Existing studies recovered that, positive emotion and negative emotion have different effect on executive function. Whether emotions have promoted cognition or inhibit cognition still confuse researchers who have different attitude on it. However, there is few researches on personality in the relationship of emotion and cognition. The present study introduced attachment style as a variable and recovered relationship between emotion and executive functions as to different attachment style.As for subjects with different attachment style, emotion has different effects on performance of task switching. 48 college students (elected from 158 questionnaire )who attended Research 1 are divided into 4 groups: secure attachment group, avoidant attachment group, resistant attachment group, disorganised attachment group. Each group received switching task(executive task) in condition of 3 emotions(positive, neutral, negative).The results are showed that: there is no obvious difference of switch cost among different emotions. Emotion type and attachment style have significant interactive effects on switch cost. 76 college students (elected from 196 questionnaire ) were experimented in Research 2. Telephone research standardization procedure was used to investigate reception to psychology experiments. Results showed that, college students with different attachment style behaved different. Subjects in low anxious score agreed to presence in the experiment are more than subjects in high anxious score. Among college students who agreed to presence, subjects in high anxious and avoidant score communicated with experimenter for a shorter time than subjects in high anxious score and low avoidant score.These results tell us, we must consider personality when research relationship between emotion and executive function. When recruiting subjects, we should consider their attachment style.
