    How it works? Why are we calling methods on the string? Where are they generally defined?

    Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

    The primitive is wrapped in an object of the corresponding type and uses the methods of its prototype. In fact:

    An instance of the String object is created with a toUpperCase () method, the methods are defined inside String.prototype (try typing in the console). To add your own method, extend the prototype of the desired object:
    String.prototype.myLength = function( arg ) {
    // ваш код
    };
