Title of Paper


COUN5214 – Theories of Personality


This paper is a theoretical analysis of Antwone Fisher using the Psychodynamic Theory. Antwone Fisher is the main character in the movie Antwone Fisher. The paper was written so that I could discuss my observations, analyze his human behavior based on his actions and emotions in the film and then explain how that all fits into the psychodynamic theory and how that can be used to allow him to see and understand his issues so that he can move forward in life productively instead of continuing to head for self-destruction. The paper will also analyze Antwone using the five components and the external and internal conflicts that influence Antwone throughout the movie.
