Similarly, fear of cognitive dyscontrol may interact with expectancies that one will experience cognitive symptoms of anxiety. Fear of publicly observable anxiety reactions may interact with expectations that one will blush, tremble, sweat, and so on. These interaction terms may be superior to the interaction between anxiety expectancies and the higher order AS factor (as expressed in either Equations 1 or 2) in the prediction of fear, anxiety, panic, and avoidance. This possibility merits investigation.

Conversely, jIj (dEj+ g) represents an overprediction of anxiety. 06] page_29 < previous page page_29 next page > Page 29 anxiety is unexpected, moderately high when anxiety is accurately expected, and mild when anxiety is overpredicted. Note that the match-mismatch of expected and experienced anxiety is moderated by AS. Thus, the model simulates the results of Telch and Harrington (1994). It remains to be seen how well it performs on a new data set. Note that Ij in Equation 2 appears on both sides of the equation because it is implicit in F(S1).

Results provide limited support for the view that fear responding is a function of the interaction between AS and anxiety expectancy. Telch and Harrington (1994) investigated the interaction between AS and anxiety expectancy (defined as expectedness of arousal) by asking 39 high-AS and 40 low-AS college students to inhale a mixture of 35% CO2 and 65% O2. This harmless compound produces arousal-related bodily sensations and is a potent panicogen for people with high AS (McNally, 1994). Subjects were either told that the inhalation would produce a state of relaxation (expectancy of low arousal) or that it would produce a state of arousal (expectancy of high arousal).
