During an interview with the rapper 50 Cent, a journalist asked the hip hop performer why he was so prone to singing about violence. 50 Cent replied, “Because anger is my favorite emotion.” What an insightful, if somewhat disconcerting, response. We play to the emotions we most enjoy. Asking yourself what emotions you most favor explains much about you. Your favorite emotion is likely the one you most often generate on purpose. For instance, those who prefer the emotion of happiness will find situations and experiences where they will likely feel happy.
