"Constructs are not simply cognitive; I suspect that certain
constructs are charged by physiological reactions which are
traditionally called emotions. Didn't James Mancuso put forward a
theory of love consistent my view!"

I am interested in a kind of definintion of 'charged' in the sense
it is used above. And wonder how this might be different from
thinking about emotions as internal events to be construed?
