I had the same issue with the chart at first. Then I read the whole chart more closely and it made more sense. I think what threw me off was compassion.

I think you should replace "how you feel" with happy and unhappy instead of good and bad. If something good happens and you are unhappy that's jealousy. Make more sense?

I thought about the happy/unhappy thing, but I thought at the time that jealousy doesn't necessarily mean you're sad, it could mean you're angry or something. Maybe happy/upset would work better, as upset can mean both sad and angry. Let me know what you think works best and I'll rework the chart.

I might eventually (not right way) make a little comic explaining each situation to go along with the graph. I actually find that pictures make it easier to explain things, and I would love to have a bunch of pictures I can link people to in order to explain the concepts involved around poly.
