Plutchik's Emotion Circumplex: A visualization in three dimensions
Luc Latulippe is right: this Emotion Circumplex by Robert Plutchik is mesmerizing. Used to describe how emotions are related, the circumplex 3D model supports a deeper understanding of the relationships between the primary emotions and their derivatives as well as the relationship between emotional groups by including a sense of volume and a more precise illustration of the interface / influence between the emotions.
