Robert Plutchik created a wheel of emotions in 1980 which consisted of 8 basic emotions and 8 advanced emotions each composed of 2 basic ones.
Eight Basic Emotions
Basic Emotion ⇄ Basic Opposite
- Joy ⇄ Sadness
- Trust ⇄ Disgust
- Fear ⇄ Anger
- Surprise ⇄ Anticipation
Combination of Basic Emotions (A + B) = Advanced Human Emotions (Opposite Advanced Emotion in Parentheses)
- Anticipation + Joy = Optimism (Disapproval)
- Joy + Trust = Love (Remorse)
- Trust + Fear = Submission (Contempt)
- Fear + Surprise = Awe (Aggression)
- Surprise + Sadness = Disappointment (Optimism)
- Sadness + Disgust = Remorse (Love)
- Disgust + Anger = Contempt (Submission)
- Anger + Anticipation = Aggression (Awe)
I actually had this diagram from my psychology class and I started writing a series or fics based on all the emotions.
But this one is way more detailed I’ll have to save it.

I feel like I’ve been wearing glasses with shattered lenses for a really long time. I finally fixed my glasses, and now I’m realizing how broken everything else is.
Metaphors make it so we don’t betray confidences or hurt people, but I’m sick of metaphors. Metaphors aren’t clarity and they certainly aren’t disclosure.
Therapy starts soon. There are no metaphors in therapy.

I guess the problem with this sketch is that the baseline reality is really unclear.
Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this image in no way endorses a belief in the “JIF” pronunciation.
The larger crime is the fact that we have a language where this kind of thing is possible.
Growing up in Papillion, a suburb bordered on its north edge by a street named Giles Road, this has annoyed me for years.
