Wow, I'd love to have access to the knobs that control this dummy. The interface would probably be some sort of web or hierarchy of rich phrases that describe the multiplicity of complex emotions. A few interesting ones:
"Happy but exhausted and a little bit anxious"
"Happy but unsure of impending danger"
"Happy but wishing one were elsewhere"
"Happy but angry at the happiness giver"
"Happy but full of relief from previous anger"
