A while back I wrote t about how our emotional experiences are rooted in five core emotions: joy, fear, anger, disgust and sadness - and our ability to combine and mix emotions and then feel them in a variety of intensities increases our emotional experience. I also wrote recently
about how we struggle with is finding the right words to convey to others and we need to establish a bigger emotional dictionary to help describe to others how we feel.
With all of that said, we have created a new tool - the Interactive Emotions Wheel .
You can use the Emotions Wheel to interactively navigate, zoom and explore over 300 predefined emotions. Each emotion also has a "information card" that provides:
a definition of the emotion
an indication of the emotion as "pleasant" or "unpleasant"
the intensity of the emotion (low to high)
the underlying "core" emotions that the emotion is based from
related emotions that can be navigated to and explored
You can find it here.
