    You’ve missed a pretty major one, although I’m not sure if it quite fits in your category – I’m sure it could be adapted ;) The ELTpics emotions set is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eltpics/sets/72157625912009785/
    Ceri Jones also has a great lesson for personality adjectives: http://cerij.wordpress.com/2011/11/23/back-to-the-drawing-board/ My students really enjoyed this one.
    Thanks for the list,
    Sandy
