This study examined the moderating effect of autobiographical memory specificity on the relationship between responses to positive affect and depressive symptoms. Two hundred and sixty undergraduate students completed the Korean-Responses to Positive Affect Questionnaire(K-RPA), the Autobiographical Memory Test(AMT), and the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale(CES-D). The results indicated that autobio- graphical memory specificity moderated the relationship between positive rumination and depressive symptoms. That is, in groups with moderate and high autobiographical memory specificity, the depressive symptoms decreased with the increase of positive rumination. However, in groups with low autobiographical memory specificity, the depressive sym- ptoms did not decrease even as positive rumination increased. Dampening had a significant positive effect on depressive symptoms. Based on the results, the implications and limitat- ions of this study were discussed.
