Contrasting and categorization of emotions

Contrasting and categorization of emotions
The contrasting and categorisation of emotions describes how emotions are thought to relate to each other. Various recent proposals of such groupings are described in the following sections. Contrasting Basic Emotions[edit] The following table,[1] based on a wide review of current theories, identifies and contrasts the fundamental emotions according to a set of definite criteria. The three key criteria used include: 1) mental experiences that have a strongly motivating subjective quality like pleasure or pain; 2) mental experiences that are in response to some event or object that is either real or imagined; 3) mental experiences that motivate particular kinds of behaviour. HUMAINE's proposal for EARL (Emotion Annotation and Representation Language)[edit] The emotion annotation and representation language (EARL) proposed by the Human-Machine Interaction Network on Emotion (HUMAINE) classifies 48 emotions.[2] Parrott's emotions by groups[edit] Plutchik's wheel of emotions[edit] See also[edit] Related:  SCIENCE / ODDITIESUnderstanding Human Behavior

However, all this complexity did not leap fully-formed from the primordial soup. Simple organic molecules were formed. Multicellularity evolved. You’ve Got Plenty Of Time Yes, you do. I’ve caught myself whispering this in my own ears frequently during the last few days. And it worked. It worked because it is true, despite how everything seems to indicate just the opposite. I am currently in the process of moving and it is amazing to see what little, seemingly unimportant things can trigger stress. I want my new place to be finished as soon as possible. I don’t remember where I read this, or if I made it up myself, but it was something along the lines of ‘the common denominator of stress is the felt experience of not having enough time‘. The more we worry about time, the more time is lost to worrying.Tweet Every single time I got annoyed that something wasn’t going as intended, the will I enforced upon the world seemed to be futile; I felt rushed and powerless. Why? But, I did! Yet, in the midst of this big task I selectively forgot that this was the case. So I started to direct my attention to the fact there was nothing that needed any acute action.

How Do Human Beings Perceive Reality and What Does it Matter? We are an infant race of seven billion separated by different belief systems of how the planet operates. Imagine a race united in their knowing rather than divided by their belief systems. At the same time we all perceive our physical reality to be the same. If you really think about it, we take a child from a young age and pound them with our version of reality.

Six Habits of Highly Empathic People, by Roman Krznaric If you think you’re hearing the word “empathy” everywhere, you’re right. It’s now on the lips of scientists and business leaders, education experts and political activists. But there is a vital question that few people ask: How can I expand my own empathic potential? Empathy is not just a way to extend the boundaries of your moral universe. According to new research, it’s a habit we can cultivate to improve the quality of our own lives. But what is empathy? The big buzz about empathy stems from a revolutionary shift in the science of how we understand human nature.
