Appendix C: Attraction-Affect Model

Some people are considered attractive because they elicit a positive affect.

When any stimulus arouses an individuals positive affect, the stimulus is liked- positive arousal increases attraction.

The Affect-Attraction Model depicts the stimulus, emotional response and attraction response to positive and negative emotions.
