Choose either Jim or Janice and respond to the following in a two to three paragraph cohesive response. Please do not simply answer the questions separately.

Choose one of the theories of emotion discussed in the readings (preferably one that has not been discussed by others as of yet). Explain step-by-step how that theory would apply to this situation.
