Staples shares his account of a number of personal encounters, arguing that in each situation, he was misinterpreted as being dangerous because of his daunting physical appearance.

In the wake of Marion Crane’s death, several instances of the defense mechanism, denial, can be observed. Norman Bates utilizes this defense mechanism in order to acquit himself from any potential allegations made towards him while simultaneously living an unorthodox life, characterized by a feeling of normalcy. In simple terms, denial is refusing to accept that something has happened; if something goes wrong, one may utilize this defense mechanism to relieve the anxiety and/or stress that are subsequent products of adversity.
