Hey everyone! Have you already done the quiz that’s taking over TikTok? This is a quiz about what human feeling you are. Today we have prepared something similar for you. Answer twenty questions and see what your result will be!

In normal language usage, the noun “feeling” is often used as being the same as emotion. However, in psychology, and in this article, the feeling is used as a technical term which means a generalized bodily consciousness of a physiological sensation. It can be termed as a perception of physiological events within the body. Importantly, the feeling is also termed a self-contained physiological experience.

The feeling was originally used to describe the physical sensation of touch through either experience or perception. The word is also used to describe other experiences, such as “a feeling of warmth” and of sentience in general. In psychology, the term feeling is closely related to, but not the same as emotion. “Feeling” usually refers to the conscious subjective experience of emotions. The study of subjective experiences is referred to as phenomenology, whereas psychotherapy refers to a process whereby a therapist helps a client understand their own feelings and experiences. Feelings are also known as a state of consciousness.

The modern conception of affect developed in the 19th century with Wilhelm Wundt. The word comes from the German Gefühl, meaning “feeling.”

Several experiments have been conducted in the study of social and psychological affective preferences (i.e., what people like or dislike). Specific research has been done on preferences, attitudes, impression formation, and decision-making. This research contrasts findings with recognition memory (old-new judgments), allowing researchers to demonstrate reliable distinctions between the two. Affect-based judgments and cognitive processes have been examined with noted differences indicated, and some argue that affect and cognition are under the control of separate and partially independent systems that can influence each other in a variety of ways (Zajonc, 1980). Both affect and cognition may constitute independent sources of effects within systems of information processing. Others suggest emotion is a result of an anticipated, experienced, or imagined outcome of an adaptational transaction between organism and environment, therefore cognitive appraisal processes are keys to the development and expression of an emotion (Lazarus, 1982).

The neuroscientist Antonio Damasio distinguishes between emotions and feelings: Emotions refer to mental images (i.e. representing either internal or external states of reality) and the bodily changes accompanying them, whereas feelings refer to the perception of bodily changes. In other words, emotions contain a subjective element and a 3rd person’s observable element, whereas feelings are subjective and private.

In general, the terms emotion and feelings are used as synonyms or interchangeable, but actually, they are not. The feeling is a conscious experience created after the physical sensation or emotional experience. (Emotions are felt through emotional experience. They are manifested in the unconscious mind and can be associated with thoughts, beliefs, desires, and actions.

There are two main types of emotion work: evocation and suppression. Evocation is used to obtain or bring up a certain feeling and suppression is used to put away or hide certain unwanted feelings. Emotion work is done by an individual, others upon them, or them upon others. Emotion work is done to achieve a certain feeling that one believes one should feel.

Three more specific types of emotional work are cognitive, bodily, and expressive. Cognitive changes images, bodily changes physical aspects, and expressive changes gestures. A sad person uses expressive emotion work to lift their spirits by trying to smile. A person who is stressed may use bodily emotion work by, for example, trying to breathe slower to lower stress levels.

Emotion work allows individuals to change their feelings so that the emotions suit the current situation (or are deemed appropriate). Since individuals want to fit in and be seen as normal, they are constantly working on their feelings to fit the situations they are in.

Class differences influence and varies how a parent raises their child. Middle-class parents tend to raise their children through the use of feelings and lower-class parents tend to raise their children through behavior control. Middle-class parents and lower-class parents raise their children to be like them in feeling and behavior-wise. Middle-class children get reprimanded for feeling the wrong way and lower-class children are punished for behaving badly.

Lionel Trilling, an author, and literary critic described the technique that the middle- and the lower-class parents use. Under-working and overworking their children’s feelings cause them to seek approval of their feelings in the future. When children of lower-class and of working-class families join the workforce, they are less prepared for emotional management than middle-class children. However, the working-class and the middle-class tend to complain of over-management or micromanagement of feelings that distract them from actual work.

