An amazing array of abnormal psychology display

Salad Fingers appears to show multiple classical signs of paranoid schizoform (schizophrenia), sociopathy, multiple personality disorder, and sado-massachistic characteristics. Fingers creates false realities for himself, mostly hallucinatory as we can tell from the vast backgrounds. He believes he can find France and constantly disassociates into different places when upset. As a sociopath he has trouble with social situations, evident when the weird boy took a liking to him, and Fingers could not handle it. He did not like where he was and said he was leaving. Another example of disassociation. He also does not feels no guilt when he kills the catapillar because he does not believe he did anything wrong. His friends are nothing more than alternate personalities of himself, perhaps a defensive mechanism from distant child abuse. More evidence for abuse appears in his gender issues, as he disassociates into a female character named Mable in the last episode. He was most likely sexually abused by his father, and therefore feels shame for his gender, so he escapes into female form with absence of the male characteristics that were abused as a child. Mable also has no eyes, a defensive mechanism; what you can't see can't hurt you. This leads into self mutalation, in which he finds release. He probably believes the abuse was a sign of love from his father, and therefore seeks that comfort in hurting himself in later episodes. He also believes he deserved the abuse he recieved and therefore holds anger at himself and further answers the self-damaging dilemma. His paranoia is evident from his fear of losing his spoons as in the last episode. When fingers does not like the situation he is in, he creates alternate realities where he finds serenidy, an excellent example of schizoform. I will definitely recommend this cartoon to my students.
