Plutchik Emotion Circumplex

I agree with Luc Latulippe, this Emotion Circumplex by Plutchik is mesmerizing. Plutchik first proposed his cone-shaped model (3D) or the wheel model (2D) in 1980 to describe how emotions were related.

Read more about his theory of emotion over on Wikipedia.

  1. I’m a psychologist and I found it pretty interesting.

    Loved this site.

  2. When looking down at the cone, it reminds me of a mandala. Then I started visualizing a mandala as a three dimensional image. Has anyone ever done 3-D visualizations with mandalas in their practice? I am going to explore this idea further. Thanks for posting.
