What do you think is the emotion that joins up all human beings on Earth? (I'm not going to talk about animals)

Asked by luigirovatti (719points) 2 weeks ago

I personally think it’s not love. Love is an elusive emotion and anyways people can live all their life without love, (and I’m not saying that it is because humans live too little). No, I’m talking about fear. It’s the most elusive emotion too, but to STUDY. If a person doesn’t feel fear or doesn’t have a personal relationship with fear, it’s because it’s not a human being or a person with a brain sufficiently developed. And, I underline, EVERYONE reacts differently to the fear they feel inside. Chemically, electrically (brain mechanism), even instinctively and with what words to say, what to think, etc. Psychologists have defined accurately love, but not fear. They are at a loss to what to do. And if you still don’t believe me, look to all the information findable here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear_processing_in_the_brain But enough stalling. I want to hear your opinions. What do you think about all this?

Not love.

Fear. That’s what motivates people.

It is sadness. Sadness makes people wonder about themselves. It gives thoughts, that can lead to communication skills.
It also let their vulnerable to others, actually able to show the communication skills.

It also could be happiness (excited) if you think that the last one was too emo.
The more happiness it gives; more it is wanted.

Aren’t all the emotions we feel as individuals shared by humanity? That’s what makes us human. Even the response we feel when we look at a painting, or listen to music, though we can’t describe the emotion, we feel It, and we know that others can feel it too wherever they might be in the world.

@flutherother: All emotions derives from few basic.

That may be true, but some evolution has taken place and we can feel quite subtle and complex emotions also.

What about those of us who don’t really do fear? I would choose compassion or empathy.

Although I’d rather say animals and talk about that. :)

@KNOWITALL: There are some people that due to some conditions, cannot prove compassion and empathy.

KNOWITALL's avatar

@luigirovatti Cannot prove or feel?
