Abstract

This paper aims to determine strategies used by adults to attribute a psychological state to a speaker in situations of communication when several cues carrying emotional valence are in opposition: Are they using the cues (context vs. prosody) or the emotional valence of the cues (positive vs. negative). Fifty adults performed a computerized judgment task, in which they were asked to complete stories. The stories varied according to context (happy or sad) and prosody (sad, happy). The results showed a strategy based on the emotional valence of cues, and the existence of a negative bias.
