Researchers from University of California, Berkeley, have identified 27 distinct categories of emotions.

And here they are, by alphabetical order and not desirability or importance:

  • Admiration
  • Adoration
  • Aesthetic Appreciation
  • Amusement
  • Anxiety
  • Awe
  • Awkwardness
  • Boredom
  • Calmness
  • Confusion
  • Craving
  • Disgust
  • Empathetic pain
  • Entrancement
  • Envy
  • Excitement
  • Fear
  • Horror
  • Interest
  • Joy
  • Nostalgia
  • Romance
  • Sadness
  • Satisfaction
  • Sexual desire
  • Sympathy
  • Triumph

Nope, Hangry or Sleepy aren’t emotions – and neither is lazy.

Researchers say it’s useful for people to be able to identify emotions in themselves and others.
