    Interesting.

    REF:
    "Our research suggests that sadness ... promotes information processing strategies best suited to dealing with more demanding situations."

    I wonder how sadness compares to anger/resentment as a catalyst for increased information processing?

    Who would pay more attention to a situation, a sad person, or a person desiring justice/revenge?

    This reminds me of a video recommended to me:

    Angry people definitely have a certain intensity absent in happy people.

    Would it be fair to say anger is "active sadness" and sadness is "passive anger?"

    The two are not mutually exclusive, I think. Both are negative. A main difference between them is that a sad person lacks drive, while an angry person lacks reflection, but both are upset. Right?

    I think that is very perceptive actually. I think you could conceptualize anger as "active" sadness. Sadness externalized. Normal sadness could be the same feeling internalized. It is often said that women are conditioned to internalize their negative feelings, hence sadness, whereas men are conditioned to externalize their negative feelings and subject them to other people.

    We all have a dual nature. One part receptive, one part active.

    You make a good point. Most of the time I can predict when I will be prone to being receptive/active. Sometimes I cannot. It really depends on the severity of a given event, and if it came as a surprise or not, and who it was delivered by that determine if I will be saddened or become wrathful.

    interesting...and my memory sucks. i will say i'm more prone to actively show anger than sadness but i think you're right that it most likely stems from sadness.
