Old Chinese Criteria

1. A general word for dissatisfaction of any kind, and for any reason, is hèn 恨 (ant. qiè 慊 / 愜 "be satisfied"), but this word is rare in ancient times, the current way of expressing this idea is to use bù yuè 不悅/說.

2. Yàn 厭 / 饜 typically refers to dissatisfaction as a result of overexposure to something.

3. Hàn 憾 refers to a nagging kind of lingering grievance or personal dissatisfaction.

4. Bìng 病 refers to dissatisfaction as a result of a considered judgment that something is unreasonable or not right.

NB: There are a number of poetic words for dissatisfaction, notably in CHUCI, which are hard to define in terms to synonym group contrasts.
