Holden Caulfield, from Catcher in the Rye can be kept under observation for psychological problems. From what’s been read in the book, Holden seems like a troubled boy. You can tell from the four different schools he’s been kicked out of and especially that he is unable to relate or connect with any others and voices strong harsh opinions about others. As the story goes on, many more reasons about his troubled-ness should unfold. His symptoms cannot be filed away in a readily disorder or given advice from Dr. Phil. It may be helpful for Holden to know of his conditions, and also advice from Dr. Phil which he might be able to use to help relive somewhat of his troubles. First of his we could address is where he judges everybody and everything. Holden judges them in many categories but frequently judging them into groups of either being phony, stupid, or insecure. He judges everyone so quickly. To him phony people are considered who are predictable not insincere. That is considered strange because most consider phonies as ones who are insincere. What could be advised from Dr. Phil’s articles is to see everything in a positive light. Maybe Holden judges everyone and everything constantly to cover his own fear of being judged by others and what he needs to do is have control over it. He probably knows his actions causes people to talk and that’s why he talks about others. In order to control this, he just control his actions and not do anything that others could talk about ceasing his quick judgments. Holden has a lack of close or any type of relationships at all. His constant, quick judgments of others may be a factor in his lack of relationship, but nonetheless it is a problem. Dr. Phil states that to have a solid relationship and a good friend; he must ask himself what type of friend is he, what type of friend should he be and become a good friend.…...

Beautiful Advice from Divorced Man

...Beautiful advice from a divorced man after 16 years of marriage gentledom: raisingkings: Obviously, I’m not a relationship expert. But there’s something about my divorce being finalized this week that gives me perspective of things I wish I would have done different… After losing a woman that I loved, and a marriage of almost 16 years, here’s the advice I wish I would have had 1. Never stop courting. Never stop dating. NEVER EVER take that woman for granted. When you asked her to marry you, you promised to be that man that would OWN HER HEART and to fiercely protect it. This is the most important and sacred treasure you will ever be entrusted with. SHE CHOSE YOU. Never forget that, and NEVER GET LAZY in your love. 2. Protect your own heart. Just as you committed to being the protector of her heart, you must guard your own with the same vigilance. Love yourself fully, love the world openly, but there is a special place in your heart where no one must enter except for your wife. Keep that space always ready to receive her and invite her in, and refuse to let anyone or anything else enter there. 3. Fall in love over and over again. You will constantly change. You’re not the same people you were when you got married, and in five years you will not be the same person you are today. Change will come, and in that you have to re-choose each other everyday. SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO STAY WITH YOU, and if you don’t take care of her heart, she may give that heart to someone else or seal...

Holden Caulfield

...Holden Caulfield can be analyzed through his thoughts, actions and circumstances which surround his everyday life. Holden acts like a careless teenager. Holden has been to several prep-schools, all of which he got kicked out of for failing classes. After being kicked out of the latest, Pency Prep, he went off to New York on his own. Holden seems to have a motivation problem which apparently affects his reasoning. The basis of his reasoning comes from his thoughts. Holden thinks the world is full of a bunch of phonies. All his toughs about people he meets are negative. The only good thoughts he has are about his sister Phoebe and his dead brother Alley. Holden, perhaps, wishes that everyone, including himself, should be like his brother and sister. That is to be intelligent, real and loving. Holden’s problem is with his heart. It was broken when his brother died. Now Holden goes around the world as his fake self, wearing his mask. Holden is looking for love, peace and understanding. He is scared to love because he is afraid he might lose it like he did with his brother. That is the reason for Holden's love of the museum, he feels safe because it never changes it always stays the same. Holden is troubled with the pain of death, it effects every aspect of his life causing him to not care about the future, himself or anyone, except Phoebe and Alley. The theme of alienation is demonstrated by Holden. He alienates himself from the world because he fears change and false......

