  1. Disgust

    Disgust is a type of aversive reaction that involves withdrawing from a person or object with strong expressions of revulsion. It can also be defined as a revulsion response towards potential contamination. It is a universal, basic emotion that functions to help protect an organism from ingesting potentially harmful substances, thereby promoting disease avoidance. It is one of the basic emotions and is typically associated with things that are regarded as unclean, inedible, infectious, gory or otherwise offensive. In The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, Charles Darwin wrote that disgust refers to something revolting. Disgust is experienced primarily in relation to the sense of taste, and secondarily to anything which causes a similar feeling by sense of smell, touch, or vision. Musically sensitive people may even be disgusted by the cacophony of inharmonious sounds. Research continually has proven a relationship between disgust and anxiety disorders such as spider phobia, blood-injection-injury phobia, and contamination fear related obsessive-compulsive disorder. Disgust is one of the basic emotions of Robert Plutchik's theory of emotions and has been studied extensively by Paul Rozin. It invokes a characteristic facial expression, one of Paul Ekman's six universal facial expressions of emotion. Unlike the emotions of fear, anger, and sadness, disgust is associated with a decrease in heart rate.

Examples of disgust in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Love piercing eternity My true love for you pierces the universe and eternity. In all the great darkness of solitude, all of it is from the shadows of people, past, present and future, all of them are just shadows compared to you, you sanctify yourself of darkness, you are the flame of my sincere love and passion, and in all this darkness of egoism I see only you - it is infinitely beautiful, sensual and erotic magic of temptation. Too much juicy, too much sweet, sweeter than ever, too, unbearably beautiful and lovely as wondrous relaxing tantric sex music of temptation, dance of lust. Beauty is so picturesquely painted in the sultry hue of hot sexuality, it raises the temperature of my body, soul, consciousness and incredibly high limit, which creates a burn in my soul and heart, like sensual sex in a sauna. The goddess, who collected all horny and love likes of my heart, in the head only one emotion of admiration, delight. Your beauty is of the highest quality, the poetic aesthetics of erotic romance, highly detailed in small details, the delicate ideal divine appearance is the highest art. You are supernatural sexy, beyond beautiful. Your sexy dark skin has conquered my heart. Leather is like a black gem. You are great and beautiful. Juicy, black skin, you are so beautiful that you want to bow down. Your beautiful juicy dark skin, burning predator's passion that stole my heart, in me is the cult of your beauty and personality in general, I worship your beauty, I am the best a fan of your appearance and soul.

I fanatically adore your beauty, every second is filled with the powerful force of love and this only increases with time. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  2. Tom Kupfer:

    Disgust is an aversive emotion and can be a nasty thing to experience, if you have too much disgust and it's too strong and too regular, like people with trypophobia can have day after day, it's a pretty unpleasant experience.

  3. Sharelle Klaus:

    In one moment you go from being really excited to meet this guy, who’s like a hometown hero, to just disgust.

  4. Friedrich Nietzsche, Aphorisms in Beyond Good and Evil:

    Disgust with dirt can be so great that it prevents us from cleaning ourselves - from "justifying" ourselves.

  5. Donald Trump:

    That’s not quite right, but it sure seems undemocratic. And it reeks of the kinds of insider politics that has caused widespread disgust with both parties. I say both parties because, as Donald Trump noted, Bernie Sanders is also getting hosed on the Democratic side. I’ve been concerned in the last few days that the media’s coverage of the presidential race is getting down into the weeds. The issues have mostly been drowned out, and even the state-by-state contests have been overshadowed by endless chatter about delegate math and party procedures. This is the stuff that media and political junkies crave but that civilians start to find incomprehensible. But people get it in their gut when someone is getting screwed. The latest headlines on the 2016 elections from the biggest name in politics. See Latest Coverage Primaries are the fairest way of picking a nominee. Caucuses are more time-consuming and complicated( although at least folks get to vote). And then there are states like Colorado. In March, Colorado held caucuses to pick delegates to a bunch of assemblies and conventions. And those people picked their favorite candidate. Ted Cruz won them all because Ted Cruz people outhustled an error-riddled effort by the Trump camp, and perhaps because the kind of party insiders elected to these gatherings don’t like Donald Trump. ( Yes, Ted Cruz is a hardly an establishment figure, but Ted Cruz’s become the most viable alternative for the GOP’s stop-Trump crowd.) The people out there are going crazy.
