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):

  1. Belle: Stockholm syndrome

  2. Beast: Intermittent explosive disorder, possibly Asperger’s disorder

  3. Belle’s father: dementia

  4. Cogsworth: obsessive compulsive personality disorder

  5. Lumiere: possible sexual addiction

  6. Gaston: narcissistic personality disorder

  7. LeFou: dependent personality disorder

Did I miss any?
