Intensity – some emotions are more extreme than others Theories We think that something happens in our environment (a scary event) and we react by avoiding it. Seeing the stimulus, feeling the emotion, reacting. This isn’t the case though, we experience the stimulus, react, then feel an emotion James Lange – We feel emotions after we react to stimuli.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
