    Re: psychic, spiritual, emotional, mental

    Mental = relating to or occurring in the mind
    Emotional = relating to the emotions; showing emotion; easily affected by emotion
    Spiritual = relating to or affecting the human spirit[soul] or to religious belief
    Psychic = relating to phenomena that are apparently inexplicable by natural laws - typically telepathy or clairvoyance.


    Ju, you did look these up in your dictionary before asking, didn't you?

    Anglika,

    I did check with the dictionary but they put the same defination for all in Chinese. Can I try to make examples for those I understand as follow:

    • emotional - anger, frustration
    • spiritual - superstitious
    • mental - optimistic
    • psychic - ghost

    Am I right?

    Thanks.

    Anglika,

    • emotional - anger, frustration An emotional response can result in anger; it can also result in unhappiness or happiness. It is the reaction of the emotions to something. If you see a film that is sad and you cry, you are having an emotional response. If someone is rude to you and you feel angry, that too is an emotional response.
    • spiritual - superstitious No. As an example, the Dalai Lama is a spiritual leader - it implies an awareness of things that are beyond materialistic matters.
    • mental - optimistic No - this tell you that it is related to the way in which the mind operates, whether rationally or irrationally. You do mental arithmetic - add, subtract, multiply and divide in your mind without using pen and paper.
    • psychic - ghost To be psychic can mean that you are sensitive to things that no-one else can feel or identify. This could indeed mean ghosts - some people seem to see them quite freely. It can also mean that something is related to the psyche - that indefinable part of the human nature also called the soul.

    Am I right?

    Thanks.
