The article, on the basis of Fredrickson’s theory (1998), presents the influence of positive (happiness, satisfaction) and negative emotions (sadness, repulsion) on the level of confidence in other people and the belief in a just world. It also includes the effectiveness comparison of the two methods of emotions induction used for the research (recalling of events and multimedia presentation). Moreover, practical implications of the received results were considered, indicating that experiencing of certain emotions influences not only human behaviour but it can also be crucial in changing the already existing beliefs about the surrounding world, at least for a while.
