List of human emotions we can experience




There is a huge list of human emotions that we are capable of experiencing. However often times we only experience a very limited number of emotions.

It is always the same few ; happiness, anger, love, confidence, anxiety, stress, relaxed. Ask people what emotions do they experience in a week and they'll invariably say those common emotions.

The more type of emotions we feel, the more colorful our life experience will be. It is not that we can't experience a wide array of emotions, rather it is because we often label different emotions into a common group like happy or sad that we forget to experience that emotion for what it is.

list of human emotions Take happy. There is happy, ecstatic, cheerful, relax, excited, exhilarated etc. All those emotions are unique in their own way but we usually label it as happy. By doing that we unintentionally take away it's characteristics and thus take away our experience.

By changing how you label what your emotions you'll change the way you feel. Use stronger labels when experiencing positive emotions and less intense descriptions when going through negative emotions. Doing that alone will literally change your emotional experience. The list below will help you do that.


Below is a list of human emotions sorted by the least to the most intense.
