Most academics agree that emotions and moods are related but distinct phenomena. The present study assessed emotion-mood distinctions among a non-academic population and compared these views with distinctions proposed in the literature. Content analysis of responses from 106 participants identified 16 themes, with cause (65 percent of respondents), duration (40 percent), control (25 percent), experience (15 percent) and consequences (14 percent) the most frequently cited distinctions. Among 65 contributions to the academic literature, eight themes were proposed, with duration (62 percent of authors), intentionality (41 percent), cause (31 percent), consequences (31 percent) and function (18 percent) the most frequently cited. When the eight themes cited by both academics and non-academics were rank ordered, approximately 60 percent overlap in opinion was evident. A data-derived summary of emotion-mood distinctions is provided. These data should prove useful to investigators interested in developing a clearer scientific distinction between emotion and mood than is currently available.
