Scientists Discover 27 Different Emotions

People are dealing with a variety of emotions all the time, but while scientists used to believe there were only six real emotions - happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, fear and disgust – a new study has discovered that folks actually feel as much as 27 distinct emotions. 

A study out of University of California, Berkeley involved more than 800 participants who were asked to rank their emotions after watching 30 short video clips, featuring scenes like births, babies, weddings, proposals, death, suffering, risky stunts, sexual acts, and more. In the end, the data pointed to 27 distinct emotions. They include:

  • 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 

And if you can see a bit of an overlap with these emotions that’s because there are. The researchers note there are “smooth gradients of emotion” between some of them, adding that, "everything is interconnected.”

The Secret Codes Used By Disney Employees

Disney may be the happiest place on earth, but let’s face it, some visitors can be total nightmares. Well, no matter how rude a guest is, Disney staffers aren’t allowed to use negative language so they’ve come up with some code words in order to talk about those awful people without them ever knowing they’ve been disrespected.

In case you missed it, a new report has uncovered those secret code words used by Disney employees and they are pretty hysterical. For example, if you ever hear a staffer calling you a “treasured guest” you shouldn’t feel good about yourself, because that’s their code word for someone who’s rude.

And that’s not all, if someone has vomited in the park, which isn’t all that uncommon, staffers call it a “protein spill,” and when they take place it’s called a “Code V” situation.” When kids pee in the pool, also probably pretty common, it’s called a “Code Winnie” and when you hear the term “white powder alert” you may want to run. Seems that’s the code to let a staff member know when someone has spread a loved ones ashes on a ride or somewhere else in the park.
