Stefan Waterland tweeted a chart titled the Feelings Schema from Oatley and Jenkins.

The y-axis is intensity.
The x-axis is time (seconds, minutes, hours, … years, lifetime).

Emotions span seconds, minutes
Mood span minutes, hours
Mood disorders span days, weeks, months
Personality spans months, years
Culture spans years, lifetime

Waterland credits the source:  The Branded Mind by Erik Du Plessis.
