EMOTIONS

INTRODUCTION

A fast beating heart, sweaty hands, shortness of breath and shaking limbs accompanying intense feelings of fear are obvious, physiological signs of emotion. Emotions, especially intense ones, can cause common somatic changes. In this article we will try to help you understand what emotions consist of using a cognitive-behavioural approach.

Alessitimia ed empatia

ALEXITHYMIA AND EMPATHY

If alexithymia implies not being able to or it being impossible to perceive one's own and others' emotions, empathy is, conversely, the ability that allows people to tune into their own and others' moods. The meanings of alexithymia and empathy and how they develop are explained in this article.

FEAR

The term ‘fear’ refers to states of different emotional intensity that range from physiological polarity, like uncertainty, worry, unease or hesitation, to pathological polarity, like anxiety, terror, phobia or panic. Where does fear come from? You can find the answers to these questions in this article.

LA GIOIA

HAPPINESS

Emotions are key components of our lives and we often get the incentives that drive our day from them. Even though every single emotion is important and allows those who experience an emotion to feel alive, us humans are especially looking for the feelings and emotions which make us feel good and satisfy us. In other words, we are on the hunt for the emotional state of being called happiness.


LA RABBIA

ANGER

Anger is a normal emotion and it is considered fundamental by all psychological theories since it is possible to identify a specific functional origin for it, as well as antecedent characteristics, facial expressions, constant physiological changes and predictable actions of anger. Being a primitive emotion, anger can be seen in humans of all ages and even other species..

IL DISPREZZO

CONTEMPT

Like disgust, contempt also warns an individual of potentially harmful situations, however, diversely from disgust, it seems to be more developed in as much as it is not an inanimate object which induces this emotion, rather it is a human being. Contempt is related to social interaction.

LA GELOSIA

JEALOUSY

Jealousy has always been a favoured subject in art and literature. Many people have tried to describe it, define it and, above all, determine which people are more inclined to it, what induces it and what behaviour causes it. In this article you will find a definition of this complex state of emotions and certain aspects of two types of jealousy will be described: romantic jealousy and social competition jealousy.

L'IMBARAZZO

EMBARRASSMENT

Pathological vanity, or narcissism, is becoming an ever-increasing personality disorder. The origins of this issue are rooted in classicAL literature, that is, in Greek mythology.
