Hierarchy of awe

Hierarchy of awe

There are various levels of awe due to psychological differences in persons. In those who have not produced an opinion of themselves, for instance a child, awe would be experienced regularly. Similarly, those who seem themselves as inferior or suffer from Inferiority complex would experience a great deal of awe on a regular basis. This will be simply known to as Level 1 Awe.

In people who have made a basic opinion of themselves and have experienced some basic components of life, awe would be experienced at times when he/she is revealed to something that is not inside their source of reference. This would mean that the person would know the emotion but not be too involved within it. This will be called Level 2 Awe.

Level 3 Awe would be shown in people who have a basic self-opinion and have experienced a great magnitude of uncommon events. His/her point of reference would be much broader and more complex than those who would experience Level 1 and 2 Awe. For instance, those who suffer from chronic hallucinations would not be very much surprised to see an out of the ordinary person walking down the street. People who are delusional or have gone through an apparitional experience would fall under this category only if they suffer from these visual affairs constantly.

What would be known as Level 4 Awe is highly in common in those who have either a very large opinion of themselves or have a very broad collection of life experience. People who feel themselves as superior to others would very rarely be in awe in affairs that those below them find inspiring. Humans who have had a very broad life experience would find mediocrity in many things most people have never experienced.

The very final level, what would be called Level 5 Awe, resounds in those who are indifferent. It is a hypothetical level in which persons who are either completely apathetic or utterly oblivious to everything around them finds no emotion of awe in absolutely anything around them.
