Why do people have feelings?

Asker: Lottie, 11 years old

Answer

Emotions serve as a state of arousal. This state is the signal for an important event, for example a threat or the presence of a suitable partner. Emotional expression is also conducive to social interaction. For example, positive emotions direct our attention to what we should keep close to us, such as a good friend.
