As a matter of fact, animals are equally beings, just as human beings. The only difference between animals beings and humans beings is that animals do not talk. ^ But as far as emotion is concern, animals have emotions perhaps even more than humans. Why do i say this? Because if you put your trust on your animals (for example: your pets) once they captivate that emotion or feeling, they will never betray you. Whereas humans are tantamount to betrayal. ^ So to answer your question. Yes, animals do have emotions. Even more than humans.9Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppjesus jesus 17 Thoughts 6 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 85 TRP View Profile jesus jesus Seeker Dropped a think on July 4, 2020 at 9:14 pm Clearly humans do, and we are animals, so it is hypothetically possible for non-human animals. If you’ve ever owned a dog you certainly have seen excitement, and also fear and anger. Loneliness is huge. Dogs are pretty transparent about worry, guilt, and embarrassment too. He question might be which human emotions are not in range for non-human animals. A dog in a pack has “status and role”, essential aspect of social interaction, so they have the basics of an “ego”: it so clear that some animals think highly of themselves, or little ofnthemselves, sometimes generally and sometimes by situation. And they also see other animals as having status and role as well. This means a base layer of empathy, as they have to be able to project a role into others in the pack, including the role of alpha possibly on a human owner. Some animals will see humans being intimate and will jump a leg or intercede, so their ability to infer and project emotion crosses species.8Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppCHANTEL SMITH Visual Artist at ARTJOURNAL 48 Thoughts 93 Thinkings 1 Vibration 1k TRP View Profile CHANTEL SMITH Explainer Visual Artist at ARTJOURNAL Dropped a think on June 4, 2020 at 1:15 am I would indeed argue that they do have a structure in their brain that releases electrons to fire up their emotion system. Like experiencing guilt they would have to have a super ego to admit theh did something wrong, when they watch and know why you are scolding them. Maybe they have endorphins in their brain ,a chemical that ignites and guarantees emotions to drop or go sky high, since they are happy when they wiggle their tails and overexcited when ,especially dogs jumps you over when you get home. Dogs do things that will annoy you on purpose, this could be their brains ID structure called the selfish side. So overall i would say that all animals have emotions some are controlled by their nature in general and some are controlled by their brains where some animals think very cleverly than others .7Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLearn moreEnglish From Heart Education, Relation, Food, Health, peace 0 Thoughts 22 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 117 TRP View Profile English From Heart Enlightened Education, Relation, Food, Health, peace Dropped a think on May 13, 2020 at 3:28 am Yes they have emotions, because God created them as us to live on earth, the only difference is they dont have speaking ability like us to express their emotions. But more better they express it by showing their action, affection towards humans. The live examples of it are the pets living in the human houses. Because nowadays animals are more affectionate then human.4Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppBakoma Hanricharms 4 Thoughts 192 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 657 TRP View Profile Bakoma Hanricharms Teacher Dropped a think on March 31, 2020 at 8:46 pm Yes of course animals do have feeling as well I you hit a dog backs and round away because it feels pain .and when thier mating period arrive they move from place to place in search of thier partner with this fact I strongly believe that they have feeling (emmotion)3Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppameerhamza36609 8 Thoughts 34 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 209 TRP View Profile ameerhamza36609 Enlightened Dropped a think on June 21, 2020 at 5:37 pm This think was edited. Emotion is defined as any mental experience with high intensity and high hedonic content. The existence and nature of emotions in animals are believed to be correlated with those of humans and to have evolved from the same mechanisms. Believers, however, typically opine that animals are capable of a range of emotions, such as happiness, sadness, empathy, grief, curiosity, anger, anxiety and fear. So a naughty dog that goes on the carpet and gnaws up everything is probably not actively trying to punish its absent person for being gone so long. But it might be feeling lonely and anxious, and not know how to behave when left on its own for so much time. Emotions might have evolved out of social necessity, helping animals adapt to different situations. Animals raised by themselves don’t learn all the social niceties involved in getting along with others. Animals respond to the environment much as humans do, reacting emotionally to others and even becoming stressed and anxious in times of danger. These emotions have a marked effect on their behaviour but while researchers may never be able to know how animals actually feel, studies have found that there are definite behavioural similarities in emotional expression between animals and humans. So,we can say that animals also have emotions like humans.1Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppSnacks Daps 0 Thoughts 19 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 76 TRP View Profile Snacks Daps Seeker Dropped a think on May 26, 2020 at 5:13 pm animals are capable of an range of emotions,such as happiness,sadness,empathy,grief,curiosity,anger,anxiety and fear1Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppModika Linus 0 Thoughts 48 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 166 TRP View Profile Modika Linus Enlightened Dropped a think on May 18, 2020 at 11:40 pm Yes they do have emotions because they show many emotional behaviors like crying,been happy and even have sexual intercourse too1Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppAYUK MIKE tataw 0 Thoughts 223 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 582 TRP View Profile AYUK MIKE tataw Teacher Dropped a think on May 25, 2020 at 1:21 pm Yes animals has emotion, their make love to each other, and once one is death they feel the pain for each other, so animal has emotion for each other..0Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppDexter Dave De Guzman Chemical Engineering 0 Thoughts 29 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 132 TRP View Profile Dexter Dave De Guzman Enlightened Chemical Engineering Dropped a think on May 22, 2020 at 2:02 pm Absolutely, since the way you treat them reflects on their behavior around you.0Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppBetafo Kingsley 0 Thoughts 88 Thinkings 0 Vibrations 221 TRP View Profile Betafo Kingsley Enlightened Dropped a think on May 10, 2020 at 11:41 pm Yeah animal have emotion because blood is flowing in them,and they need to multipled more children0Login to Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLogin or Register, to drop a think.
