OLIVEIRA, Letícia Francisco de et al. Interaction between affective and spatial polarities: soccer preferences and stimulus-response compatibility. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2021, vol.15, n.3, pp. 1-17. ISSN 1982-1247.

The affective valence of visual stimuli elicits approach and avoidance reactions to positive and negative stimuli, respectively. In Simon task, the reaction time is shorter when the stimulus and the response are on the same side (corresponding condition) than when they are on opposite sides (non-corresponding condition). The difference between the reaction times is the Simon effect. This work investigated how the affective valences of the Favorite and Rival teams influence the Simon effect. The results showed a bigger Simon effect for the Favorite team, suggesting that the Favorite positive valence facilitates the corresponding response.

Keywords : Emotion; Soccer team; Reaction time; Affective valence; Simon Effect.
