List of feelings and emotions in Japanese

Remember that Japanese is a very complex language, and there are several different words that can have the same meaning in addition to others. Perhaps my choice of words is not the most popular, or the most used.

Remembering that the list below has not only adjectives. Sometimes the Japanese end up using other types of words to indicate the quality, feeling or emotion of people. They even use verbs as adjectives. So the list below is quite mixed.
