The palette of emotions (an exercise)

When a person is told about as a "Bright personality!", in particular, his rich palette of emotions is also implied here. In a person with a rich palette of emotions, the world of emotions and feelings is extraordinarily rich - it contains sincere joy, fleeting sadness, lead fatigue and idle laziness... It is clear that the quality of the emotional palette determines not only the amount of emotions mastered and used, but also their composition. There are three crooked emotions in a person - gray boredom, fear and anger, it’s sad, but if your three basic emotions are joy, interest and gratitude, then such a set is much more interesting.

Here lives a married couple. Relationships are even, normal, calm... All right? Not really. If people do not express anything to each other, no emotions, their relationships most often start to be experienced by them as poor. Result? From time to time, this emotional evenness bursts with an emotional explosion. One of the options for solving this problem is to expand the palette of emotions, learn to express to each other a wide range of mostly positive emotions, in principle to teach to be more attentive to each other, better understand the partner s condition. It is important to understand that our moods, experiences and various emotional states not so much reflect the wealth of the world, how many features of our socialization, our habits of interaction and skills of response. If we want to have a rich emotional world and use it skillfully, it is worthwhile to expand our palette of emotions and train the skills of calling the right emotions. How? I worked out in Syntone and for many years I have been conducting a special exercise for this purpose, "Palette of emotions". Exercise includes a list of emotions (emotional states), recommended for psycho-gymnastics and verification of mutual understanding between partners, and the procedure for training these emotions. List of emotions for working out:

• Self-confidence,

• mockery,

• angry indignation,

• inspired dreaminess,

• sadness light,

• melancholy sadness,

• child offendedness,

• dull obedience,

• evil persistence,

• cautious alertness,

• contempt,

• fatigue ,

• calm superiority,

• reign,

• relaxed contentment,

• joy,

• dull tearfulness,

• surprise,

• admiration,

• very request,

• wickedness,

• tenderness and gratitude.

According to the procedure, the exercise is done in four stages.

Stage 1: One of the partners makes (expresses) some emotional state from the list, the other this emotional state by its expressive movements guesses. Condition - emotions are expressed without words and means only of natural, everyday expressiveness, without bright theatrical gestures and exaggerated poses.

Stage 2: One of the partners makes (expresses) some emotional state from the list, and his partner "edits" expressive means, makes the image of the emotion more understandable, accurate and vivid.

Stage 3: One of the partners calls some kind of emotional state from the list, the other makes this state at speed and with an emphasis on external expressiveness. The force and truth of inner experience in this case is not needed.

Stage 4: One of the partners calls some kind of emotional state from the list, the other makes this state with a task for speed and with an emphasis on inner experience. In this case, external expressiveness is naturally present, but it rather serves as a means of awakening the inner feeling.

The mode of the master of emotions: one calls and the second, covering half the face with a sheet of paper makes the experience of the eyes or mouth. A super master variant - the upper part of the face (eyes and eyebrows) make one emotion, and the lower part of the face at the same time - another emotion.

If you want to continue to develop in this direction, I recommend starting every morning with a special facial gymnastics and emotional gymnastics. By the time it all takes 5 to 15 minutes together, but it gives a lot. Practically all those who practice these exercises, note the increase of energy and the improvement of their mood, it becomes easier to understand the surrounding people and even easier to formulate their own thoughts.
