Need help for a school project XD  
Okay, so my psychology prof asked if I wanted to "guest lecture" on the topic of Abnormal Psychology. I had done a project in one of my past abnormal psych classes where I took clips from Ranma 1/2 and matched each character to a psychological disorder and had the class guess the disorder. I was wondering if I could do the same with FMA, and that's where I need your help XD Ranma was easy, but I'm having a hard time thinking of any good 'disorders' that the FMA cast display. If I can't find enough, I'll just re-use my Ranma stuff, but I'd rather do something new.

So an example would be... I can probably put Post Traumatic Stress Disorder with Roy... using the flashback scene from his battle with Ed.

possible matches
Roy - PTSD
Armstrong - histrionic
Scheska - bibliomania
Ed - IED
Kimbly - sociopath
Breda - cynophobia

Hughes could probably go with obsessive compulsive disorder - not quite sure if that's what you're looking for, though.

Kimblee is probably a good one to use, too, although I have no idea what the disorder is. I never took psych. Same with Al - I'm sure it matches up with something, but I haven't the slightest clue of the disorder.

Hmm, you could say that Kimblee shows signs of being a sociopath and a psychopath because of his behavior as well as his lack of remorse.

Hmm, you could probably try to link Dante to narcissism because of her feelings of superiority over others as well as her bleak view of the human race (which doesn't extend to herself of course).

I was actually thinking about Envy being narcissistic...

haha you might say ed has an oedipus complex.

and that envy is bipolar (there's a nice clip of him going apeshit when dante tells him hohenheim is dead.. not sure what ep that is though.)

and breda seems to have some kind of hyperphobia of dogs.

i bet there's more! *thinks about it*
versa6032versa6032 on May 3rd, 2006 08:07 am (UTC)
I would say Envy has more of and oedipus complex. (they both do, but I think Envy more). Mainly because he wants to kill Hohenheim.

I like the one you came up with for Breda. =)

Ed=Borderline Personality Disorder
腹蛇youkofujima on May 2nd, 2006 10:38 pm (UTC)
Also, list of wacky disorders. I believe Scheska can be described as a "biblomaniac?"

Kimblee = Sociopath, Pyromanic

Wrath = Bipolar, Intermittent Explosive Disorder (Several discrete episodes of failure to resist aggressive impulses that result in serious assaultive acts or destruction of property. The degree of aggressiveness expressed during the episodes is grossly out of proportion to any precipitating psychosocial stressors.)

IED could also work for Envy.

Acidic Angelqara_isuke on May 2nd, 2006 10:39 pm (UTC)
On the other hand, you could use Ed for IED. His violent reactions to being called short /are/ sort of extreme. o_O

LJ died on me. Again.

I don't know if this counts as a disorder, but Al definitely had amnesia. And Ed may well be dissociative himself(blacking out after seeing the corpse, denial when seeing Juliet Douglas).

Tucker....really should be on this list. But uh..the man's too caculating to be sociopathic, and too open to be shizoid personality disorder(and he's definitely not schizophrenic). hm....still looking.

are you going to use Barry the Chopper? He definately has some psychological problems! lol
homestuck: we be pimpin'donkey on May 3rd, 2006 04:36 pm (UTC)
Selective mutism for Rose, maybe? I haven't started psychology yet so I don't really know ^^
Sophic Proxy: Inigo is actually going to brennadouglasmw on May 3rd, 2006 10:42 pm (UTC)

LMAO!! Yeah, there's a difference between OCD and just plain proud parent syndrome XD Thanks! I just have to find scenes that will portray these and I'm set.

Someone said Envy might have an Oedipus complex, but there's one problem: He does NOT love his mother. At all. No sign of it.

Hughes with OCD...I don't really see that, but there definitely is an unhealthy obsession with his daughter. That's not OCD though, at least not the type I know of.

Roy definitely has post-traumatic stress disorder. See ep. 13. That random flashback right there at the end of the fight? Yeah.

Ed, definitely Oedipus complex, strong attachment to mother, despises father to point of wanting to kill him, etc.
Amithreeonetwo on May 3rd, 2006 10:49 pm (UTC)
...Didn't see the comment just above mine. Yeah, those're pretty much all correct. xD
