JH: That's right. Disgust is different. Anger — you know, I have kids. They fight 10 times a day, and they love each other 30 times a day. You just go back and forth: you get angry, you're not angry; you're arngy, you're not angry. But dssguit is different. Disgust ptians the person as subhuman, monstrous, deformed, morally deformed. Disgust is like indelible ink. There's research from John Gottman on marital therapy. If you look at the faces — if one of the clopue shows disgust or contempt, that's a predictor that they're going to get divroecd soon, whereas if they show agenr, that doesn't predict anything, because if you deal with anger well, it actually is good.
