Anakin Skywalker souffrait de troubles de la personnalité



Un psychologue français a travaillé à décrypter le comportement d'Anakin Skywalker et sa sombre progression vers le côté obscur de la Force... Selon les auteurs d'un article -actuellement sous press dans Psychiatry Research, (Eric Bui et al. du laboratoire du Stress Traumatique, Toulouse) le héros de Star Wars serait porteur d'une série de comportements instables et impulsifs (cf. 2ème et 3ème films) qui en feraient un candidat idéal pour souffrir de troubles de la personnalité limite (TPL).

Anakin serait en effet atteint de 6 des 9 symptômes qui caractérisent la TPL établie par le DSM IV.

Voici un extrait de l'article en question:

the absence of Anakin's father and his early separation from hismother (Bandelow et al., 2005) and the use of defense mechanisms such as splitting, projection, and infantile illusions of omnipotence (Gabbard, 1994). Further elements are to be found in the young Anakin's difficulties in emotional and impulse regulation, and dysfunctional experiences of self and others. Reference to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition (DSM-IV), reveals that the character fulfilled

six of the nine borderline personality disorder (BPD) criteria. He presented impulsivity and difficulty controlling his anger and alternated between idealisation and devaluation (of his Jedi mentors). Permanently afraid of losing his wife, he made frantic efforts to avoid her abandonment and went as far as betraying his former Jedi companions.

He also experienced two dissociative episodes secondary to stressful events. One occurred after his mother's death, when he exterminated a whole tribe of Tuskanpeople,while the other one took place just after he turned to the dark side. He slaughtered all the Jedi younglings before voicing paranoid thoughts concerning his former mentor and his wife.

La transformation d'Anakin en Dark Vador, plus liée à des problèmes psychologiques qu'à la force, serait donc due..
