Different ways to experience affectivity can influence the individual perception of time. The present study explores the relationship between cognitive and affective subjective well-being and temporal estimates of short images. Partecipants (N = 108, 83F) were asked to estimate the duration of 105 positive, negative and neutral images with a temporal bisectional task. Findings show that individuals with a recent negative affective state underestimate the duration of low-arousal neutral images while those with recent positive affective state underestimate positive images. In conclusion, an affective state but not cognitive well-being interacts with the valence and arousal of stimuli in influencing temporal estimation
