The article, based on the theory of Barbara Fredrickson (1998), shows the connection of positive emotions (satisfaction, joy) and negative emotions (sadness, disgust) with positive orientation, the belief that life is a zero- sum game and emerging ruminations. Emotions were induced by means of multimedia induction, one for each of the emotions. Dependent variables were measured using the “Positive Orientation” questionnaires by Łaguna, Oleś i Filipiuk (2011), “Scale of Belief in a Zero-sum Game” by Różycka and Wojciszke (2010) and “Ruminations Questionnaire” Baryły and Wojciszke (2005). 120 students took part in the study (59 men and 61 women at the age of M=22.4). The results show that the strongest of the variables measured are joy and sadness, but also – in the case of ruminations – disgust. In addition, practical implications useful in the professional work of the psychologist have been described.
