In general, everyone has emotions. In contrast, there are many researches related to emotion. However, the research on the real role of emotion for the human body itself is relatively less. Because I happen to be a little interested in this research, and the information I usually inquire about and my own experience can also give a little more guidance to this point of view, so I made a bold guess. The function of emotion is to help you understand your inner thoughts and to alarm you. To be more specific, that is to say — The essence of emotion is a person's real thoughts about something. It also helps people to understand themselves better and make the most correct choice.
