After analyzing his behavior, the best way to explain it would be through the psychodynamic perspective.

His father made it very known that he didn’t want to be apart of his son's life when he would require John to make appointments to see him. It is said that John never really had a childhood.

John Nash was extremely intelligent man but let his work take over a lot of his life. I would describe his attitude as cocky as he believed he was much smarter than others and loved to prove it which is shown in the beginning with the board game between him and Hanson. I figured that he was one that knew he was there for the education and not to party like his fellow classmates were doing. He would stay in his room studying and figuring out the hardest math problems and working them on the windows. Figuring out math problems was what made his day.The clues that were the most alarming were when Nash and Charles are sitting on the roof they are chatting on a university building roof and getting to know each other better. Nash and Charles are

Have you ever wondered why people do the things they do? Everyone behaves differently in their own little ways, but sometimes these things cannot be understood. Through psychology, people are able to interpret behavior and apply the data to diagnose mental illnesses. As Ronald Reagan once said, “We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone”. The role of being a psychologist means helping others by studying behavioral, cognitive, and social processes. This information is interpreted and then used to benefit others emotionally and mentally, and allows people to better understand how the mind works. Becoming a psychologist is rewarding when you consider the responsibilities, salary, and requirements associated with the profession.

I think it’s filmed well not too many transitions in the film or weird shots from below. Sound effects are normal nothing spectacular or anything that truly stands out. There is little to no music in this movie at all and when there is it’s the same sound and musical noise over and over again which I can stand to you is easily my least favorite part of this film. All the sounds and cinematography put together in this film make for a truly stunning movie that really brings out the feel and time of the movie itself.
Norman Bates is an 18-year-old Caucasian male. Norman was one of two children born into a lower middle class family with an abusive father and controlling mother. Norman’s father passed away due to an accident in their home when Norman was a young boy (around the age of four). His mother is obviously the most prominent figure and influence in his life. After his father’s passing, Norman and his mother move to White Pine Bay. Norma, Norman’s mother, begins a new life for them there. She buys an old motel that she plans to run. Norma and Norman are remarkably secluded from nearly everyone; this is the way that Norma prefers it. Norman attends White Pine Bay High School where he does fairly well academically, but has behavior problems. Norman is the center of many criminal cases in White Pine Bay (mostly murders). Norma controls nearly every aspect of Norman’s life. This causes several interpersonal relationship problems with outsiders. Norman begins to have friends, and even a girlfriend, but his mother continuously puts the relationships under a microscope. He seems to generally take on the same opinion about a person as his mother does. Dylan, Norman’s older brother, reenters their life soon after they move to White Pine Bay. Dylan is the product of Norma’s brother raping her when they were young teens. The arrival of Dylan causes tension between Norman and Norma as several aspects of their old life are brought back up questioned. This cause more and more anger and trust
The movie Psycho was directed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1960. When Psycho was first released they implemented a rule that no one could come into the movie late, and I guess that was a thing that happened a lot back then. People were just like “I got a few minutes, let me go into this movie, I don’t care if it started.” But they were having none of that with Psycho. Once the movie started the doors were closed, no one was allowed in. In the previews they asked the audience to not divulge any of the secrets of the movie to their friends or family after they see it. And audiences obeyed, they didn’t go out and blabber about it like people do these days. You could not get away with that today, but audiences were cool back then. Because they didn’t let the audience in after the movie started, they didn’t allow critics to watch the movie ahead of time either. The critics had to go with the audiences on opening day to see the movie. They were not happy about that because they were being treated like peasants, like any other viewer. I guess they thought they were better than everybody else, as some critics actually gave them bad reviews basically because they didn’t get a special screening. Even before audiences watched the movie, their psychological needs start to be met as hype and suspense is built with the secrets people need to keep. The suspense is kept up throughout the movie from Marion’s get away and death, to the twist at the end.
Every person has a personality, but with a personality people also possess personality disorders. According to Rathus (2010) “personality disorders are patterns of inflexible traits that disrupts social life or work and may distress the affected individual” (p. 525). Little do most know that they themselves and the people around them daily have one or more disorders. A few personality disorders are obsessive-compulsive, obsession with perfection, and narcissistic, need for admiration. The film Mommie Dearest, directed by, Frank Perry, shows how personality disorders, like obsessive-compulsion and narcissism, effects children in their childhood and as they grow older.
