Psychology Project! - May 18th 2009, 04:34 AM

Hey everyone!

I have to do a psychological diagnosis of a famous person for my psychology project. It can't be someone too famous who would be too easy to diagnose (Ex. Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Adolf Hitler, etc.). Some examples of people my friends are doing are: Courtney Love, Owen Wilson, OJ Simpson, Amy Winehouse and Dennis Rodman. Does anyone have any suggestions of people that I could do?

Thanks!

Famous as in a celebrity actor/singer, or just someone well known? Does it have to be someone still alive, or can it be someone historical?


Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

Lindsey Lohan? or is that too obvious? Bit obvious really. Hmm ... do they have to have apparent psychological problems? You've got Katie Price -- would be interesting -- Brad Pitt, Angelia Jolie, the whole Tom Cruise Scientology malarky.

Great project though!

I think Courtney Love would be a good one, since you could focus on her drug use, her relationship with Kurt Cobain, her relationship with her daughter, how fame has affected her postively/negatively, etc etc.

I think I agree with whoever said Lindsey Lohan, if that's not *really* obvious but I don't see how it would be. (:

Just pick someone that you personally are interested in and it will make the project so much more fun!

Thanks everyone for the replies! I've decided to do Andy Warhol.. I hope he's a good one to pick. My teacher didn't specify if the person had to be alive or not, but I've known some people do classical music composers and various historical figures.

Thanks again for the help!

That's pretty sweet! Andy Warhol sounds like a very interesting one to me. Since you've chosen, I suppose I'll go on my merry way and close this thread, but I hope it goes well for you! If you A) have any other questions related to this project or B) want to post it once you're done, don't hesitate to PM me. Take care.
