Part I: Complete this diary over a period of 3 days. During waking hours, write down the various emotions that you experience at preset times during the day. You must write down your emotions at least 7 times each day, and you may select when those times will be. If you want, you may use Izard’s Differential Emotions Scale (which is: anger, contempt, disgust, distress, fear, guilt, interest, joy, shame, and surprise) or any other emotion scale you choose to define your emotions. After the end of the three days, compute the frequency of each emotion experienced across the total reporting period. (For example, anger=, joy=, sad=, anxious=, etc.)
Part II: After completing your Diary of Emotions reflect on and analyze your emotions using theories and concepts you have learned. Be sure to address the biological and cognitive components of emotions and moods. Which physiological (internal and expressive body changes) and cognitive (specific thoughts occurring during an emotion) components of emotions did you recognize in your own experience? Explain your answer.
Please post both of the completed parts I and II of the assignment.
