In today’s age of hyper-self-awareness, the ability to label our emotions is often celebrated. Self-styled emotion experts publish lengthy lists of emotion words to help people articulate feelings as precisely as possible, and it is often assumed that people who use rich emotional vocabularies are emotionally and physically healthier than those who do not. However, the science behind our emotional experiences and our verbal behaviour is still in its infancy, and our research suggests that the current wisdom on emotion labeling doesn’t give us the full picture.

Dr Boyd is a Lecturer in Behavioural Analytics at the University of Lancaster.
