hello friends today i am going to discuss emotionality which is one of the important factors of neurolinguistic programming ah what is emotionality does it mean emotion or how should we get emotionality in hand let us discuss this now what is emotion thisis very important to know a feeling then what is kind of feeling these terms are difficult to define and even more difficult to understand completely is it feeling or it is neuro sensation what it is people have been attempting to understand this phenomenon for thousands ofyears and will most likely debate for a thousand more because it is really a debatable pointmnow this section will present the various theories related to the acquisition of emotion because throughout neurolinguistic programming we have been discussing that how to control the nerves how to control emotion and how to be a good speaker how to be a good anchor and how to get success in life so it is very important to know the emotion and the definition of emotion so the mainstream definition of emotion refers to a feeling a state involved being thoughts physiological changes and an outward expression or behavior but what comes first the thought the physiological arousal the behavior or does emotion exist in a vacuum whether or not these other components are present now for that we should know some of the important theories related to emotion what are the theories so there are five theories which attempt to understand why we experience emotion so emotionalityis the observable behavior and physiological component of emotion and is a measure of a persons emotional reactivity to a stimulus most of these responses can be observed by other people while some emotional responses can only be observed by the person experiencing them so let us see the theories and first the component so the elements of emotional experiences are cognitive component what does it mean because cognitive means brain mind and it is subjective conscious experience and positive psychology then after comes physiological component which means bodily autonomic arousal third is behavioral component that is characteristic overt expressions now these elements are very important to know the theories related to emotionality now early theories of emotions because emotion is not a new thing for centuries people keep on discussing emotion and feelings so what are the early theories of emotion now by the late eighteen hundreds many high quality contributions had been made to the theory of emotion by psychologists and scientists such as william wundt george stout william mcdougall william james and george herbert mead william james prefer to focus on the physiological aspects of emotional response though he did not disregard the perceptual or cognitive component william mcdougall thought of emotion as the articulation of a natural response built on the instinct other psychologistsreasoned that although gestures express emotion this is not the entirety of their function wundt analyzed that emotion portrays both expression and communication now emotion as irrational one of the oldest issues of emotion is the one that believes emotion indicates inferiority because why we get emotional now in early psychology itwas believed that passion that is emotion was a part of the soul inherited from the animals and that it must be controlled solomon identified that in the romantic movement of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries reason and emotion were thought to be opposites because this was also the part of discussion that it is instinct or a kind of deliberate activity because emotion means you know sometimes fear panicky passion cry that is sometimes instinctalso so it it it has also been discussed as the emotions were ah thought to be opposite of reason and logic and emotion now emotion as physiological physiological that is the body responses to emotion originate in the central nervous system because the mind and the body as we keep on discussing i mean not separate from each other what is required for a a complete action is the integrityso the autonomic nervous system and the endocrine system some of the responses include heart rate sweating rate sweating rate and depth of respiration and electrical activity in the brain many researchers have attempted to find a connection between a specific emotions and a corresponding pattern of physiological responses although it is said that these attempts have rendered unsuccessful conclusions now theories of emotional response because we ah were discussing the early theories and in early theory some of the vital facts just came up that sometime it is also considered that emotion and the passion and the behavior to different opposite dimensionsnow the theories of emotional response the significant theories of emotion can be divided into three primary categories physiological neurological and cognitive physiological theories imply that activity within the body can be accountable for emotion neurological theories suggest that activity within the brain leads to emotional responses while cognitive theories reason that thoughts and other mental activity have a vital role in the a stimulation of emotionsnow common sense suggests that people first become consciously aware of their emotions and that the physiological responses follow shortly after there are few well known theories which contradict the common sense theory because what is common sense and what are the theories based on emotionality so the first is james lange theory of emotion now the james lange theory of emotion was proposed by psychologist william james and physiologist karl lang that this theory suggests that emotions occur as a result of physiological responses to outside is stimuli or events for example this theory suggests that if someone is driving down the road and looks at the headlight of another car heading toward them then in their lane their heart begins to raise now a physiological response this is a physiological response the ah high rate of heart palpitation and then they become afraid fear begin the emotion and a start feeling afraid because for pulse is also high now this theory of emotion holds that as you see a snake your pulse races and you feel afraid because your pulse is racing so event now in james lange theory of