One can think of a javascript objects as containers with collections of data in it. Each data has a property name or key, with an assigned value (key-value pairs).  These values can be of primitive types, functions, objects, etc. When the value of a pair is a function, we call this a method. Behind the scenes, when an object is created and properties and values/methods are added to it, the object stores references to these for later access. This means that objects can store references to other objects.
