We continue to acquaint you with the works of K.Izard.

Emotions of forecast:

  1. Excitement is not considered as an independent category. Excitement is perceived as an increased level of emotional disturbance.
  2. Anxiety – the concept was introduced into psychology by Freud and is now considered by many scientists as a kind of fear. Anxiety is a consequence of the activity of the imagination. Anxiety occurs in humans due to the presence of unfinished situations, blocked activity, which does not allow to discharge the excitement.
  3. Fear – state that reflects the protective reaction of a person when experiencing real or imagined danger. Thus, the emergence of fear is both appropriate and useful. However, for man as a social being, fear often becomes an obstacle to achieving the goals.
  4. Despair is a state of extreme hopelessness. The specific reasons that can lead a person to despair are various, but all of them should give the person the impression of the insurmountability of the danger that threatens him.

Emotions of joy:

  1. Satisfaction – a feeling felt by one whose aspirations, desires, needs are fulfilled and satisfied. This is purely mental pleasure, the main thing in which is to achieve the goal.
  2. Joy is an active positive emotion, which is expressed in a good mood and a sense of satisfaction, accompanied by the experience of strong satisfaction with yourself and the world around you.

Intellectual emotions:

  1. Surprise – a sense of surprise, which joins the consciousness of the problem to reconcile our new phenomenon with the ideas that people have.
  2. Interest is a feeling of successfully satisfied need, satisfaction from any process.
  1. Sense of humor – its essence is not to see and understand the comic where it is, but to perceive as comic what pretends to be serious.
  2. The emotion of assumption is an assessment of some new, still unconscious result of solving the problem and is experienced very vividly as enlightenment, sudden clarification of something in the mind, understanding.
  3. Doubts are an intellectual process of probabilistic prediction of an event, achievement or failure to achieve a goal, self-belief or loss of this belief.
