Based on real tests and laboratory simulations, the effect and mechanism of dispositional mindfulness on academic affective forecasting biases of junior high school students were investigated. The results showed that: (1) there were affective forecasting biases in academic field; (2) dispositional mindfulness affected the affective forecasting biases, and the affective forecasting biases of junior high school students with a high level of dispositional mindfulness were smaller, and vice versa; (3) attentional focus mediated the effect of dispositional mindfulness on affective forecasting biases. This study put forward the “amplification-bonding” interpretation model of mindfulness, which promoted the research of affective forecasting in academic field, and had good ecological validity and practical educational value.

Key words: affective forecasting biases, dispositional mindfulness, attentional focus, academic emotion, ecological validity
