Emotion is a multiple range of observable behavior, expressed feeling, and changes in the body state .psychologists divided emotions in to two categories. These are primary emotions and secondary emotions. Primary emotions are those that we feel firs, as a first response to a situation. They are unconscious natural response that we have. The primary emotions include, fear, anger, sadness, disgust, surprise, and happiness. They are easily observable on our facial expression and universally similar despite the cultural specificity. The primary emotions do not tell the whole story of our feelings. The secondary emotions are the complex chain of thinking of the primary emotions that come through our experiences. Secondary emotions appear after primary emotions, for example we see a dangerous animal in our way that wants to threaten us, our first response is fear, that fear turns to anger that anger in turn prepares our body to fight back or run away from it.so to get the full picture of someone's condition, it is better to look at both the primary and secondary emotions together.
Some of our emotions take place in a specific region in our brain. For example fear is relatively specific to amygdala, disgust to insula- a region within the limbic system, anger to a region of the frontal cortex behind our eyes. There is no a single process for each of emotional feeling, multiple brain regions participates in all emotions. Is our emotion develops through our life stage? Yes, as we learned in previous lesson, emotional development starts since early age of childhood. Parents have a great influence on their children emotional development to be socially competitive in their future life. Especially, Authoritative style parents encourage children to be independent but still limit and control on their actions. Children of authoritative parents are socially competent, self- reliant, and socially responsible. What is so strike me is that how parents deal with their children determine the children future behaviors. For example, when they grew up, how they react with friends, school teachers, a spouse, and coworkers are depend on how families treat them since child hood age. This is what an authoritative parenting style looks like...An authoritative parenting style image.jpg
