Mark Manson from the article Fuck Your Feelings introduces this table of what he calls "meta-feelings":
|Feeling Bad About Feeling Bad (Self-Loathing)
||Feeling Bad About Feeling Good (Guilt)
|Feeling Good About Feeling Bad (Self-Righteousness)
||Feeling Good About Feeling Good (Ego/Narcissism)
Is this chart based on any theory? At first it seems like to be the same with meta-emotion, but reading that I feel like meta-emotion is more about parenting style, and focusing more on feeling bad about feelings (the top quadrants).
Meta-emotions can be classified into four types: negative-negative (e.g., feeling embarrassed about feeling sad), negative-positive (e.g., feeling guilty about feeling happy), positive-positive (e.g., feeling hopeful about feeling relieved), and positive-negative (e.g., feeling pleased about feeling angry)
The positive-negative and positive-positive emotions in meta-emotion doesn't seem to match with the bottom row of the table (self-righteousness and ego/narcissism). The chart also reminds me more about moral emotions.
