Emotions and Feelings

In recent posts I presented a limited number of core Limbic Brain emotional responses. As I earlier indicated, emotions are biological facts. However, there can be a large (very large) number of micro feelings that can emanate from and be attached to the 5-core macro emotions. There is a family of feelings attached to the core emotions. Feelings are interpretive factoids of emotional biological facts. Feelings involve Neocortex cognition, perception, assumptions, interpretation, and responses to core emotions. In the following Emotions and Feelings Chart, I give several  examples of the various feelings (or combination of feelings) that can be tied to the five core emotions.
