Atlas of Emotions


Dr. Paul Ekman, best known for his research of nonverbal behavior such as gestures and facial expressions, together with his daughter Dr. Eve Ekman created an Atlas of Emotions: an online  interactive emotion education tool. The idea of the project started after Dr. Ekman and the Dalai Lama conversed about the origins of emotions. Dalai Lama asked whether Dr. Ekman could create a map of the emotions, in order to provide a deeper understanding of our emotions.

The introductory page present the Atlas of Emotions as “a visual tool to build your emotion vocabulary. The goal is to increase choice in what we become emotional about and how we respond.” Have a look and learn a little bit more about yourself! I did.
