The Catcher in the Rye is not about Holden so much as it is about society and its inability to deal with anybody who doesn’t follow the crowd and put up a certain front. In Holden’s case, society creates his problems by imposing rules on the life he cannot play
To add on, Holden is not one to follow society’s rules. Holden is not the person to be engaged in what society calls “normal” because he is not necessarily a “normal” kid. Meaning, society believes kids around his age are interested in football games(3), going on dates (26), or just going to school (35). Society believes teenagers should attend school, and in Holden’s case, High School.

Throughout the show, Homer has been characterised as an over-impulsive, excessive consumer lacking organisational skills or motivation in his personal or work life. His characteristics, as far as drinking and eating are concerned, are typical of someone who received little oral gratification during the oral stage of psychosexual development.

Homer’s father Abe, an ex-army sergeant, was constantly around however he was emotionally disconnected and did not provide Homer with the attention he never received from his mother.

Also, Willy’s inability to accept anything deviating from what he wanted to hear led to Biff not being able to talk to his father candidly. Willy never allowed Biff to expose the truth - he constantly reminded Biff how smart, successful, and liked he was, so much so that Biff never had the chance (or the confidence and heart) to tell him all of this was not true. He didn’t want to be the one responsible for disappointing his father, and therefore played along,
Group Dynamics and The Breakfast Club The breakfast club is a movie where five teenagers all get stuck in Saturday detention with each other. All of these teenagers are completely different but by the end of detention, all become friends in a way while in detention. This film is an example of group dynamics in society because it shows how different people from different social groups can all come together and make time pass faster in detention.

From Life to ‘Death Row Granny’ What comes to mind when thinking of grandmothers? Cookies, acts of spoiling, and love are just a few, but what does not come to mind may be something like arsenic killings. Yet, in Velma Barfield’s case, one might want to ponder this carefully.
