Correlate

Authors's label
Mood differentiation and complexity
Our Classification
Operationalization
P-technique factor analysis, using the highest, average and lowest mood reporting each day during 28 days on 14 Wessman & Ricks Personal Feeling Scales.
Four measures were deducted:

-   Percentage of variance explaining
    by the first factor (indicative of
    low differentiation and complex-
    ity).

-   Average correlation among mood
    ratings (indicative of a lack of
    differentiation).  

-   Number of factors needed to explain
    90% of the variance (indicative of
    high complexity and differentia-
    tion).

-   Number of factors explaining more
    than 10% of the variance each (in-
    dicative of high complexity and
    differentiation).
