What color are your emotions?

I've heard that when doctors ask little children to describe 'hurt', they ask them to tell them what color the pain feels like.  So I think, all emotions have a color.  But what colour?  Can a color be for more than one emotion?  Sure.  Yellow can be fear (like 'yellow-bellied') or happiness (like sunshine).  Then I realised: emotions are about SHADES of colour!

Genius, I know, but it's harder than you think to nail down a satisfactory colour for each emotion.  And which emotions should I include in this?  This will be an ongoing thought process...
