Profiles of positive and negative affect and their relationships to problems with adaptions (English)
Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning antyder att människor kan grupperas i fyra affektprofiler som består av hög eller låg positiv affekt och hög eller låg negativ affekt. Studiens syfte var att undersöka dessa fyra olika affektprofiler och deras relation till tre adaptationsproblem; sömnbesvär, depression samt ångest. För att besvara syftet användes data från 2370 deltagare från en svensk population där hänsyn till sjukdomsprevalensen inte togs. Resultatet visade signifikanta skillnader mellan affektprofilernas relationer till adaptationsproblemen. Dem självdestruktiva individerna rapporterade högst värde av adaptationsproblemen följt av hög affektiva, låg affektiva och självförverkligande individer. Turordningen gällde vid alla adaptationsproblem. Med hänsyn till dessa adaptationsproblem så verkar typ av affektprofil vara av stor betydelse för individers vardagsliv. Tänkbara framtidsstudier inom området diskuterades också i studien.

Abstract [en]

Earlier research suggests that individuals can be grouped into four different affect profiles based on high or low levels of positive affect and high or low negative affect. The purpose of the present research was to study the four affect profiles and their respective relationship to three different problems in adaption; sleep problems, depression and anxiety. In order to answer the purpose of the study, data from 2370 individuals from a Swedish population, were the disease prevalence were not considered, were used. The results in the present study show significant differences between the different profiles of affect and their respective relationships to adjustment problems. The self-destructive individuals showed the highest value in regard to the problems with the adaption’s, followed by the high affective, the low affective and the self-actualizing individuals. This sequence was the same for all profiles of affect regarding problems of adaptions. The results reported supported the idea that affect profiles may have importance in individual's everyday life adjustment. Future studies within this area were also discussed.
