"Crying helps me slow down and obsess over the weight of life's problems."
- Sadness

Disney and Pixar's animated film Inside Out (2015) "anthropomorphizes the five emotions (Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear) living inside the mind of a young girl named Riley, and uses them to perfectly illustrate a number of experiences of the human condition."

A great deal of research went into the production of Inside Out,, including observations and consultations with numerous psychologists. Why? Filmmaker Pete Doctor desired to accurately - and enigmatically - portray what goes on in the human mind.
