Objective: Several factors have been shown to affect perceived durations. In the present study, we verified the hypothesis that emotional states induced by Persian words influence error in time perception.
Method: Sixty-three volunteer undergraduate female students of the University of Tabriz participated in the experiment. By means of a computerized test, a set of emotional Persian words rated for valence and arousal (using Self-Assessment Manikin - SAM) were projected to all participants for 2, 5 and 8 seconds. Two-factor ANOVA with repeated measures, one-way ANOVA, paired and independent t-tests were used to analyze data.
Results: A significant main effect of Emotion, and Duration was found. Emotion and Duration interaction effect was also significant. Emotional words (especially negative ones) assessed to be shorter than neutral ones (under-estimation error). Shorter perceived duration was greater for 2 second standard duration.
Conclusion: These findings indicate an effect of emotion on time perception. The results are interpreted in the framework of the attentional time perception and arousal time perception models.
