I believe it is very ridiculous to imagine our executive could wipe out over
3000 TAXPAYERS and TAXPAYING businesses, or supply substantial tax writeoffs to the
damaged companies.
Now, if it were homeless shelters or govt housing projects--that I
may think. Our executive cannot squeeze a lot funds out of the negative and would
be prepared to sacrafice them. the folks within the Towers, the planes and the
Pentagon have been ordinarily the kind of wallets the govenment values.
Our executive values not anything over our funds.

Example text

Similar conclusions were reached in more recent experimental studies based on naturally occurring moods by Jack Mayer (see also chapter by Mayer, this volume). Although this review of early empirical research on affect and judgments is by no means complete, it is clear that there was considerable if scattered evidence for affect congruence in a variety of domains. How were these effects theoretically explained? The next section considers two of the dominant early theoretical accounts linking affect and social cognition: the psychoanalytic account and the conditioning account.

Both psychodynamic and conditioning theories can also be criticized for their inability to explain how multiple sources of affective and nonaffective information can be combined and integrated as people produce a social judgment (Abele & Petzold, 1994; Kaplan, 1991). Ultimately, these theories failed to provide a convincing and comprehensive explanation of the relationship between affect and social cognition because they lacked a well-articulated model of the precise mental operations involved.

The results were explained by Feshbach and Singer (1957) as due to fearful subjects using the defense mechanism of "projection" to relieve affective pressure, and in so doing they allowed their judgments of others to be infused by their own emotional state. In their words, "suppression of fear facilitates the tendency to project fear onto another social object" (p. 286).
