A Beautiful Mind

And now, for the lighter side of psychotherapy... here's a thought I recently had: there seems to be an awful lot of mental illness in "Beauty and the Beast" (over and above, of course, the whole Maison des Lunes number):
  • Belle: Stockholm syndrome
  • Beast: Intermittent explosive disorder, possibly Asperger's disorder
  • Belle's father: dementia
  • Cogsworth: obsessive compulsive personality disorder
  • Lumiere: possible sexual addiction
  • Gaston: narcissistic personality disorder
  • LeFou: dependent personality disorder
Did I miss any?
