The PAD Emotion Scales, when used in the software package, supply a highly useful and convenient assessment of consumer emotional reactions to services, products, or combinations of products and services. Reactions of 50-100 consumers are obtained to each stimulus of interest. For example, consumer reactions might be obtained to two different digital camera models, to an automobile under development and a competitor’s automobile model, three different advertisements under consideration, or to different names under consideration for a particular product. The software averages responses of consumers to each stimulus and thus quickly and easily highlights differences in consumer emotional reactions to the stimuli being compared. For instance, color schemes or decor of a store can be made to increase or decrease arousal of customers.
And, whereas high arousal might be in line with consumer expectations and preferences in some stores, the opposite could be the case for other types of shopping environments. Additionally, dominance-submissiveness reactions of consumers to services could shed light on the quality of consumer experience. Importantly, dominance may be the desired consumer reaction for some, whereas submissiveness may be the preferred reaction in other, service or product situations. Or, and even more importantly, PAD constellations expected by consumers might depend on consumer income and age levels. Such expectations can be obtained for targeted groups differing in age, income, or educational categories. PAD values should help provide guidelines on ways in which a product or service can be modified to enhance consumer preferences and satisfaction.
The PAD Emotion Scales and Software are currently available in Spanish and German. An important application of the PAD Emotion Scales is in their use to quickly and easily measure the emotional climate created by corporate cultures. The scales can be used to ascertain employee emotional reactions to the conditions within their specific work groups, the broader divisions in which they are employed, their reactions to supervisory policies, reactions to co-workers, and so forth. Pinpointing the emotional impact of corporate culture can be critical for understanding levels of worker satisfaction, morale, absenteeism, or productivity. PAD Emotion Scales to investigate relations among the Pleasure, Arousal, and Dominance dimensions of the PAD with worker reports of their levels of satisfaction. D institutions is crucial for improving productivity, but may appear particularly difficult to measure.
However, when such cultures are examined within the PAD framework, it is not only easy to conceptualize and inexpensively assess those cultures, but also to do so in a way that allows workers to provide confidential responses so that results won’t be contaminated by worker apprehensions about supplying honest, negative reports. The PAD Emotion Scales readily lend themselves to the evaluation of user interface effectiveness of products and software. Suggestions regarding product and software interface design given in the following two links can be augmented and tested by using the PAD Emotion Scales. I will only outline the requirements for such a project.
In the case of two-dimensional displays, for instance, a figure can be displayed with discrete ranges of movements or positions assigned to arms, legs, torso, face, and position relative to another entity. 90 degrees, neck bent down at 45 degrees, etc. 15 degrees, torso bent forward at 30 degrees, etc. Considering that very large numbers of combinations will be possible, intuitive judgments will be needed to select the most meaningful combinations of positions for the figures.
Even then, the possible number of figure positions can easily run into the hundreds. Once a set of figure positions is available and each of these positions can be generated and displayed individually with a computer program, then the PAD Emotion Scales software can be used to ascertain the emotional impact of each figure position. This is the most labor intensive part of the project and will require at least a sample of 50 respondents to independently use the PAD software to score the emotion conveyed by each figure position. The program will search its database for figure positions that emit the required PAD values for that particular emotion and will then move the two-dimensional figure or three-dimensional robot to the position that corresponds to that PAD combination. Considering that these computer operations will be performed within fractions of a second, display figures will be able to respond to commands and express human-like emotions varying in nuance rapidly and easily. The labor-intensive segment of obtaining respondent ratings using the PAD software can also be computerized.
