According to the environmental impact, the conflict between competitive responses is monitored and conflict adaptation is triggered. There is no consensus on the impact of negative emotions on conflict adaptation effect (CAE). It is found that the relationship between emotion and conflict adaptation is affected by the correlation of conflict tasks of emotional stimulus under environmental impact and whether the control task itself stimulates or reacts to conflict. This study found that there was an interaction between task relevance of emotional stimuli and types of conflict tasks under environmental impact. Once conflict control occurs in the subsequent response phase, unrelated negative emotions may have disappeared. This may explain why unrelated emotional stimuli have no effect on CAE.