emotion we can put first the event then arousal then interpretation and then emotion now event now anything occurs any incident that disturbed your body and mind arousal some kind of sensation passion take place and then interpretation what kind of sensation excitement passion and then finally it is emotion canon bad theory of emotion the canon bad theory which was conceptualized by walter kanan and philip bad suggests that emotions and their corresponding physiological responses are experienced simultaneously thalamus send signals we all know thalamus situated here and controlling the heat of our body so thalamus send signal simultaneously to the cortex and the autonomic nervous system so the canon bad theory holds that again you see a snake the information is sent to the thalamus which relays the signal is simultaneously to the cortex that is brain and to the autonomic nervous system now in this particular theory what happened first event then arousal and emotion both at the same time it is automatic so event arousal and emotion both at the same time now such a singer theory of emotion so this is the first first a james land second cannon bad and third sacher singer theory of emotion a stanley sacher and ziram singer proposed a theory also known as the two factor theory of emotion which implies emotion have two factors physical arousal and cognitive level now this suggests that the physiological activity occurs first then it must cognitively be distinguished as the cause of the arousal and leveled as an emotion using the example of someone seeing a car coming towards them in their lane their heart would a start to race and they would identify that they must be afraid if their heart is racing and from there they would begin to feel fear now in this case what happened it is event then arousal then a reasoning because whensensation excitement take place what is the reason and then emotion so we have different stages james land and cannon bard and in sature single theory we have event then arousal then reasoning and then emotion now evolutionary theories which indicates innate reactions with little cognitive interpretation now evolutionary theories of emotion assume that emotions are innate that is cognitive again innate reactions that require little cognitive interpretation robert peel check nineteen eighty four nineteen ninety three has devised a model of how primary emotions blend together to form secondary emotions now lazarus theory lazarus theory a states that a thought must come before any emotion or physiological arousal we are a still discussing the theories related to emotionality so this is per have the fourth one that lazarus theory a stays that a thought must come before any emotion or physiological arousal in other words you must for think about your situationbefore you can experience an emotion now example that you are walking down a dark alley late at night you hear footsteps behindyou and you think it may be a mugger so you begin to tremble and your heart beats faster and your breathing depends and at the same time experience fear all together so in this condition what happened event then thought that is imagination that led to emotion andarousal together because the person concerned is not aware of who is coming it is only the foot a step so it is the kind of awareness so event then thought imagination emotion and arousal now facial feedback theory now according to facial feedback theory of emotion emotion is the experience of changes in our facial muscles in other words when we a smile with an experienced pleasure or happiness when we frown we then experience sadness it is the changes in ourfacial muscles that qr brain and provide the basis of our emotions just as there are an unlimited number of muscles of configurations in our face so two are there a seemingly unlimited number of emotions and face is the mirror of your emotion you are feeling even though it is innate in your heart your face reflects that so for example you are walking down a dark alley a late night you hear footage states behind you and your eyes widen out of fear your teeth clenched and your brain interprets these facial changes as the expression of fear therefore you experience the emotion of fear and the face is the clear indication of your feeling whether it is fear or happiness now in facial feedback theory it is event facial change and emotion event facial change and emotion
Now gender differences the opposition of rational thought and emotion because this is also one of the important point while i mean the ah researches going on a people discuss that there are differencein two gender i mean the two sexes also so the opposition of rational thought and emotion is believed to be paralleled by thesimilar opposition between male and female and a traditional view is that men are seen as rational and woman as emotional lacking rationality however in a spite of these ideas and in spite of gender differences in the prevalence of mood disorder the empiricalevidence on gender differences in emotional responding is mixed because there are some group who says that female are more emotional while mail are less emotional because the kind of brain a structure and the kind of the chemical reaction that take place in male and female totally different this is also one of the views but it is mixed because some of them are say that women have more power to digest any kind of feeling or emotion now expression of emotion across culture that is also one of the important points because when we talk of ethic and values because you see neurolinguistic programming is entirely based on belief and values and your opinion your perception so it is very important to know about the various culture as well so how emotions have been taken in various cultureso it is believed that there are six universal emotions which expand across all cultures now these emotions are happiness sadness anger fear surprise and disgust there is some argument that contempt should be combined with disgust though it is not as widely accepted now according to at man each of these emotions have universally corresponding facial expressions as well in addition to the facial expressions that are set to accompany each emotion there is alsoevidence to suggest that certain autonomic nervous system