KAMENETZKY, G. V et al. Frustration Response in Humans. Ter Psicol [online]. 2009, vol.27, n.2, pp. 191-201. ISSN 0718-4808. doi: 10.4067/S0718-48082009000200005.
Frustration is an emotional state elicitated by the unexpected reduction or suppression of appetitive reinforcers. In this article studies of frustration with humans are presented, in which food, monetary, social reinforcers and entertainment games are either omitted, devaluated or interrupted. The majority of the experimental results are analogous to the results founded with non-human subjects, though they add information about human reactions such as verbal reports, facial expressions, and how these responses are regulated by the contribution of attribution styles and personality. Finally, the possibility of categorizing frustration as one of the basic emotions is also discussed.
