The 4 Core Emotion System filters all types of emotional expression to our 4 uniquely identifiable core emotions, which are also globally accepted as general states of being. These 4 core emotions are Joy Fear, Sadness and Anger. The system is designed to quantify our qualitative emotional expressions to advance emotional intelligence for man and machine.

We like to think of ourselves as rational creatures, but most of our decisions are driven by our emotional connection to the world. Emotions are at the core of what makes us human and influence our perceptions of reality.  Reason is usually the scaffolding we place around our emotionally driven thoughts and actions. Unfortunately, our brain has been elusive in regards to the collaboration between reason and emotion, but recent developments in technology allow us to quantify our emotions, solutions and actions on a global scale with big data.

The 4 Core Emotion System analyzes how all types of emotional expression align with 4 core emotions with consideration for related biological changes and states of thought corresponding to the nearest core emotion. Expressions of emotion include facial, vocal, body language, physiological, artistic, and social communication.  Our system is uniquely designed to sort and filter all these types of emotional expression with ease and intuitiveness, opening the door to endless opportunities in multiple business sectors. Let us explore the possibilities together.

Facial – Expressions of emotion in the face are produced by 43 muscles and currently offers the most reliable real time data.

Vocal – Emotion is revealed in vocal intonations. The physical biological components include lungs, vocal folds, and the articulators.

Body Language – Analysis of emotional expression centered around how we use our muscles to communicate is crucial to unlocking emotional intelligence. This includes gestures, eye movement, touch and use of space.

Physiological – Understanding the internal biological reactions to an event or thought triggered by an emotion will help advancements in many fields of scientific research.

Artistic – Emotion is expressed and perceived in photography, paintings, literature, dance, music, theater, cinema, sculpture, picture form, and architecture.

Social Communication – Emotional expression through social communication may be analyzed on an individual level or through a data set.  

Emotions are at the core of what makes us human and influence our perceptions of reality. This influences behavior and decision making on just everything we do. 4CES simplifies and empowers emotional intelligence and aligns with advances in artificial intelligence. The expressions of emotion noted above may be captured in real time and at scale to help advance emotional intelligence for man and machine.
