Psychologist Dan Kalb recently posted a link to a wonderful resource for people who are interested in understanding and exploring emotions.
In his post, Dan explains a little bit about the background for this site…
The Dalai Lama commissioned psychologist Paul Eckman to create a secular
interactive map of human emotions. Eckman, in turn, surveyed some 150
researchers with expertise bearing on that issue.
The result is: http://atlasofemotions.com
If you use lists of emotions in your work with some clients, you might want
to check this out. It has greater depth and breadth, and is much richer in
terms of addressing complex interactions of emotions.
Importantly, noodling around with it is fun!
Eckman is the micro-expression whiz, and the guy who consulted
with Pixar on their animated movie Inside Out...
