In this paper, we propose two new frameworks, so as to boost the feature selection algorithms in a way that the selected features will be more informative in terms of class-separability. In the first framework, features that are more informative in discriminating an emotional class from the rest of the classes are favoured for selection by the feature selection algorithms. In the second framework features that more informative in terms of separating an emotional class from another one are favoured for selection. Then, final feature subsets are constructed from the subsets of selected features using intersection and unification operators. It will be shown that the proposed frameworks fulfill the objectives by considerably reducing average cross-validation error
