Neuroticism and Dampened Pleasantness of Positive Memories

My name is Lisa J. Emery from Appalachian State University and I presented my research at the APS 23rd Annual Convention in Washington, DC.

College students recalled autobiographical memories using the word-cue technique, then rated how they felt about the memory when it occurred and at the present time. Results indicated that neuroticism was unrelated to current feelings when recalling negative memories. People high in neuroticism, however, felt less happy when recalling positive memories.
