Danes have a stable government, low levels of public corruption, and access to high-quality education and health care. The country does have the the highest taxes in the world, but the vast majority of Danes happily pay: They believe higher taxes can create a better society.
This diagram above is from a course on user interaction design. The teaching: Motivation is tied to emotion. (Agreed.) It’s important to understand that when designing user experience. (Agreed.) And here they all are in one useful diagram! (Agreed…until I started thinking about it.)
Watt Smith lists all words she considers as defining distinct emotions. There are a number of relevant ones in languages other than English. I’ll get to those below. But first, let me quote at length from the last relevant entry, Warm Glow. (Emphasis mine.)
(Relatively) Easy Group Living: The Chart vs Keeping Count
I’ve lived with groups of people my entire life. Currently (at age 65) my wife and I live in a house with another couple and the last of the three ‘kids’, our son, Griffin, in his early 20s. We bought the house together some 25 years ago. This is not two flats. It’s one house with one kitchen, 2 master bed rooms and 3 other bedrooms plus living room, dining room, family room, and library.
Living with groups of people can create some conflict…most often around household chores. Thirty five years ago we figured out The Chart. It was a break-through!
Potluck dinners scale. More people showing up = more food. Sharing food and conversation is the keystone tribal/family activity.
