SCALES

State Mood

Total Scale

This summary score represents overall State depressed mood and feelings. It represents the total number of adjectives, both positive and negative valence, endorsed by the respondent in the criterion (i.e., depressed) direction according to how the respondent feels right now. These two components of State depressed mood are measured by two subscales.

Negative

This subscale represents the degree of State negative mood and is referred to as State-Negative Mood (S-Neg). The S-Neg subscale raw score is calculated by summing the negative valence adjectives that were endorsed according to State instructions.

Positive

This subscale represents the degree of State positive or elevated mood and is referred to as State-Positive Mood (S-Pos). The S-Pos subscale raw score is calculated by summing the positive valence adjectives that were endorsed according to State instructions.

Trait Mood

Total Scale

This summary score represents overall Trait depressed mood and feelings. It represents the total number of adjectives, both positive and negative valence, endorsed by the respondent in the criterion (i.e., depressed) direction according to how the respondent feels in general.

Negative

This subscale represents the degree of Trait negative mood and is referred to as Trait-Negative Mood (T-Neg). The T-Neg subscale raw score is calculated by summing the negative valence adjectives that were endorsed according to Trait instructions.

Positive

This subscale represents the degree of Trait positive or elated mood and is referred to as Trait-Positive Mood (T-Pos). The T-Pos subscale raw score is calculated by summing the positive valence adjectives that were endorsed according to Trait instructions
