8 Basic Emotions by Robert Plutchik

Dec 02, 2021


Today, I would love to talk to you about your emotions, your primary basic emotions. You know, as part of emotional intelligence, your self-awareness, meaning, being aware of your emotions, how you feel, why you feel that way and what others are feeling, and why they feel that way, is your number one skill. And knowing how to name your emotions is the first part of that emotional self-awareness. Because what ends up happening most of the time is that the mixed emotions we labeled them incorrectly. When you feel sad, you might say, "I'm frustrated". When you feel angry, you can say that, "Oh my God, I am just so disgusted". So, if you are using these mixed feelings, and mixed emotions and incorrect labeling of your emotions, you'll never be able to understand yourself at a deeper level. For that reason, I want to talk about this wheel of emotions that Robert Plutchik created back in 2001 so that you will become even more aware about your emotions. 

And if you are ready, let's go!
