Foot Stomping and Eye Rolling

APPSY-XGTBIV

Sixteen-year-old Olivia Felderspar was offended at her mother’s comment yesterday. Since then, Olivia has consistently stomped around, forced a mean expression on her face and answered every question with short, clipped words such as “I’m fine." The comment was said over 30 hours previously, and even Olivia is surprised to find she is still mad. What theory would best describe why Olivia is still upset?

A

Yerkes-Dodson Theory

B

Shacter-Singer Theory

C

Canon-Bard Theory

D

James-Lange Theory

E

Selye-Singer Theory
