Contrasting basic emotions

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 mental experiences that:

  1. have a strongly motivating subjective quality like pleasure or pain;
  2. are in response to some event or object that is either real or imagined;
  3. motivate particular kinds of behaviour.

The combination of these attributes distinguish the emotions from sensations, feelings and moods.

Related to Object Properties Interest, curiosity Alarm, panic
Attraction, desire, admiration Aversion, disgust, revulsion
Surprise, amusement Indifference, familiarity, habituation

HUMAINE's proposal for EARL (Emotion Annotation and Representation Language)

The emotion annotation and representation language (EARL) proposed by the Human-Machine Interaction Network on Emotion (HUMAINE) classifies 48 emotions.[2]
