comment If people did not have to work, what would motivate them to work?
I think in one of "American Pie" movies or similar comedies one of "burnout" characters who got condemned by his father to clean toilets says that it's actually not so bad if you are "stoned enough". I guess changing the brain chemistry may be a way to motivate people to do menial tasks in an unconditional income society. Another movie, "Interstate 60" depicts a society where availability of another super drug controls the population and ensures that essential tasks, like cleaning get done

comment What is the most comprehensive system of describing human emotions or states of mind?
This is a very insightful answer. I've struggled with the idea of discrete vs dimensional aspects of a state of mind for some time, and you nicely explained that.

comment What is the most comprehensive system of describing human emotions or states of mind?
A discrete system with applicability to general public would be the criteria I'm looking for. Given 100 people, such model would most closely and accurately define what these people are experiencing at the moment. Opposite to this are some psychiatric models, like the DSM that would not be applicable to general public, only people who cross a certain threshold.

comment What traits does a man have, when he is apt to feeling threatened by strong women?
I think it's really important to know if the type of woman you are defining is also physically attractive. If she is, then such woman can be perceived as being "way out of one's league", thus eliciting a response similar to crossing a narrow bridge very high up - there's too much attention being paid to "not screwing it up", which disrupts normal thinking patterns
