Comments on an article, Complex affect dynamics add limited information to the prediction of psychological well-being by Dejonckheere et al. (2019). Dejonckheere and colleague’s paper is a welcome and rigorous addition to the ecological momentary assessment (EMA) literature. Combining 15 studies totaling over 1,700 participants, the authors examined 16 metrics of affect to determine their contributions to psychological well-being (life satisfaction) and symptoms of psychopathology. The authors report that mean levels of self-reported positive and negative affect account for the lion’s share of variance in emotional well-being. Measures of affective dynamics, save for affect variability, explained very little of the remaining variance in well-being or psychopathology. The authors conclude that current affective science using EMA cannot conclusively identify specific affect dynamic parameters that predict psychological well-being or depression. Critically, however, they acknowledge the possibility that anchoring EMA measurements to meaningful emotional contexts may lead to a different conclusion.
