What are the feelings?
Our life is so diverse and multifaceted that every day we are able to experience at least 10 different feelings. Depending on the saturation of the day with events, on the individual characteristics of a person, his character and ability to experience certain feelings, he can experience a maximum of 200 feelings per day. There are a lot of feelings, they are diverse and multifaceted, but at the same time they are an emotional process of a person, reflecting his subjective evaluative relation to real or abstract objects. In no case should not confuse feelings with affects, emotions and moods. Without feelings, it is impossible to imagine a person’s life, no matter how bitter sometimes.
If we talk about what feelings a person has for a certain period of time, then they can be both positive and negative. Scientists distinguish several feelings in a separate category, which are commonly called "neutral". Positive feelings include:
- Gratitude is a feeling that expresses appreciation for some act by another person, for example, for his attention or for some kind of service.
- Love is a feeling that one person expresses in relation to another. In some cases, the appearance of a distorted opinion about another person is characteristic of falling in love. Love is a short-term feeling that can grow into love or not get a sequel.
- Admiration is a strong feeling that reflects the joyful satisfaction of a person with a particular object, object or person.
- Love is a deep affection, a feeling that expresses a person's sympathy for a particular object or subject. Love has become one of the fundamental themes in world art.
- Tenderness is a feeling expressing trepidation and joy, gratitude and joy of one person in relation to another. Tenderness is characteristic of loving couples and for the relationship between parents and children.
- Sympathy is a strong feeling that characterizes a person’s stable emotional predisposition towards other people. When sympathy is shown, a person shows an increased interest in his object, gives him attention, help. The foundation for the emergence of sympathy are the general views, interests and values, behavior and character of another person.
- Passion is a strong and enduring feeling that dominates other feelings.For passion is characterized by a strong attraction to the object of his adoration - it can be objects or people. Some individuals have a passion for their ideas.
If we consider what feelings are, it is necessary to mention those feelings that cause a person to have a negative attitude towards events or objects, objects or other people. Basic negative feelings:
- Jealousy is a negative feeling that arises in cases where a person does not have enough attention, respect or love from another person who is very valued and loved.
- Antipathy is a weak-willed feeling that arises, regardless of whether the person wants to experience it or not. Antipathy is characterized by disgust and hostility.
- Guilt is a feeling that expresses a person’s dissatisfaction with his action, which caused moral or other damage to other people.
- Hatred is a feeling that is stable in nature and duration, it can reflect aversion and rejection, as well as hostility towards an object and object, towards a phenomenon or group of people towards a person.
- Fear is the inner state of a person due to imminent real or perceived disasters.
To determine what feelings a person has at the moment, one should consider his facial expression, gaze and general behavior. The fact is that most people express their feelings through facial expressions and body movements.
In addition to the feelings experienced by a person as a result of certain events, there are sense organs through which the human brain forms the perception not only of the surrounding space, but also of itself. Thanks to the senses formed the world of man. The sense organs include: skin and nose, eyes and ears, and also tongue. These organs are responsible for the higher feelings a person experiences. By the way, experts say that each person determines for himself which of them are the highest. But at the same time, love, happiness, hate and pain are traditionally assigned to this category.
Some experts argue that there is a sixth sense organ - this is the vestibular apparatus. It characterizes the balance and position of a person in space.All the senses transmit relevant information to the brain, after which it enters the central nervous system, reflecting those feelings that are characteristic of a particular situation. For example, what feelings does a person experience while watching an interesting movie? Of course, this feeling of satisfaction. The same feeling appears when a sweet fruit or cake falls on our taste buds. A completely different feeling causes a situation when we see an ugly person or an unattractive urban landscape. We have a feeling of antipathy.
