The authors examined how maximizing and minimizing responses to positive events were associated with sustained positive feelings about the events and adjustment. The results indicated maximizing responses were related to more intense feelings about the events one week later. Minimizing responses were associated with internalizing and externalizing behaviors over and above coping with negative events. The findings indicated that adolescents can maximize or capitalize on positive events but minimizing is linked to poorer adjustment.
