Isolation is the process of becoming alone or apart from others (Oxford Dictionaries). It is a scary feeling which can lead to many issues in one’s life, but when people isolates themselves, it can be even more harmful. Having someone to talk to about one’s desires or issues is a very important aspect in developing normally, and avoiding the feeling of isolation. Often times, someone may not have another person to talk to and they tend to keep everything in, to themselves. There is only so much a person can take so when something is kept in too long, it will burst out sooner or later; the results often harming themselves or people around them.
the author suggests that over time, being isolated can negatively affect one’s feelings by making individuals have bitter thoughts because they long for a companionship that they never had. Many isolated individuals can become jealous of people who have a strong relationship, because they don't have a companion. For example Carlson is very jealous of Candy’s relationship with his dog. He wants to break
Shadow theory is the understanding and analyzation of characteristics that the subject is unaware of: weaknesses, repressed ideas, desires, instincts, and shortcomings. The side of a any given personality which is not consciously displayed in public may have positive or negative qualities, and this is the Shadow self. When the Shadow remains unconscious, it causes problems for the person that holds that Shadow and the people that interact with them. Baker believes, “The Shadow self also embodies many darker aspects of the main character’s personality as well as deeply repressed impulses that aren’t always conspicuous to the reader” (1). When reading Hamlet, readers may not pick up on Hamlet’s Shadow.
Mindfulness theory suggests that MBCT acts on depression by reducing ruminative thinking. Although the MBT helps with mood disorders there is little known about efficacy which is the ability to produce a desired or intended outcomes. There has been an increase in evidence for the efficacy of mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) given different group of people. The current study evaluates a community based MBCT intervention for the group of adults who are seen as the group that is likely to have a mild to moderate depressive symptoms. The participants with mild to moderate depressive symptoms were separated from the general or normal population and they were treated to the MBCT intervention.
She had to go through events that not many people would ever imagine going through. She had no preparation for it so how could she be pressured into acting the “right” way. When people go through a tragic event it is not uncommon for them to hold it in so others can’t see. Beth looked like the “bad guy” only because she was paired up next to Calvin who went the opposite way of acting. When Calvin starts acting clingy to Conrad it makes Beth’s ignorance to the situation seem like the worst possible thing.
The existence of the subconscious mind is widely believed to have been first discovered by Sigmund Freud (1900) . He stated that the subconscious mind is like a big storehouse for repressed desires that is exclusive to each individual and they’re shaped by your life experiences, your memories and beliefs that can’t be deliberately brought to surface. For example, our basic instinct like urges for aggression and sex are contained in the subconscious mind and do not reach our consciousness because we see them as unacceptable to our rational and conscious selves. They are a part of your mind that you can’t access by your own will, a portion of minds that sleeps within you but in some ways affect your thought processes, behaviours and actions in
The trait of extraversion–introversion is a central dimension of human personality theories. The terms introversion and extraversion were first popularized by Carl Jung, although both the popular understanding and psychological age differ from his original intent. Extraversion tends to be manifested in outgoing, talkative, energetic behavior, whereas introversion is manifested in more reserved and solitary behavior. Extraversion and introversion are typically viewed as a single continuum. Thus, to be high on one it is necessary to be low on the other.
Lennie is a big character involving this stories theme by still having friends even though is very different from George and all the other workers. Some readers might think that Lennie has a brain injury that causes his forgetfulness and is a mean person who wants to cause havoc.

Lennie is a dynamic character with observations being made about his forgetfulness and kindness.
Carl Jung thought that some parts in unconscious are much bigger then sexual or aggressive emotions. In his writings about the person he explains that individuals are motivated by some unexplainable forces and forms that comes from the DNA. He believes that genetic code has a soul material that explains people’s aspiration to creative progressiveness and physical perfection. Jung’s theory about a psychological behavior helps us to understand the nature of people’s emotions, their relationship with he nature etc. it means the social behavior.
You stare into an empty abyss and feel like jumping because everything is pushing you closer to it and you feel so much pressure to make everyone happy and not screw up. That’s what it feels like when you have anxiety and most people don’t even know. Many people are unaware of what mental disorders are like because they never experience them. For those who do however it can feel like nobody cares. We rarely talk about mental health and it is always the last thing people consider.
For others he appears senseless and absurd, or even obsessive. It is not unusual for audience members to have different perspectives about him among themselves. However, most of the time the audience doesn’t notice the abundance of psychological themes that revolve around Orgon in the play. One of the more common initial views of Orgon is that he is idiotic. But why would Moliere make a character that is ridiculously oblivious to what’s going on under his nose?
