Emotions Survey

Interim Observations

Innervate Ltd is currently inviting people to share their thoughts and views relating to key words that they may use through life to describe an emotion. 

We are engaging in this work in the hope it can help to acknowledge and support a message that: recognition of emotions, resulting from either a physical or mental life event is a significant and key step in supporting the health and wellbeing of people. The driving force behind this work has arisen out of the personal experience of Dr Neil Bindemann, the MD of Innervate Ltd, who was diagnosed with a non malignant brain tumour in 2015. He is behind the creation of a new app being developed by Innervate Ltd called:

On this page we present interim data charts from the survey results that have been generated by asking the following question:

" From this list [a list of emotion words presented in the survey], please select, by clicking the box next to a word, 18 words you are most likely to use, at anytime going forward in your life, which could/would help you describe a feeling/emotion about any aspect of your life (not necessarily right now). A good range of emotion words (from positive to negative) within that selection is what we are interested in..."

By using the dropdown below, you can select one of the words listed in the survey eg 'Anxious', and then you will be presented with two charts showing the other words typically selected by all those people who selected 'Anxious', whether having experienced a significant life event or not. 

To strengthen the significance of these findings, we invite more people to take part in the survey, which is at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/NWKD9BS


All survey responses (unfiltered)


When comparing charts, please also note the difference between the no of +ve emotion words vs -ve emotions, ranked in the top 15.
