The Levels of Emotion Chart provides descriptions of how we FEEL and FUNCTION when we’re experiencing different levels of negative emotion. The levels range from 0-10. At Level 0, we are at peace. At Level 10, we are desperately overwhelmed with negative emotion. The far right columns show how active Emotional Mind and Rational Mind are at each level. It’s just a guess though! This chart helps to gauge or measure our emotional intensity and to better understand the effect our emotional level has on our ability to participate effectively in our life.
