Certain circumstances can evoke a wide range of emotions, both negative and positive, affecting dwarves' stress levels. Emotional reactions can result from immediate experience, or from revisiting a long-term memory, and are affected by dwarves' personalities and values, resulting in different reactions to the same circumstances. Recent emotions experienced by dwarves(listed along with their circumstance pairs) are listed in the Thoughts and Preferences screen.

Different thoughts can have different "strength", denoting the effect the emotion has on a dwarf's stress levels (negative numbers reduce stress, while positive numbers increase it) and depends on time elapsed and dwarven personality. This thought strength is then divided by the 'Divider' numbers given in the table. The thought strength is loosely color-coded, with positive thoughts being in blue or green and strong negative thoughts being in red or yellow. Brown thoughts are mildly to moderately negative, and purple and grey ones are pretty much neutral.

Note that positive thoughts have a negative number, as they reduce stress. Numbers closer to 1 or -1 have the strongest effect on stress.

Many examples of a dwarf feeling emotions are as follows:

Syndromes can cause a creature to feel particular emotions using the CE_FEEL_EMOTION tag. When a creature's stress level is high enough, certain negative emotions may create additional effects. These emotions will display a string in the dwarf's General status screen.

A total of 180 emotions are defined within the code, but only 130 of them are currently implemented:
