I was reading the other day about people who lack the ability to recognize emotions in others. Or, I guess, more specifically, lack the ability to recognize the expressions of emotion on the faces of others. Like, have you seen the test where you are asked to identify a smile as real or fake? Turns out that not everyone can do that. I sometimes think I have trouble with things like this, but I am pretty good at recognizing a real smile. And in thinking about such things, I wanted to try and break down emotions into simple shapes and thus we have the emotional cupcake:
Now, clearly there are more emotions to be considered. This is just a beginning. But once I saw all those little cupcake faces stacked up, I couldn't help myself. Also, Emotional Cupcake is the name of my new band.
