Their psychological disorders.


What were their psychological disorders and what were their symptoms?

reply

I'm pretty sure Henry is an OCD with a mild personality disorder (he fancies himself as a doctor). Billy has an obvious pathological disorder (lying) and anger management issues, possibly oppositional defiant disorder, an antisocial disorder, or even a bipolar disorder. Albert is a once catatonic introvert, probably now has an avoidant personality disorder. Jack is a schizophrenic, who has a delusional disorder (he thinks he's Jesus). More or less they're not all cut and dried, but definitely a smattering of disorders that were complimentary and bred conflict.

Christopher Lloyd's character is described as having "Paranoid schizophrenia" but his symptoms do not at all coincide. I used to believe that he had OCD until I just watched it five minutes ago. His behavior really is more indicative of OCD. Paranoid schizophrenics are not usually as functional as Henry.

Yeah, he doesn't hear voices or have any of the classes symptoms of schizophrenia. Definitely OCD with some kind of personality disorder, perhaps narcissistic personality disorder because he thinks he's a doctor.
