Emotions Wheel

Recently a friend posted on Facebook an image of a wheel style chart of feelings/emotions where the centre contained five basic emotions and the two outer rings expanded on those five emotions into more nuanced feelings. Even though it’s not necessarily an exhaustive list, I thought that the presentation was useful for developing a greater sensitivity to the comprehensive spectrum of emotions and feelings available to us; first start with the basic emotion and fan out from there to hone in on a more specific feeling.

Since the image was just a somewhat fuzzy jpeg I tried to find a better format but to no avail. Also the original source seems to be unknown at this stage. So I decided to recreate the image and make it available in a variety of forms and formats. Here they are.
