VERBOS DE EMOCIÓN (SUBJETIVIDAD): EXPLICACIÓN When the first verb or expression (main clause; before “que” ) reflects an emotion or a type of subjective opinion, the second verb (dependent clause; after “que” ) must be written in the subjunctive. Infusing the action with a personal edge opens it up to interpretation and therefore it lacks the cold certainty of indicative expressions like saber que ” or “ es cierto que .“ I. Verbos de emoción : If the first verb implies an emotional or subjective response to what someone else is doing, the second verb must be in the subjunctive: Me molesta que hagas ruido toda la noche . (It bothers me that you make noise all night long.) Nos sorprende que Alicia no sepa la respuesta . (We’re surprised [it’s surprising to us] that Alicia doesn’t know the answer.) El plomero siente que no pueda arreglar el lavabo hasta el lunes . (The plumber is sorry that he can’t fix the sink until Monday.)