A new quiz that claims to reveal what type of “human feeling” you are has taken over TikTok.

Millions of users on the social media platform who have taken the viral quiz and posted their results with the hashtag #humanfeelings, which has been viewed more than 4.5 million times at the time of writing.

The short format videos are usually accompanied by the same audio and a photograph of the user, and results range from emotions such as “sincere love” to “despondency” to “tired”.

The quiz is originally generated in Russian and requires players who do not read Russian to translate the page in order to answer the questions.

Here’s how you can take the “human feelings” quiz.

Clicking on this link will take you to the UK-based website Uquiz, which contains quizzes from all over the world and is where you can find the “human feelings” quiz.

If you are unable to read Russian, you can translate the page into English in order to take part.

The page will show the title “What kind of human feeling are you?”, followed by smaller text that reads: “Based on my personal opinion and site algorithms. I hope you will like it!”

It is unclear whose opinion or what algorithms are used to generate the results of the quiz.

After inputting your name, you can click on “Start Quiz” to begin.

Due to translation limitations, some of the questions and answers that follow are phrased strangely. For example, the second question reads: “Choose a random event from my life suitable for you.”

There are a total of 11 questions in the quiz. Question four requires you to choose a picture of a beverage, while question nine asks users: “What words do you want to say to the person/people but can’t?”

After answering all 11 questions, the quiz assigns you to a “human feeling”, which users have been posting on TikTok and Twitter.

One result, “true love”, states: “Definitely very strong and wonderful people. Your loved ones are very lucky to have you, and you, too, you know, are huge smarties .

“Probably sometime in your life something terrible happened and you broke down, piece by piece picking yourself up. But I’m glad it’s okay now.”

Another result is “despondency” and the description reads: “Not far from humility but you still try to fight. And I’m proud of you. It hurts and very often you want to quit everything.

“You have lost interest in life, you don’t want it to end, but also to keep it going. I keep my fingers crossed for you! Everything will surely work out.”

Under the result “tired”, it says: “You are tired but not just the kind of tired that you need sleep, you are tired with others, yourself and the world in general and you just want a break but allow yourself some self care time and spend some time with those who make you happy, I promise it will be better and remember you are an amazing person – stop putting yourself down.”

While those who post their results do not usually divulge why they took the quiz, some people have indicated that they find the results relatable or reassuring.

One TikTok user who got the result “nostalgia” said it “hit home”, while another who got “true love” said her result made her “feel happy”.

When you see people smiling, you know they’re happy. When they’re crying, you know they’re sad. Across cultures, recognizable facial expressions and certain reactions have become associated with the basic emotions. You pick up on these visual cues from person to person, but do you know what goes into them?

Below, we explore the theories of basic emotions, as well as how they’re represented and how they differ from complex emotions.

A widely accepted theory of basic emotions and their expressions, developed Paul Ekman, suggests we have six basic emotions. They include sadness, happiness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust.

An emotional state characterized by feelings of disappointment, grief or hopelessness

Expression: Frown, loss of focus in eyes, tears

A pleasant emotional state that elicits feelings of joy, contentment and satisfaction

Expression: Smile, laughter

A primal emotion that is important to survival and triggers a fight or flight response

Expression: Wide eyes, tense stretched lips

An emotional state leading to feelings of hostility and frustration

Expression: Glare, eyebrows drawn together, tight lips

A brief emotional state, either positive or negative, following something unexpected

Expression: Raised brows, open mouth, gasp

A strong emotion that results in feeling repulsed

Expression: Wrinkled nose, gagging, no eye contact

Many other theories of basic emotions exist. They include, but aren’t limited to:









Unlike basic emotions, complex emotions vary in their appearances across people and cultures. Some examples of complex emotions include grief, jealousy and regret.

Complex emotions are made up of two or more basic emotions. For example, fear, anger and disgust make up the complex emotion of hate.

Emotions, both basic and complex, play a huge role in how we live our lives, our physical health and our interpersonal relationships.
