Mood Map
How do you feel?
Emotions create subjective feelings that are often evaluated as feeling good or feeling bad. Emotions also tend to increase or decrease our arousal level, which we often describe as increasing or lowering our energy level. The map shown here places each of the major emotions roughly where they are often experienced in these two dimensions.

Emotional Competency - Mood Map

The placement of each emotion on this map is only approximate and very subjective. Each emotion can vary greatly in intensity. For example anger can range from mild irritation to intense rage. Clearly the energy level of those extremes vary greatly. You can improve your ability to recognize emotions in yourself by paying attention to how you are feeling on the good-bad axis and on the energy level axis as you go about your day. Click on each emotion name to learn more about that emotion. Two other, more subtle dimensions also differentiate among emotions. The first dimension describes the depth of experience or depth of emotional involvement characteristic of the emotion. The second dimension describes the extent to which the emotion is either involuntary or deliberate. The major emotions are placed on a grid along these two dimensions below.

The activation dimension is labeled High/Low energy and the evaluation dimension is labeled Feel good/Feel bad on the upper chart. The depth of experience dimension is labeled Deep/Shallow and the Uncontrol dimension is labeled Involuntary/Deliberate on the lower chart. To better understand each of the four factors used, the fifteen emotional concepts from the list of 558 terms with the highest and lowest scores on each of the four factors are listed in the following table. In each column the terms with the highest score (toward +3) for each factor are listed in the first group. Those with the lowest score (toward -3) are listed in the second group, below the break in the table. The uncontrol factor describes the extent of autonomous or involuntary response as opposed to deliberate intent associated with each concept.
