Abstract : A Mood Adjective Check List (MACL) was developed on the basis of factor analytic methods, which yielded twelve hypothetical dimensions of mood. Mood scores and changes in mood score were studied in relation to such environmental and psychological features as stressful motion picture films and communications, examinations, other films, social isolation, amount and quality of sleep, temperament traits, and sex differences. The usefulness and limitations of the MACL and of the concept of mood are discussed. (Author)
