In order to comprehend the thesis, it is essential that one understand the psychological makeup of the Misfit. The Misfit accepts that he is not “a good man”, but he isn’t “the worst in the world neither” (O’Connor, 619). The Misfit has made his fair share of mistakes but more importantly, is conscious of his shortcomings and his strengths.

Paul D’Angelo is not the only person that has experienced an awkward situation like this. In Patrick Dewitt’s The Sisters Brothers Eli, one of the brothers sees a weeping man and like D’Angelo he does not take any action. This later leads him to question
He attempts to make peace, his actions are no different than those of others, and he is experiencing resentment. Although there is no excuse for murdering others, Grendel does not kill for the fun of it. His actions are just reactions to emotions he is experiencing. Furthermore, his willingness to make peace emphasizes the remorse he feels for the crimes he has committed. This also shows that he acted impulsively because of his strong feelings of resentment.
Individuals largely create their own illusions, to drown out some emotional unfulfillment in life. Yet, some individuals believe that their illusions are a reality.

Although one’s choices can be either detrimental or benign to their lives, they have no correlation with their true disposition. Often one makes an ill advised decision to protect the ones that they love. In “Mama and Her Bank Account” it proclaims, “ ‘In all my life, I never been inside a Bank.’ And when I didn’t--couldn’t--answer; Mama earnestly said:’Is no good for little ones to be afraid--to not feel secure’”. One will often make a decision that others see as ill-mannered, in order to protect their loved one’s sense of security. Although the narrator of “No Ordinary Joe” has views that one can make ill advised decisions that can be detrimental to one’s character.
Should McMurphy be considered insane? McMurphy was aggressive, disobedient, loud, obnoxious, and manipulative. He also engaged in brawling, gambling, and chicanery.

Critics of the insanity plea often contend that a crime is still a crime, and it does not matter who committed it, sane or insane. Opponents of this defense also question, “They are criminals, so who cares if they are sent away?” In truth, it is still a crime, however, this crime cannot be considered guilty, if the defendant had no criminal intent to do so.

An example of Capote’s bias is when he wrote that “Dewey, a believer in capital punishment, its purported deterrent effects, and its justice, witnessed the hangings” but he could not watch Perry’s hanging. Dewey closed his eyes; “ he kept them shut until he heard the thud-snap that announces a rope-broken neck” (McClain). In addition to this, Capote mentions that Dewey could find it “ possible to look at [Perry] beside him without anger,with, rather, a measure of sympathy” (Capote 246). Dewey didn’t feel that way towards Dick even though he didn 't commit the murders. Capote’s bias makes the audience feel more sympathetic towards Perry and more hatred towards Dick, even though Perry is the killer.

Stereotypes are harmful things that hurt people. It takes away a person’s individuality and leave them only with a label that is, more often than not, affiliated with negative traits. The person feels worse about themselves and may lose motivation. They may also leave a bad impression on people despite doing nothing to support that assumption. In that case, there is nothing the person can do about it.
