“Never let negative emotions influence your faith”
-Dr. Jacinta Mpalyenkana, PhD, MBA
Human is emotional well-being. The effect of the internal or external environment is crucial for individual development. The energy may get blocked or released as an after-effect of emotion. It depends upon individual maturity. One may burst into tears after watching a social drama in a movie or episode of a serial on television and another individual may laugh at the incident. You may laugh after an intelligent joke of a stand-up comedian but I may not even smile. Your happiness or pain depends upon your thought process who seriously you take an incident whether on social media or a real event in front of your eyes.
Emotional manipulators dangerous
It depends upon your personality traits who deeply the manipulators affect you. Emotional manipulator, in one way, is so toxic that you may sometime do not notice your act or the consequences may be very much hazardous to your health or critical to managing your behavior. The manipulator is always craving the attention of people. A person may complain about a small piece of the task he does not want to undergo in such a way that he has to climb the mountain. Things are sometimes far away from the truth and therefore manipulator tries to twist the fact and prove you wrong by convincing you according to their perception. With aggression and information overload, they relentlessly pressurize you with a sense of urgency. An emotional manipulator is always ready to turn something positive into something negative. They are experts at using your conscience against you, prompting you to feel guilty even when you have done nothing wrong. They may not take things seriously but also try to encourage to listen to them and act positively on their intentions.
Emotional Personality Disorders
The emotionally affected person may be constantly seeking attention and speak dramatically emotional words to gain the sympathy of others however, such persons can easily be influenced if handled intelligently. In this subject affairs, emotions may be shallow, rapid, dramatic, and sometimes sexually provocative. Since the emotional vampires are so strong that they may affect the psychosomatic structure of humans drastically. It is also the fact that positive emotions show joy and happiness as they release hormones responsible for strengthening the immune system. But at the same time, it may also be found that negative emotions may have the opposite effect. They actually weaken the immune system, making your body more prone to illness.
The emotional distress damages physically in such a way that the victim may have serious consequences. Emotional stress may cause a stroke or lead to a blood urination problem called UTI or urinal tract infections. A person who has been affected may hardly assimilate external events. The resultant resentment or anger may cause dramatic consequences. In fact, others may not be aware of individual sadness causing a “burning” sensation or irritation. Sudden pain in the lower left side of the abdomen called diverticulitis symptoms is the most common. Other symptoms may include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, bloating, or constipation. Emotion for a prolonged time may invite disorders like stroke, eye problems, and even epilepsy. It is quite a serious affair as emotional instability results in damage to the hippocampus, a brain area involved in learning and memory ability. Emotional pains are stored in the body. The wounds may not be visible but sometimes the effect can externally be perceived through tears in the eyes. The emotionally affected person may constantly feel weak and have fatigue.
The overall subject affairs may significantly affect the relationships and limit social activities at the workplace and home. The continuous effects may bridge the disorders like paranoid personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, or obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. In case of any signs or symptoms of a personality disorder, it is advisable to see a mental health professional. If the unusual behavior is untreated, personality disorders can cause significant problems in your life that may get worse without treatment.
According to Kendra Cherry, MS, an author, educational consultant, and speaker focused on helping students learn about psychology, there are 6 types of basic emotions and their effects on human behavior.
Of all the different types of emotions, happiness tends to be the one that people strive for the most. Happiness is often defined as a pleasant emotional state that is characterized by feelings of contentment, joy, gratification, satisfaction, and well-being.
Research on happiness has increased significantly since the 1960s within a number of disciplines, including the branch of psychology known as positive psychology. This type of emotion is sometimes expressed through:
Facial expressions: such as smiling
Body language: such as a relaxed stance
The tone of voice: an upbeat, pleasant way of speaking
While happiness is considered one of the basic human emotions, the things we think will create happiness tend to be heavily influenced by culture. For example, pop culture influences tend to emphasize that attaining certain things such as buying a home or having a high-paying job will result in happiness.
The realities of what actually contributes to happiness are often much more complex and more highly individualized.2 People have long believed that happiness and health were connected, and research has supported the idea that happiness can play a role in both physical and mental health.
Happiness has been linked to a variety of outcomes including increased longevity and increased marital satisfaction.3 Conversely, unhappiness has been linked to a variety of poor health outcomes.
Stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness, for example, have been linked to things such as lowered immunity, increased inflammation, and decreased life expectancy.
Sadness is another type of emotion often defined as a transient emotional state characterized by feelings of disappointment, grief, hopelessness, disinterest, and dampened the mood.
