Robert Plutchik created a “Wheel of Emotions” in 1980. It is so constructed to illustrate what he considered to be basic and composite emotions. (source article in Wikipedia)

  Wheel of Emotions
  Basic emotions:
  Anger
  Low: annoyance
  High: rage
  Disgust
  Low: boredom
  High:loathing
  Sadness
  Low: pensiveness
  High: grief
  Surprise
  Low: distraction
  High: amazement
  Fear
  Low: apprehension
  High: terror
  Trust
  Low: acceptance
  High: admiration
  Joy
  Low: serentiy
  High: ecstasy
  Anticipation
  Low: interest
  High: vigilance
  Each of the basic emotions can be expressed over a range of intensity.
  Advanced emotions are combinations of basic emotions
  Optimism (Anticipation +Joy) with oppositie: Disappointment
  Love = Joy + Acceptance with Remorse as opposite
  Submission= Acceptance plus Fear with Contempt as opposite
  Awe = Fear+Surprise with oppposite being Aggressiveness
  Disappointment=Surprise +Sadness with opposite being Optimism
  Remorse= Sadness plus Disguste with oppositie beng Love
  Contempt = Disgust + anger with opposite being Submission
  Aggressiveness = Anger + Anticipation with Oppositie being Awe
  Then there are grouped emotions
