Sadness affects everyone at some point, and is discernible at both the behavioral and physiological levels. Behaviors such as crying, sobbing, and temporary social isolation are characteristic of sadness. Feeling sad can also trigger specific observable reactions in the brain and peripheral nervous system.
Though sadness is often linked with unfavorable circumstances, it is not always perceived in a negative light. Many people enjoy watching sad movies or listening to sad music because crying can be emotionally soothing. And while sadness can lead to withdrawal from other people or a loss of interest in certain activities, it can also prompt pleasure-seeking behaviors. In fact, positive personality traits such as alertness, thoughtfulness, and resilience can be fostered through sad experiences.
