What Is an Emotion?

" Emotion is a sudden outburst of sensations."

Emotions characterized by intense mental activity and a certain degree of pleasure or displeasure. If we ask someone about emotions, they might say it is a feeling, sentiment, reaction, passion, excitement, or sensation. Emotion is a spontaneous feeling arising from a person, thing, or experience. Emotions are unique to each individual, are perception based, and subjective experiences. It could be argued that emotions are sole reason for therapeutic interventions.
