I just came across this picture and I was wondering if it may be helpful. I myself tend to describe feelings using the basics - happy, sad, angry -, but maybe I'll start trying to be more specific.

Thanks for the link, tatals.

I have quite strong alexithymic traits - identifying my own emotions is very difficult for me, sometimes. But I often recognise them more easily if I see a written example of the feeling, or analyse the words that might describe it. The wheel could be a very useful tool for me to focus on my emotion by narrowing down the words step-by-step. Thanks again!

Oh wow, this is exactly what I needed actually, I too usually just describe them as "happy/sad,etc".
I have a daughter, who is NT and it has been hard teaching her different ways to describe her feelings because I don't know how, so this will also come in handy for her.
