    I generally disregard emoticons in communication. Words can usually convey ideas sufficiently without them. In fact, I rarely use them myself. I actually try to remember the emotion expressed by reading off the character names in sequence rather than trying to see a face each time (it's faster for me).

    But here are my guesses anyway:

    1. ^_^ (Caret, underscore, caret) - Pleased or amused.

    2. X_X (X, underscore, X) - Dead or fainted (from shock).

    3. -_- (Dash, underscore, dash) - Bored or tolerating.

    4. *_* (Asterisk, underscore, asterisk) - Mesmerized or reminiscing.

    5. *^* (Asterisk, caret, asterisk) - Arrogant or daydreaming.

    Interesting... For me, the face is a face. Taken as a whole rather than characters grouped into a sequence. Face => emotion. Only if people ask do I translate the face emotion into words. A much different approach than yours. I wonder how you came about with your method. Curious.

    Well, I think it's basically the same difference I detect much of the time between myself and other people. I tend to perceive things in a very linear/literal manner at the cost of perceiving context, while most people process information more holistically at the cost of precision.

    ^_^ is happy
    ^.^ is a cuter form of ^_^
    -.- is annoyed
    x_x is dead
    O_o is shocked/surprised
    fO.o is confused
    (p.-)o is tired
    ^_~ is winking
    ^_^; nervous

    They really are quite useful for when normal smilies aren't there, although I miss some like and and and a bunch of others. I've gotten spoiled by MBTIc smilies.
