different emotions

From wikipedia, some of these may be familiar, others not so...
  • Abhiman is an Indian term best described as a feeling of prideful loving anger.
  • Sukhi is an Indian term similar to peace and happiness.
  • Fureai: Fureai is a Japanese term used when feeling a sense of connectedness to someone else.
  • Rettokan is a Japanese term that means to feel inferior
  • Schadenfreude is a German term defined by German philosopher Theodor Adorno as "the largely unanticipated delight in the suffering of another which is cognized as trivial and/or appropriate".
Any others spring to mind?
