My wife and I had a “date night” cinema viewing Saturday. We saw the Pixar Inside/Out at the dollar theater.
I thought the notion that the “joy”-self was identified as the primary ego/self driver for the pre-teen child an interesting notion that might be plausible for most healthy happy kids. Also plausible is that emotional maturation consists in part (mostly?) with bringing a more complex emotional group to drive “self” image.
I’m less certain that emotional selves get lost in the inner mind in times of emotional crises.
