I talked with a scientist friend of mine the other day. She told me about emotions and how they aren’t what we think they are. And that they are more varied and weird than the older models suggested. Emotions are, according to the newer models based on the newer data, learned concepts and there are emotions that only exist within a certain cultural concept.
And learning that, and being a sucker for terminology (thanks mom), I thought it would be interesting to name some unnamed emotions and to maybe give them a name.
I’m thinking similar to the “If I had” - game but in reverse. I describe a feeling I have no name for, the next person answers a name they think would fit for it and then describe their own emotion? (for fun so don’t overthink the names or emotions if you don’t want to)
Emotion: The elated feeling when you manage to remember someone’s name before it gets awkward.
