I believe that Christopher sees himself as normal but at the same times he knows he isn’t like everyone else. He deals with the fact that he is different from others by keeping to himself and not talking to strangers. He also doesn’t really get how they are and he knows they act different from him. “I do not like strangers because I do not like people I have never met before. They are hard to understand (pg.31)”.
There are many differences between psychopaths and sociopaths that a lot of people haven 't heard of. Such as the fact that psychopaths do not have a conscience whereas sociopaths do. Sociopaths are more hot headed and temperamental. And psychopaths are cold hearted and have no remorse. Meaning that sociopaths are very impulsive and psychopaths calculate things out; making the perfect plot.
His self esteem is not the highest. He is aware of how the others response to his un-Alpha-like shortness, and his lack of confidence gives him anxiety because of the rejection. Bernard is someone who isn’t very sociable and he is an outsider who is very emotional and insecure. He later shocks
Nearly every individual has been wronged or hurt by the words of a friend or family member. The person who spits venom in a fit of rage may apologize, however sorry cannot fix everything. The words that humans speak are set in stone and it is a natural flaw of humanity that nearly everyone speaks without thinking how it can affect others. For example, jokingly bullying someone is still a poor choice as the victim stills feels bad about the joke. Those jokes are pointless, yet the person at the end of the joke has to question if it truly was a joke, or if there is actually something wrong with them.
He feels terrible for the pain he has caused them. It is one thing to have his own case to worry about, but it is another to be weighed down with the guilt of being, however unintentionally, the source of these poor fools' misery. The Underground Man would likely respond differently. His recurring desire for power over other people needs to be understood. He does not care for money as a source of wealth as is common, but instead, he views it as a method of controlling other people.
He was trying to forget his sins but the weight of them was unbearable, he was living an unhappy life. The book makes reference to his immoral acts but they are the ones that lead to unhappiness. What the author is doing is not idolize the life of sin but criticising it because the ending is tragic and it is not a life that a normal person would want. People tend to look for happiness and the book shows that a life of sin does not make an individual happy, it actually makes people feel regret and a weight on their
This temptation is often ignored or denied in an attempt to not fall into it. Goodman Brown’s “prolonged resistance is a denial of the wishes that are the source of his projections” (Levy 4). After seeing all the people falling into sin before him, Brown finds difficulty not to. Humanity struggles with this everyday. Humans will have a person or people highly regarded, but when the person or those people fail, they will lose the faith in humanity and give up by falling into the temptation.
He cannot seem to understand these “children blessed with too much self esteem” (45). The normality of the ignorant behavior that has been perceived by Billy is accurately described. For many, it takes partaking in a similar situation in order to practice empathizing rather than pity. But “no amount of lecturing will enlighten them as to the state of pure sin toward which war inclines”
Alfred Prufrock is not a very interesting man, and odds are neither is his dating profile. Alfred is a man that just sort of drifts aimlessly from one common task to the next. However, he seems to think that the things he does is important and that he has a life changing question, although we never learn what it is. I get the impression that Prufrock is somewhat of an arrogant person because he always thinks that what he is doing is very important. He sees girls, and knows where they are, but he does not take the time to talk to them because he thinks that whatever he is doing is too important, and time just goes by.
When his nemesis comes to the call, Pairs initially loses bravery, and by the end of the battle, he disappears completely. These actions reflect man’s inner struggle. On occasion man might commit a kind deed, but this does not reflect his true nature. Everyone has times when they rise above evil, however, several blameless actions hardly compare to the many amoral actions. In the end, man’s nature remains nefarious regardless of the few commendable things he does.
Even though he is skeptical of people he considers phony, such as Marty who lies about seeing a movie star, his negativity and judgement of others usually goes a lot farther than what is considered normal. For example, he doesn’t get serious in relationships with others, because he always seems to find flaws in everyone. Another example is when Holden’s history teacher at Pencey, Mr. Spencer, wants to understand why he refuses to put in any effort. Spencer feels bad about failing Holden and reaches out to him, trying to connect with him and possibly influence him positively. However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked.
This creates a whirlwind of problems for Holden, convincing the reader that “Holden is clearly flawed . . . (Bickmore and Youngblood 254)” His failure to reflect upon his poor choices, such as his failure to study and lack of motivation, can be seen as the birthplace from which many of his problems spring, leading to his pessimistic
Antwone suffers from displacement and repression, and he also deny a lot about his pass experiences. With that being said, my treatment recommendation for Antwone is the psychoanalytic theory. Antwone denies and bottles up all the anger that he has from his pass without realizing that it is causing him more harm. He refused to talk about these issues because he thought that he does not have an issues. With all the anger bottled up, he tends to displace them by lashing out on his co-workers.
The deep mistrust that Crooks feels towards others, though, is one of the reasons he does not have a friend to talk to. Lennie creates excitement in Crooks because Crooks can trust Lennie since he knows that Lennie will never repeat what he says . However, this feeling is short lived. Soon after his discussion with Lennie, Crooks realizes that he is still alone and that Lennie will not always be with him. As it is with Crooks, physical characteristics can play a part in the isolation of people, even if those people have a fixed place to
