Five theories of emotion try to give explanation to the interpretation for this occurrence; however this article will envelop the James-Lange, Lazarus, and Facial Feedback Hypothesis theories with a justification of the experimental and correlation research methods. Within a human beings motivation is emotion which is a vital aspect to personality and can make humans perform in a negative or positive way. Emotions influence all humans to motivate from internal or external dynamics. Emotion is defined as "a universal, functional reaction to an external stimulus event, temporarily integrating physiological, cognitive, phenomenological, and behavioral channels that facilitate fitness-enhancing, environment-shaping responses to the current situation" (Deckers, 2010, p. 5).

Three different conclusions of the research as in negative, positive, and no correlation can be found. If variables decrease or increase all together, a positive correlation will be symbolized. If one increase's while the other decreases, a negative correlation is symbolized. [...]

[...] Joy, love, fear, grief, and anger are all the principal human emotions. Each one specifies a condition of some sort of arousal, a state of affairs that can activate some actions and deter others. These positions are associated with distinctive moods, and they have distinct bodily expressions. The dynamics that start diverse emotions are physical alterations in a person's body in correlation to the cause the individual gives for the physical changes (Schachter, 2010), (Singer, 2010). This notion states that emotions come from individuals' accounts of their own circumstances after the individual has been physiologically stimulated. [...]
