On Recovering the Structure of Affect

A. Kapoor and M. Czerwinski

Abstract

Abstract—This paper presents one of the few human computation experiments geared towards uncovering the structure of affect. Using Mechanical Turk workers across two separate studies, we empirically verified some of the popular beliefs about the structure of affect, but also provide some new evidence. We replicate and reveal not only the statistical structure of dimensions of affect, but also the effect of cultural influences. We close with a proposition for a framework for doing this kind of large scale research and provide recommendations and opportunities for innovations in research around emotional theory.
