Duplex Theory of Hate -Robert J. Sternberg

Different combinations of components of hate lead to different kinds of hate.  These are:

(1) Cool hate:  Disgust (disgust of negation of intimacy alone),

(2) Hot hate: Anger/Fear (anger/fear of passion alone),

(3) Cold hate: Devaluation/Diminution (devaluation/diminution of decision/commitment alone),

(4) Boiling hate: Revulsion (disgust of negation of intimacy + anger/fear of passion),

(5) Simmering hate:  Loathing (disgust of negation of intimacy + devaluation/diminution of decision/commitment),

(6) Seething hate: Revilement (anger/fear of passion + devaluation/diminution of decision/commitment), and

(7) Burning hate:  Need for annihilation (disgust of negation of intimacy + anger/fear of passion + devaluation/diminution of decision/commitment).
