The present study is an attempt to search for connection between the efficiency of recognition of facial expressions of emotions and possitive vs negative style of affective. According to the Bower's 'mood-congruent recall' effect, it was assumed that individuals with the possitive affective style, will more accurately and efficiently distinguish happiness than anger various facial expressions of emotions. 36 volunteers (19 with positive style of affective and 17 with negative style of affective) recruited from the University of Lódz participated in the experiment. Affective styles were measured with the PANAS by Watson and Clark and BIS-BAS questionnaire by Carver and White. FOTOS experiment diagnosed the efficiency of recognitions of facial expressions of emotions. It occurred that participants with positive style of affective more accurately than participants with negative style distinguish the expression of facial emotions. The persons with positive style more accurately distinguish happiness than anger various facial expressions of emotions. The results indicate that short/long, LVF/ conditions influence of the accuracy of recognition of facial emotions.
