Vocabulary 32 - More Words that Express Feelings

If you were an Indian cricket player and were selected to play for India in the cricket series against Australia what would be your state of mind?

On the contrary, if you were a player who played for India in the previous series against Sri Lanka and found that you were dropped for the series against Australia what would be your state of mind?

In the first case you would be experiencing an emotion or feeling of elation and in the second case an emotion or feeling of disappointment. Emotions and feelings are a part of life and are reactions that are triggered either by some external stimuli or by our internal thoughts. Usually it is difficult to separate the two but it is generally understood that feelings are more physical sensations, triggered by external stimuli and sometimes by internal thoughts, while emotions are triggered by internal thoughts and depict the state of mind of a person.

There are many different emotions and feelings, like remorse, confusion, loneliness or hurt, to name just a few. The cricketers’ feelings fall into a separate category of elation or disappointment which are distinct from the other categories.

Day in and day out we interact with our family members, friends and business associates or schoolmates. We meet people who are not known to us, such as a ticket collector on the train or a salesperson in a shop. Some of these encounters make us happy, such as when a salesperson is able to help us make a choice, or unhappy, like when a person at the counter is unable to solve our problem. Our emotions and feelings are guided by our interactions and the kind of people we interact with. We develop these emotions and feelings over a period of time and they manifest themselves when we react in a particular way to a stimulus. Such feelings and emotions are expressed by certain specific words and these words have entered our vocabulary. By taking the quiz that follows you will learn some more of these words.
