About Basic Emotions Scale
The BES is a self-report measure that contains 20 emotions which are rated on a 7-point Likert scale (1 = ‗not at all‘ through to 7 = ‗all the time‘). Based on Johnson-Laird and Oakley‘s (1989) linguistic analyses of emotion, the 20 emotions in the BES can be considered to encompass the five basic emotions of anger (frustration, irritation, aggression, jealousy, resentment), sadness (despair, misery, defeated, gloominess, mournful), disgust (shame, guilt, repulsion, humiliated, blameworthy), fear (anxiety, nervousness, tense, worried, shy) and happiness (joy, elation, pride, loving, cheerful, Power, 2006).
