Wheel of Emotions

worksheet

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 Wheel of Emotions diagram beautifully depicts the relationships between each emotion in the form of a spectrum.

We like to use this worksheet with clients who have a hard time picking out the right word to describe how they feel. Even if the word they want isn't on the spectrum, they might be able to point out what it's near. Oh, and this printout looks great on an office wall.
