OUR EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS' GUIDE

First of all let us show you some moodmaps.


The whole variety of emotions and feelings can be classified according to their depth and the degree of consciousness.


Here you can see an example of student's moodmap. As far as you see, jealousy, envy and listlessness are doubled on the scheme. It means that envy and jealousy can be positive and negative. Listlessness is either shallow or deep.
(the moodmap was created by Asya and Luck)

Comments:

I can't completely agree with these moodmaps. In my opinion every emotion and feeling can be either involuntary or deliberate. That's the fact, because we can make us feel every emotion. It's called auto-suggestion. Speaking about the fact that emotions and feelings can be shallow or deep, I think we should add the duration of an emotion or feeling in terms of time. So these maps are rather generalized.
(by Seagull)

Well, I completely agree with the concept. Of course it is true that different emotions influence our life. They are our most reliable indicators of how things are going on in our lives. We know that there are not only positive, but also negative emotions. Some of them are easier to express than others. And I think it is logical to classify all of them into involuntary, deliberate, shallow and deep emotions. But sometimes this classification depends only on the person because different people define their own emotions in different ways.
(by Tanya)

I'd like to comment a little bit upon our own moodmap. First of all, why did we create it?! We found the factor "involuntary-desperate" unreliable. We thought that the given moodmap was illogical. Maybe, you find our map strange, too. But at least we may explain our choice and classification of emotions.
And a few words about listlessness. Why did we put it twice? Well... You see, this listlessness may be quite shallow. In this case one may feel exhausted or somewhat like that. And if one expresses deep listlessness he/she may be under very high stress. The person may be unable even to do ordinary things, e.g. eat, walk or speak. It may be caused by a loss of close friends and relatives. Sometimes such people even need serious and long medical treatment.
(by Asya)

Well, I don't think that "deep-shallow” division is reliable... I tend to think that any kind of emotions can be deep in one situation and shallow in another. Envy is shallow? And what about those whose envy has made them paranoiacs? Compassion is deep? Well, not always – in some cases  - there can be just a hint at certain compassion. No, I sincerely believe that everything depends on a concrete person.
Involuntary-deliberate emotions... to my mind, all emotions one can feel are involuntary. Sometimes emotions appear without any reason and we can't say why we like this and hate that. May be, I measure another man's foot by my own last, but I'm absolutely convinced that there can be no rational explanation why we have these or that emotions.
Positive-negative emotions... I guess that a subjective-objective factor should be mentioned here. According to girl's map, envy and jealousy can be positive and negative. Objectively they are positive, because they can be a stimulus for a person that make him do smth. But subjectively these feelings are negative ones, there is no pleasure to be envious or jealous.
(by Rina)

This mapping seems to be quite logical, but a bit far-fetched, to my mind. We can’t allege that envy is always shallow and compassion is deep. I think it depends on the situation and on the person’s ply of the character. Hatred can also be provoked unconsciously and unintentionally. All in all, I believe that emotions can’t be deliberate simply because they are emotions – the most uncontrollable sphere of our inner world.

The factors which are responsible for our emotional state are at some points controversial as well. Every life situation presupposes a whole set of emotions that are often blended into one many-componential mixture. One and the same emotive factor can cause different emotional reaction. For instance, tension may stir up such feelings as confidence, desire to carry on and, more over, those abilities which are put away in ordinary situations. Blessing in disguise, you know.

I cant completely agree with this scheme. To my mind very emotion is unique for every of us. For example it is difficult for me to describe my emotions somehow and to compare it with this scheme because my mood changes all the time, I cant be in one mood for the whole day, i express different emotions. But in one thing i'm sure that different emotions can influence our life

All our emotions and feelings are caused by different positive and negative factors. Here you can see some tables showing different factors of different people's emotions.

Conversation 1:

Julia: I think that positive emotions are very important. When a person is in a good mood, he/she makes a favourable atmosphere around. It is easier to communicate with such say-to-say positive people. You know if you love others, others also return good for it. Think that you can create a rotation of happiness in the life.

Tanya: I want to say that there are also many negative factors that cause different emotions. And all these factors such as anger, fear or sadness affect our behaviour in our daily life. When a person has done something wrong or told a lie, it causes sadness, depression or even anger. It affects his/her life in a negative manner. Moreover all these negative factors can also cause different illnesses. I think we should avoid negative emotions in our life.

(by Ayayulia & Tanya)

Conversation 2:

Alexey: I should say that there are emotions that can be caused by either negative or positive factors.

Alex: So, I think you are wrong. What about love?

Alexey: Well, it’s rather difficult to explain it, but I can say that selfishness can become a cause of love. In this case a person loves her/himself.

Alex: You're just trying to paraphrase a trait of character, because selfishness is already love of yourself.

Alexey: OK. If so, let’s discuss loneliness. It’s a negative factor, but it can cause love. A lonely person needs somebody to stay with or to share his/her thoughts and feelings with.

Alex: You sound convincing. And how can happiness be connected with depression?

Alexey: It’s very easy to explain. The greater the happiness is, the more emotions we express. And there can be a moment when we have expressed all our positive emotions and begin to fall into depression.

Alex: So, I think all these connections between feelings and factors for them are very complicated.

Alexey: Yes, they are. I should also say that all emotions and feelings are too subjunctive.
