This paper describes estimation methods of pleasant feeling and arousal feeling by thermogram. We constructed Pleasantness to Unpleasantness (P-U) estimation model by multi regressive via nasal temperature changes in the thermograms, and set the coefficients experimentally, and Arousal to Sleepiness (A-S) estimation model was also constructed by the similar method. And using the methods we attempt to analyze emotions of four types in watching video programs.
