In the hidden faculties there is no particular order. They are all representative of the source. This is unlike the way the revealed faculties work.
For the revealed faculties the element of mind/mochin is revealed first. This refers to the emanation of the element of wisdom and understanding (chochmah and binah).
And from these come the midot/emotions.

This is due to the fact that the emotive sphirot are drawn from and receive impetus from the higher sphirot.
