Functional state E - ethics of emotions

Emotional ethics (E): rhetoric, pathos, slogans, aphorisms; sociability, demonstrativeness; passions, desires, mood; hormonal system.

While being emotionally excited, a person loses objective rigors of judgment and plunges into the turbulent currents of their subjective preferences and feelings. Their consciousness makes very biased assessments, which are just an expression of perceived value for an object or a person. The thought process takes form of a speech rich in intonation, fast in pace, and lengthy in verbal content. Thinking proceeds as a dialogue with a real or imagined interlocutor.

A person in a persistent E-state claims the social role of an emotional "enabler". Within a team, they pay attention to the mood of people and actively influence those around who deviate from the general emotional state of a group. The task of the emotional enablers, depending on the situation, is either to raise everybody's mood, cheer them up or to inspire, or to express negative emotions, pick on people, stir up some trouble. After having emotionally involved everyone in the productive process, the E-type switches to external communication — making connections with other teams and assessing the state of affairs in them. This second informal role is called the resource explorer.

In psychological terms, the E-state is expressed as an exciting strong desire or passion. It can spill out in the form of turbulent joy or inconsolable grief. The E-user feels others like they feel themselves. This is the essence of empathy, which is so necessary for a practicing psychologist. The E-state is rational, that is, it is realized by a person, but it is very difficult to manage. Passion, whether it is joy or sorrow, is always one-sided: it concentrates all mental resources on one person or a group of people, so it deprives them of any choice in the matter.

The physical clues that a person is immersed in an E-state are well recognized. These are wide-open burning eyes, rich facial expressions, quick and expressive gestures, erratic and impetuous movements, changes in complexion (suddenly turning red or pale). An ability to enter the E-state is necessary for anyone working on a stage and performing in front of an audience. The emotional expressiveness of an actor or a speaker is the main means of influencing the audience.
