The Multiple Affect Adjective Checklist-Revised (MAACL-R) measures affect as both a temporary state (the “Today” or State Form) and more generally, as a disposition (“In General” or Trait Form). Both Forms are standardized scales that differentiate clients with affective disorder from those with other disorders and from “normals.”

MAACL-R Scales

Anxiety
Afraid, fearful, frightened, panicky, shaky, tense.

Depression
Alone, destroyed, forlorn, lonely, lost, miserable.

Hostility
Annoyed, critical, cross, cruel, disagreeable.

Positive Affect
This scale measures a positively valenced state/trait of low arousal, or calm. Adjectives included are happy, joyful, and pleasant.

Sensation Seeking
This scale measures a positively valenced state/trait of arousal, or positive level of activation. Adjectives included are adventurous, daring, and energetic.

The two composite scales are: Dysphoria (Dys = A+D+H) and Positive Affect and Sensation Seeking (PASS = PA+SS). A diagnostic study has indicated that the score Dys-PA is effective in discriminating patients with affective disorders from other patients and clients.
