Listening experiences play a very important role in emotional release. Emotional experience creators offering listening experiences, choose to focus on the emotional release of suppressed emotions by experience recipients

Someone listening to you

Offering to listen to someone, means giving them your focus, time and attention. We gladly do it for friends and loved ones yet listening to a stranger is often a very different experience. People meet people on the train and planes, and choose random people as confidants, to share what's bothering them. Its good as its free, presumed to be anonymous and gives a relief, yet there are few problems too. Not only travel got expensive, but there is no reassurance, that your chosen confidant will be willing to undertake the task and help you get a relief. They may, instead, bombard you with their problems, in return. Sometimes a person would want to anonymously share their dirty secrets, their hatred and anger. 

 Types of listening emotional experiences

Yet, talking to a stranger definitely works, as the relief from sharing is there, yet this is not complicating existing relationships. Here at emotions market we separate companionship experiences into different categories:

  • Hugs and cuddle - experiences where personal physical contact is the focus 
  • In person - experiences where being there in person for both buyer and creator are the focus
  • Virtual companionship - experiences of companionship, where all interaction happens virtually
  • Listening - experiences where the focus of the buyer is on talking, and creator is listening
  • Talking and listening - experiences where buyer and creator are having a conversation, maybe creator is giving an advice


Here at we refer to 32 emotions by Plutchik's Wheel - learn more in our Creator zone. When crafting the emotional release and emotional enrichment experiences, the first step is decide, which emotions of the recipient are to be addressed. When a person wants someone to listen to them, it's, most of the time, negative emotions, that a person is wishing to release with words. For example:  

Amazement - feeling of shocked or being astonished by something

Terror - an overwhelming feeling of fear and anxiety

Vigilance - the feeling of sustained attention

Contempt - the feeling when you look down on someone and don’t want to have anything to do with it

Anticipation - looking forward to a future event or state, sometimes with an affective component

Anger - displeasure, hostility or antagonism towards someone or something.

Aggressiveness - mixed emotion between anger and anticipation, which can turn into aggressive behaviour 

Disgust - feeling of aversion towards something offensive

Loathing - intense feeling of disgust 

Grief - the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away

Annoyance - the feeling that you get when someone makes you feel angry or impatient

Rage - an intense, uncontrolled anger that is an increased stage of hostile response to a perceived egregious injury or injustice

Sadness - an emotional pain associated with, or characterised by, feelings of disadvantage, loss, despair, helplessness, disappointment, and sorrow

Disappointment - feeling unhappy because someone or something was not as good as your expectations
