Michael Jackson

University of Chicago Press

Emotional intensity is seldom constant. In adolescence, moods and emotions are typically more volatile than in old age. Moreover, we are moved by tenderness, joy, fear, rage, shame, and envy to different degrees depending on circumstances. If emotions are heightened in a moment of danger, boredom will involve depressed feelings and lack of movement. As the etymology of the word “emotion” suggests, strong feelings move us, agitate us, and stir us to physical action.

Keywords:   emotional intensity, adolescence, physical action
