Emotion is buried deep down inside a person, and it needs an inciting factor, which is invariably external. Once it is triggered, it bursts out like a volcanic eruption and the person is caught up in the same and everything else seems blacked out to him. However, it is a transient phenomenon - and the feeling fades away even before the person realizes the same. But, the corresponding mood is sustained for a relatively longer duration. Threshold for emotional expression/reaction varies from person to person and also the way one reacts to a given stimulus also differs, which may in turn depend on a number of factors - past experiences being one of them.
