Are fear and desire located on the opposite sides of a spectrum or are they more like filters/lenses through which one can look simultaneously?

The Atlas of personality, emotion and behaviour (Mobbs, 2020) is able to visualise emotions in two dimensions: affiliation and dominance. Fear is considered submissive and disaffiliative. Desire is more dominant and intrapersonal, that is, in itself neither affiliative or disaffiliative.
