Abstract: The effects of two emotion regulation strategies, reappraisal and suppression, on subjective well-being (SWB) and cardiovascular reactivity (CVR), and the potential moderating role of ethnicity on these relationships were investigated. Results showed reappraisal to be an adaptive emotion regulation strategy, linked positively to SWB, and to more adaptive affective and physiological reactivity in response to a negative mood induction. This positive relationship holds for both genders and among Chinese and Indians. On the other hand, usage of suppression showed no correlation with SWB or cardiovascular reactivity during negative mood induction in our Asian samples. In addition, Chinese and Indians showed differences in their reappraisal usage and expression of emotions, which reflects socio-cultural influences on cognition and behavior. These results support the usefulness of the process model of emotion regulation in studying different regulatory strategies, but emphasize the need to adopt a socio-cultural perspective.
