BACKSTORY

Psychologist Robert Plutchik (1927-2006) proposed a psychoevolutionary classification approach for general emotional responses. He considered there to be eight primary emotions: anticipation, anger, disgust, sadness, surprise, fear, trust and joy. Plutchik created the wheel of emotions in order to illustrate the various relationships among the emotions.