activity is associated with the three emotions of fear anger disgustnow i come nineteen ninety two theorizes that these a specific emotions are associated with the universal physiological responses due to evolve evolution and it will not be expected to observe the same physiological responses for emotion not a specifically linked to survival such as happiness or sadness now ekmans theories where early challenged by james a russell and have since been testedby a variety of researchers with ambiguous result this would seem to reflect methodological problem relating to both display rules and to the components of emotion now current thinking favors a mix of underlying universality combined with significant cultural differences in the articulation and expression of emotion so the fact that emotions serve different function in different culture must also betaken into account because this is also the part of communication and thus the part of neurolinguistic programming so various culture various emotion various gesture how to express in a particular situation is specifically that that or to know through the study ofculture now ability to comply with a request initiate and cease activities according to the situational demands to modulate the intensity frequency and duration of verbal and motor acts in social and educational setting to postpone acting upon a desired object goal and to generate socially approved behavior in the absence of external monitor now it is very important to go for self regulation because when we talk of emotionality the phrase self regulation automatically come how to control the emotion especially in a professional world in a public place that is why it is very important to know the various aspect of culture communication as well as the expression of the various culture now at this point it is very important to know the difference between feeling and emotionrather in other what you can say that what is feeling and what is emotion are they one or there is distinction between the two now feelings are sparked by emotions and colored by thoughts memories and images that have become subconsciously linked with that particular emotion for a person but it works the other way around too for example just thinking about something threatening can trigger an emotional fear response while individual emotions aretemporary the feelings they evoke may persist and grow over a lifetime because emotions cause subconscious feelings which in turn initiate emotions and so on once life can become a never ending cycle of painful and confusing emotions which produce negativefeelings which cause more negative emotion without one ever really knowing why we have also discussed that when it is the anchoring the the aspect of anchoring or a stage fear it is negative feeling that plays a vital role if your natural negative feeling more and more in your mind you cannot get success even in anchoring and on this stage if you are doing something now emotions play out in the theatre of the body this is the body and feelings play out in the theater of the mind feeling means you realize means you accept means you get the sensation and that turns into emotion and as we discuss that sadness happiness cry panic fear all such emotions which we show through physical gesture and posture so emotions are lower level responses occurring in the subcortical regions of the brain the amygdala and the ventromedial prefrontal cortices creating biochemical reactions in ones body altering ones physical a state now they or easily help our species survive by producing quick reactions to threat reward and everything in between in their environments emotional reactions are coded in our genes and while they do vary slightly individually and depending on circumstances are generally universally similar across all humans and even other species for example one a smiles and ones dog wags it tailnow feelings originate in the neocortical regions of the brain our mental associations and reactions to emotions and our subjective being influenced by personal experience belief and memories if feeling is the mental portrayal of what is going on in your body when you have an emotion and is the byproduct of your brain perceiving and assigning meaning to the emotion feelings are the next thing that happens after having an emotion involved cognitiveinput usually subconscious and cannot be measured preciselywhile basic emotions are instinctual and common to us all the meaning they take on and the feelings they prompt are individual based on our programming past and present feelings are shaped by a persons temperament and experiences and vary greatly from person to person and situation to situation so once emotions and feelings play a wonderful powerful role in how one experience and interact with the world because they are the driving force behind many behaviors helpful and unhelpful it is possible to react to emotions and the feelings they evoke which are guided by unconscious fear based perception which may not buy into anymore yet you are living your life making decisions and behaving according to these outdated tendencies leaving unaware like this almost always leads to problem and unhappiness in the long term now this is very important aspect to practice also because to control the environment or to control the nervous system you have to recognize your feeling as well as your emotion when feeling get intense so please never come to the point when your feeling get in tensedand turn into the emotion it is also true that every individual is different from other and the degree of emotionality varies from one person to other but a person who is excess emotional try to control the emotion through meditation through understanding other through talking to other through walking through engaging himself or herself in public dealing through knowing the people because neurolinguistic programming is something that also train you to control your emotion because in my opinion there is no place for emotionality in a professional world you have to be very professional you are sad you are happy you are very happy no need to think because no need no one is there to take care of it is you who has to take care and it is you who to make a proper balance between mind and body thank you very much
