Wheel of Emotions

Plutchik's wheel of emotions identifies 8 basic emotions including joy, trust, fear, surprise, disgust, anger, and anticipation. Combinations of these basic emotions result in advanced emotions such as optimism, love, submission, awe, disappointment, remorse, contempt, and aggression. This diagram shows the relationships between each emotion in the form of a spectrum.
