Negative Emotions Typology

By Steven Fokkinga


To practice positive design, we need to understand the full spectrum of emotions. With this tool, you can compare, analyze, read comics, and watch movies about 36 different negative emotions.

We developed this tool because we found that there is a lot of information available about negative emotions in scientific literature, but it is difficult to get an overview of this information. Furthermore, the existing literature is often only text-based, which makes it difficult to understand emotions on a more intuitive level.
In the negative emotion typology tool, you can compare 36 negative emotion with each other. Each emotion has a rich database that consists of in-depth information, three videos of someone experiencing that emotion, a comic, typical expressions of people with this emotion, and texts explaining the differences between this and related emotions.
