Overview of Measuring Mood, Meta-Mood, and Empathy

People experience a wide variety of subjective experiences related to emotion and mood.

  • Mood concerns an individual's long term emotional states.
  • Meta-mood (also known as meta-experience or reflective experience of mood) concerns a person's thoughts and feelings about his or her mood(s).
  • Emotional empathy refers to the understanding and responsiveness to another person's emotional experience.

This area of the site provides several scales that measure such qualities. These scales have been published (or their results reported) in the scientific literature and are offered here to responsible researchers freely for download.
