(Meta-)Emotional window - a motivational equivalent of Johari window
Below are shown basic emotions horizontally, cross-tabbed vertically by meta-emotions as sources of many emotional dysfunctions, but also a locus of emotional awareness, emotional intelligence, and creative transformation in the first column of the table.
Why parental emotions about child's spontaneous emotions get internalized as meta-emotions, at all?
It seems there is a sub-level at the emotional level that allows for their internalization. Why has this emotional sub-level evolved in the course of human evolution is interesting question. Probably members of species that evolved it had better survival rates.
