How ya feeling?

5 years from now, if I was asked to recall something from my first semester class of my freshman year, which is Psychology 1001, I'm not going to lie. I will struggle. But one concept, will stay very vivid in my brain, for what i'm sure will be for even more than 5 years.

The Idea of Primary Emotions.

I'll give Mariah Carey props for her song, Emotions.
But maybe if she'd have taken Psych 1001,
she would have a few more things to sing about.

There are seven almost universally recognizable facial expressions that make up our primary emotions.

-Sadness
-Surprise
-Anger
-Fear
-Contempt
-Disgust

and of course, the most easily recognized emotion:

HAPPINESS!!!

I feel like this will be what I remember most because I am a very empathetic person. I strive in understanding how my family, friends and boyfriend are feeling. Being an empathetic person allows me to create many secondary emotions. These include harder feelings to interpret, such as hatred or anxiousness. Most importantly these secondary emotions include love!

These emotions are even recognizable between Gophers & Badgers. ;)
