Just now +Adam Zielinski posted a marvelous pictorial representation of how emotions are structured; he posted on the Writer's Discussion Group, one of the communities I belong to. I immediately popped the graphic into my "writing resources" folder in Evernote and went in search of more.
But then I thought ... wait! I should share this on my blog.
A Wheel Of Emotions
The wheel can be found here. Thanks go to Adam Zielinski.
Categorizing Emotions, Wikipedia Style
Here is a classification of 48 emotions in terms of whether they are:
- Negative or Positive
- Forceful or Passive
And so on. Here's a link to the article: Contrasting and categorization of emotions.
Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions
You can see Plutchik's wheel in the post I linked to, above, but over at ThisIsIndexed.com Jessica Hagy wrote an interesting article and, as well, drew her own visual representation of the wheel.
That's the first of three sketches she did, you can read her article here: Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions.
And that's it! Tomorrow I'll either talk about Michael Moorcock's writing method or I'll share one of the other projects I've been working on.
I hope you have a good writing day.
