This article debates empirically about the affectivity’s paper in the organization of the human reasoning. The Thought Organization Models theory was utilized as the psychological foundation. It introduces part of some data of empiric research proveniences of a study of the Basic Psychology. In this research, they selected as sample 60 subjects of two schools in Campinas (São Paulo), asking them who answered to a conflictive situation in which a character asks R$10,00 to pay a mother's exam. The premise of the moral dilemma is then structured into two scenarios: the first is non-contextualized and the second is contextualized. In the non-contextualized scenario, there is no description whatsoever of the character involved in the dilemma. The contextualized scenario on the other hand, includes demonstrative affectionate descriptors both positive and negative in nature referent to the character. The third grade students responded to positive contextualized scenario and the second grade students to a negative contextualized scenario. After reading of the protocols, for discussion of the answers, were produced three analysis categories: the first corresponds help from subject to the character, the second that indicates the refusal in assist her third in which the subject does not know what to do and/or it has doubts. The data obtained substantiated that affection, found in the contextualized scenarios both negative and positive, favored the thought process of subjects, considerably modifying the manner in which it was organized in regards to the moral dilemma and to indicate a certain tendency in “if involve” with character's problem and searching thus avail her.
