In today's fast-paced society, individuals often grapple with immense work stress and a high-pressure lifestyle, making it harder to alleviate anxiety. This not only affects work efficiency and life quality but also may delay seeking timely medical assistance. Many struggle to understand and analyze their emotions, finding traditional emotional scales complex and confusing. Consequently, most people tend to ignore their emotional issues, with only a few seeking psychological or medical help. This study introduces an innovative method using an Arduino connected to a Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) sensor. This device analyzes participants' resistance fluctuations, indicative of emotional intensity. High skin resistance signals significant emotional changes. These are then visually interpreted and represented in a virtual interactive space using TouchDesigner, transforming emotions into visual elements like colors, shapes, and waveforms for effective categorization. Additionally, the CIEL*a*b* color space can be matched to Russell’s circumplex model of affect. This approach enables participants to intuitively perceive and comprehend their emotional shifts, simplifying the complexity of conventional scales. It offers a rapid self-assessment tool, providing others insights into the participant's emotional state. The study has successfully developed a prototype for simple emotional fluctuation analysis, allowing real-time monitoring and regulation of emotions. This tool represents a significant advancement in emotional analysis and adjustment in our high-pressure society, facilitating better emotional understanding and management.
