The term emotion comes from the Latin word “emovere” meaning to move, or to stir, or to agitate. Emotion, hence, refers to the stirred or agitated state of being. When humans experience fear, disgust, joy, anger, grief, and more, a feeling of agitation or excitement occurs. This is called emotions and includes impulses, feelings, psychological reactions, and physical reactions. The basic types of emotions experienced by human beings are happiness, sadness, fear, disgust, anger, and surprise. Read Full Lesson: Types and Characteristics of Emotional Development
