In psychiatry, mood congruence is the congruence between feeling, or the emotion that a person is experiencing, and affect, or the manner in which that emotion is "presenting", or being expressed.

Examples:

  • Congruent mood - smiling while feeling happy.
  • Non-congruent mood - smiling while feeling anxious.
  • Inappropriate affect - laughing while describing a loved one's funeral, for instance.
