The pivotal role of transient affect (i.e., mood) in human functioning is well established (Clore, Schwarz, & Conway, 1994; Fiedler & Bless, in press; Forgas, 1992, 1995). Mood influences judgment, memory, and behavior.1

Our review excludes experiments that involve misattribution of mood states or experiments that manipulate the degree to which participants are aware of their mood states (e.g., Clore, Gaspar, & Garvin, chap. 6, this volume; Smith, chap. 4, this volume; Levine, Wyer, & Schwarz, 1994; Martin, Abend, Sedikides, & Green, 1997). Also, our review excludes experiments in which the mood-induction task was actually a failure or success experience based on task performance feedback (e.g., McFarland & Buehler, 1997, 1998).
