Chris,

I was wondering is anyone has come across work looking at the emotional 
response people have to programming?


What emotions are you interested in?
This study looked at risk attitude of professional developers
as an explanation for coding decisions:

I have been running some studies with undergrads and looking at the emotion 
they report they experience and why. I'm hoping to locate this the literature 
an it is proving quite tricky to search for in digital libraries!

Enjoyment is a much underrated emotion in all work activities
(at least for the people who are good at it).
