Mood responses have been shown to be predictive of performance in sport and other performance environments. The Brunel Mood Scale (BRUMS) is a 24-item inventory to assess the six mood dimensions of anger, confusion, depression, fatigue, tension and vigor. Derived from the Profile of Mood States, the BRUMS was developed and validated specifically for use with athletes, although its applicability has now been extended to other populations. A range of normative data tables for the BRUMS is available, based on responses of more than 3,000 participants. This presentation chronicles the development of an online mood profiling website (, based on the BRUMS, that is also available for iPhone™ and iPad™. The website provides respondents with detailed automated reports of their mood responses, including raw scores, standard scores, graphic representation of mood profiles, interpretation of results for each mood dimension with reference to normative scores, a summary of the potential influence of mood responses on performance, and a series of evidence-based mood regulation strategies.
