counting Direction

We identified how event representation (segregation vs. integration) and counting direction systematically alter affective experience over time. We show that segregating an affective episode with integers, unlike integrating it with progress bars, increased enjoyment when the subcomponents were counted downward. Conversely, when the subcomponents were counted upward, this effect reversed.
