Application: Emotion, Observation, and Motivation
Emotions, like motivations are our body’s adaptive responses and increase our chance of survival. According to the James-Lange theory, a physiological response is followed by an emotion. As such, “we feel sorry because we cry, angry because we strike, afraid because we tremble” (James, 1890, p. 1066). Another popular theory, the Cannon-Bard theory, argues that emotion and the body’s response happen simultaneously. Hence, your heart starts pounding as you are feeling fear. Although these theories seemingly contradict, both show that our emotions and motivations are intimately intertwined.
