Abstract

Affect was largely ignored in the organizational sciences until very recently. However, the impact of affect on dynamic process influencing workplace behavior is increasingly critical. This study employs the multi-way analytic techniques PARAFAC and the Tucker model in an attempt to clarify the three sources of variance in daily mood ratings. The 2 x 2 x 2 structure found here is largely consistent with work by Zevon and Tellegen (1982) and Tellegen, Watson, and Clark (1999), and bears on research into the nature of affective processes in workplace behavior.

Keywords: Mood, affect, Multi-way analysis, three-mode component analysis
