Summary/Abstract: The aim of our 2-stage study was to test: 1) the relationships between action orientation and two emotion regulation strategies: reappraisal and suppression, 2) the relationship between action orientation and hedonic tone after negative emotional state induction. In a second stage of the study there was an additional moderating variable: experimental activation of either reappraisal or suppression. To measure the variables in a group of students (men and women), we used the Polish versions of Gross and John’s Emotion Regulation Questionnaire, Kuhl’s Action Control Scale, and Matthews, Jones and Chamberlain’s Mood Adjective Checklist. The results indicate that action orientation is positively related to habitual use of reappraisal. Moreover, in a situation requiring emotion regulation (eliciting a negative state), action orientation turned out to be a positive predictor of hedonic tone. Further analysis, however, indicated that action orientation was not significantly related to hedonic tone when participants were instructed to suppress.
