  1. Depending on the classification you choose. It's like distinguishing between feelings and emotions: they can be considered synonymous (namely, psychologists, I don't mean ordinary understanding), but they can distinguish, and at the same time distinguish based on different parameters.

    If there are at least 5-7 different classifications of anatomical narrowing of the female pelvis in obstetrics, then in medicine! with the same pelvis meter in the deep-thinking doctor's paws! – what about the variety of definitions of “feelings”, “emotions”, “sensations” to talk about.�

    For me, the feeling, as in the answer by Vasily Tararyshkin, is about the form of perception of information from receptors. But I don't make a practical distinction between emotion and feeling (for myself and my work). – Well, that's it, and I would consider myself a disgraced ignoramus, but, fortunately for myself, I know that-nicho, quite a variant among “real psychologists”… so you can also live)

    However, it is very interesting to interpret that – if you correctly understood Gennady Tarasov – feelings are at the stage of (early?) pre-contact with the need, and feelings are already closer to contact and further along the contact cycle. I never thought so, but-yes, you can certainly do that.�

    The point here is not to find the” most authoritative “or” most scientific-scientific ” definition. Slightly or very different versions of definitions are more likely to be required for a specific task. For example, you can talk to a student of a particular school in a common language, or directly rely on one of the models in working with a client.

  2. “The officer says, lisping:' Don't get a visa, Dovlatov! Don't give me a good-looking visa! Not a visa! I don't make fun of you!”

    �And then Lance Corporal Petrov goes out of action. And in the frosty silence that follows, he exclaims out smartly:: “Comrade Major! Spit the horseradish out of your mouth first!”

    Petrov was given eight days in the brig.”

    (S. Dovlatov, “Notebooks”)

    The feeling is what the officer lacked from Dovlatov's combat training.

    The feeling is what he experienced from Petrov's remark.

  3. It all depends on the context.

    Let's turn to general psychology. Sensations are the result of a stimulus acting on certain receptors: light on the eye, pressure or temperature on the skin, sound on the ear, smell on the nose, etc
    . A feeling is a person's personal relationship to the world around them and to himself. The sources of feelings and emotions are real objects and phenomena of the external or (!) inner world of a person. Therefore, from the point of view of science, the concepts are related as cold and triangle.

    If you refer to the explanatory dictionary, then the sensation is described in the meaning of “experience, feeling”. Therefore, from a household point of view, there may not be any differences.

  4. What a wonderful question!

    To separate these concepts, we need several categories, such as: intensity, time, differentiation, amplitude, and a couple more. I'll try to use simple words on the example of anxiety.

    1. The feeling – does not differ! The feeling is always different!

    Example: the feeling of anxiety, it is also a feeling of anxiety in Africa. Anxiety is not a feeling. In anxiety, each person may have different feelings in any particular situation – fear, anger, shame, guilt, etc. Depending on how developed your emotional intelligence is, you can quickly recognize a feeling from a sensation, or you can live your life without knowing what is hidden there. Very often, in order not to experience any feeling, the psyche masks it under such an “unclear” shell of anxiety.

    2. The sensation is diffuse and not directed. Feeling-absolutely always directed at someone specifically, i.e. it has an addressee!
    Example: anxiety may internally resemble a lump that seems to spread all over the body. Anxiety is therefore difficult to deal with, because it is not clear where to put it, who to redirect it to. But with a feeling it is easier – I realized who the feeling is directed at and expressed it! (Of course, I'm always in favor of eco-friendly ways to respond!) For example, sometimes, so as not to spoil the relationship with the person you are angry with (but you may not realize it) you answer: “I'm just angry. I don't know what for. That's all I'm angry about.” No! That is why this anger does not go anywhere, because you do not direct it.

    3. The sensation is longer in time than the feeling. But as long as you are not aware of the feeling from the sensation!

    Example: with internal anxiety, a person can pass for years and it will not go anywhere. This can be seen, for example, in people with panic attacks. Well, or depression.

    As soon as you realize what kind of feeling is hidden in anxiety and express it, everything immediately passes.

    The feeling is less prolonged in time (From a minute to several days at most).

    4. The sensation is less intense in intensity than the feeling. It plays like a background. The feeling, on the contrary, is expressed and is a figure.

    Example: that's when you're angry or happy, everyone can see that you're angry or happy? In the first case, you can see, because you could have already hit the head, in the second-you jump and clap your hands. When you feel it, the most that can be asked of you is: “You look strange. Are you all right?” And they start to wonder what's wrong with you. “You look kind of guilty.” “You look scared. Is that so?”

    5. To make the feeling pass more quickly, you can place it somewhere. You need to stay with the feeling to understand what it's all about.

    This follows from the above points.

    6. A gastronomic example about sensation and feeling to make it clearer about differentiation.

    You're eating something very salty. Or sharp. Or bitter. Or sour. That's when you chewed everything, then on the tongue and in the mouth there is a feeling of some pain from such taste sensations. If you look closely, you will notice that no matter what you eat, this pain will be the same. But you realize that it's the pain of the spicy one, because you just ate a jalapeno, not a lemon. Here awareness and focusing your gaze on the hot pepper gives you an understanding that this is not just pain, but from the sharpness, and not from the lemon acid.

    I hope it became a little clearer!�

    p. s. If you want to learn a little more about it, how it all forms, I recommend reading gestalt therapy, and specifically-the cycle of contact, the formation of needs and the interruption of contact. There is a beautiful graph that shows the stages, when and what is formed!
