  • Patent number: 10163362
    Abstract: A feeling of each of members forming a group or team and the mood of all the members felt by each member are objectified and recorded. An emotion/mood data input, display, and analysis device includes a controller, a display, an input unit, and a recording unit. The controller includes an input screen generation unit. The input screen generation unit generates a first input screen that allows each of multiple members forming a group to, as an inputter, input whether an emotion or feeling of the each member is cheerful or gloomy, a level of cheerfulness or gloominess, whether the emotion or feeling is strong or weak, and a level of strength or weakness in a bifurcated manner. The display displays the first input screen. The controller captures data through the first input screen displayed on the display and the input unit and records the data in the recording unit.