Is Holden Depressed

...Is Holden Depressed? Reading the first page of catcher in the rye the very first time, i got a shocked because this isn't an ordinary book I instantly sensed the negativity of Holden, the main character and his tough personality and it intimidates me as a reader and as I continued to read the chapter what struct me was his negativity towards his brother who made it to Hollywood, if I was him I would be proud of my brother and probably brag of him to my friends because of course, he's my brother! But Holden called him a prostitute for making it to Hollywood just because he hates movies but as I further continued to read the book all the way to the eighth chapter I realized Holden may have a tough outer shell with all his cuss words and negativity towards others and basically life; I realized Holden has this inner goodness that people just don't see even though he despised his brother for being successful in Hollywood he still admired him as a writer and said he was one oh his top favorites. He also is kind of a "bad person" to his next door roommate Ackley by pointing out all his bad qualities like his pimples and how he was annoying as an introduction of his character in the novel but he showed his good side when he said he was comfortable with Ackley because he actually stayed in Ackleys room one night when he got punched by his room mate Stradler and asked if he could sleep on the vacant bed but he ended up not doing so because the owner might come back and get......

...Dear Holden, I see you are very lost in this world. Nobody understands you, you consider everyone is your enemy. You obviously think all adults are miserable because they have the most boring life anyone could ever imagine. They wake up every day, tell their kids what to do and what not to do, then they go to work, do nothing that can ever help someone on the planet(even if the name of their career sounds very serious and significant), after they come back home, argue with their children till it's late managing to watch some stupid tv show and then they go to sleep (after which they do same things). But that's one of the hardest things in your life -to find out some way how to enjoy your wonderful or pathetic life. That is the exact reason you have to study. Learning something new makes us less vulnerable as we can make our point of view more clear. You have a lot of feelings and emotions which are in the greatest need of being expressed in some way. Knowing how many important things you can tell the world of teenagers, I would really like to ask you to write things down. Everything that you believe makes sense and can help someone to define their stupid and useless existence. You may try to make some money on writing scripts which I know you don not like that much. But you should think about it in a different way. Being a scriptwriter makes you a substantial man in the area of social media. You will meet some extremely smart and talented people (which are smart......

...Tianna Dockett PHIL 101 Final Exam 1. Retributive justice is a legal principal that dictates that punishment for a crime is acceptable as long as it is a proportionate response to the crime committed. In this type of justice system, a crime is typically seen as being done against the state or government, rather than against an individual or community. The standard of fairness is likewise found in the thought of reasonable play. On the off chance that individuals accept that a reasonable procedure was utilized as a part of choosing what it to be dispersed, then they may well acknowledge an irregularity in what they get in correlation to others. 2.3. As a record of political association on the bigger scale, Plato's protection of a aristocratic government was unrealistic to win wide endorsement in fair Athens. He utilized the characters Glaucon and Adeimantus to voice pragmatic complaints against the arrangement. They are particularly concerned (as Plato's Athenian counterparts may well have been) with some of its procurements for the gatekeeper class, including the support of both men and ladies, the disposal of families, and the instruction of youngsters. Likewise, Plato accepted that the hobbies of the state are best saved if kids are raised and taught by the general public overall, instead of by their natural folks. So he proposed a basic (if startlingly new) plot for the reproducing, sustaining, and preparing of youngsters in the gatekeeper class.4. Using a...

...I feel that Peter was one of the few people who was not phony in this world full of phonies. He was terrifically intelligent and the nicest person. My brother Peter’s baseball mitt is a thing that I keep very close to my heart. It’s a symbol of our companionship. Although Peter is gone, the memory of his good and loving soul is captured in this worn out mitt. Peter’s glove is a left-handed fielder’s mitt. The glove isn’t in very good shape. The smooth and firm leather of the mitt is now quite ragged. The stitching of the mitt is loose and is in desperate need for repair. Dirt and dust from numerous baseball fields have taken its toll and damaged the sturdy webbing of the mitt. What used to be a well-inscribed white logo of a company has disappeared, with the exception of the lonely remains of a letter “d”, now standing all alone. The most outstanding part of the mitt are the numerous poems written on it. My brother copied the poems, so he had something to read, when no one was up at bat. The bright green ink, what used to be like the first green leaves on a warm spring day, is now faded, but still readable. One poem that stands out is written on the backside of the glove, where time hasn’t caused a lot of damage. The leather, on which the poem is written on, is in excellent condition, when comparing it with the rest of the glove. Both the author and the title of the poem remain unknown to me and I’d like if it stayed like that. Sometimes I even dream, that Peter wrote......
