Results of simple effects analysis showed that, when the outcome had a positive valence, situational-promotion-focused participants evaluated the outcome as fairer when confronted with a gain than when confronted with a nonloss, [F.sub.(1, 448)] = 36.98, p < .001, [[eta].sup.2.sub.p] = 0.07.

On the other hand, neuroimaging studies have reported that extroversion was found to be correlated with low level of arousal [38] and correlated with positive valence, while neuroticism was correlated with high level of arousal and to negative valence [39].
Marketing theorists understand that consumers develop emotional attachments to food (14-17) and exert influence over them by manipulating presentation of foods (colour, size, shape and labelling), (10-12,18) presenting music in eating areas (19-22) and smells which stimulate saliva and memories, (10,23) to promote a positive valence toward food.
