Affective Expectations and Uncertainty Orientation: When Do Affective Expectations Stop Influencing Affective Reactions?

ABSTRACT - The Affective Expectations Model indicates that how much a person thinks they will enjoy an experience (affective expectation) is as important as what actually happens during the experience in determining his or her evaluation of the experience (affective reaction; Wilson, Lisle, Kraft, and Wetzel 1989). Affective expectations may also be used to re-interpret or selectively remember the experience (Klaaren, Hodges, and Wilson 1994). We propose that an individual’s approach to uncertain situations may determine the role of affective expectations.
