An Overview of Mood-induction Methods

Inducing desired mood states in participants experimentally has been one of the standard paradigms in emotion research. A series of mood induction procedures (MIPs), including emotional picture MIP, music MIP, olfactory stimuli MIP, computer game MIP, facial/gesture feedback MIP were reviewed. Influencing factors, such as individual differences were analyzed. Then, after describing and evaluating current techniques for inducing pride in the laboratory, a modified pride-induction method named simulated competition was introduced.