Like other emotions, sadness is something that all people experience from time to time. In some cases, people can experience prolonged and severe periods of sadness that can turn into depression. Sadness can be expressed in a number of ways including:
Withdrawal from others
The type and severity of sadness can vary depending upon the root cause, and how people cope with such feelings can also differ.
Sadness can often lead people to engage in coping mechanisms such as avoiding other people, self-medicating, and ruminating on negative thoughts. Such behaviors can actually exacerbate feelings of sadness and prolong the duration of the emotion.
Fear is a powerful emotion that can also play an important role in survival. When you face some sort of danger and experience fear, you go through what is known as the fight or flight response.
Your muscles become tense, your heart rate and respiration increase, and your mind become more alert, priming your body to either run from the danger or stand and fight.
This response helps ensure that you are prepared to effectively deal with threats in your environment. Expressions of this type of emotion can include:
Facial expressions: such as widening the eyes and pulling back the chin
Body language: attempts to hide or flee from the threat
Physiological reactions: such as rapid breathing and heartbeat
Of course, not everyone experiences fear in the same way. Some people may be more sensitive to fear and certain situations or objects may be more likely to trigger this emotion.
Fear is the emotional response to an immediate threat. We can also develop a similar reaction to anticipated threats or even our thoughts about potential dangers, and this is what we generally think of as anxiety. Social anxiety, for example, involves an anticipated fear of social situations.
Some people, on the other hand, actually seek out fear-provoking situations. Extreme sports and other thrills can be fear-inducing, but some people seem to thrive and even enjoy such feelings.
Repeated exposure to a fear object or situation can lead to familiarity and acclimation, which can reduce feelings of fear and anxiety.
This is the idea behind exposure therapy, in which people are gradually exposed to the things that frighten them in a controlled and safe manner. Eventually, feelings of fear begin to decrease.
Disgust is another of the original six basic emotions described by Eckman. Disgust can be displayed in a number of ways including:
Body language: turning away from the object of disgust
Physical reactions: such as vomiting or retching
Facial expressions: such as wrinkling the nose and curling the upper lip
This sense of revulsion can originate from a number of things, including an unpleasant taste, sight, or smell. Researchers believe that this emotion evolved as a reaction to foods that might be harmful or fatal. When people smell or taste foods that have gone bad, for example, disgust is a typical reaction.
Poor hygiene, infection, blood, rot, and death can also trigger a disgust response. This may be the body's way of avoiding things that may carry transmittable diseases.
People can also experience moral disgust when they observe others engaging in behaviors that they find distasteful, immoral, or evil.
Anger can be a particularly powerful emotion characterized by feelings of hostility, agitation, frustration, and antagonism towards others. Like fear, anger can play a part in your body's fight or flight response.
When a threat generates feelings of anger, you may be inclined to fend off the danger and protect yourself. Anger is often displayed through:
Facial expressions: such as frowning or glaring
Body language: such as taking a strong stance or turning away
The tone of voice: such as speaking gruffly or yelling
Physiological responses: such as sweating or turning red
Aggressive behaviors: such as hitting, kicking, or throwing objects
While anger is often thought of as a negative emotion, it can sometimes be a good thing. It can be constructive in helping clarify your needs in a relationship, and it can also motivate you to take action and find solutions to things that are bothering you.
Anger can become a problem, however, when it is excessive or expressed in ways that are unhealthy, dangerous, or harmful to others. Uncontrolled anger can quickly turn to aggression, abuse, or violence.
This type of emotion can have both mental and physical consequences. Unchecked anger can make it difficult to make rational decisions and can even have an impact on your physical health.
Anger has been linked to coronary heart diseases and diabetes. It has also been linked to behaviors that pose health risks such as aggressive driving, alcohol consumption, and smoking.
Surprise is another one of the six basic types of human emotions originally described by Eckman. Surprise is usually quite brief and is characterized by a physiological startle response following something unexpected.
This type of emotion can be positive, negative, or neutral. An unpleasant surprise, for example, might involve someone jumping out from behind a tree and scaring you as you walk to your car at night.
An example of a pleasant surprise would be arriving home to find that your closest friends have gathered to celebrate your birthday. Surprise is often characterized by: Facial expressions: such as raising the brows, widening the eyes, and opening the mouth
Physical responses: such as jumping back
Verbal reactions: such as yelling, screaming, or gasping
Surprise is another type of emotion that can trigger the fight or flight response. When startled, people may experience a burst of adrenaline that helps prepare the body to either fight or flee.
Surprise can have important effects on human behavior. For example, research has shown that people tend to disproportionately notice surprising events.
This is why surprising and unusual events in the news tend to stand out in memory more than others. Research has also found that people tend to be more swayed by surprising arguments and learn more from surprising information.
