Who has never spent hours watching a boy and his bear in the 100 Acre Wood? At first glance, the Winnie the Pooh cartoons look completely normal. But when they were examined by experts, several psychological problems were discovered in all the characters
A study published in the Canadian Medical Association suggests that Winnie the Pooh’s characters are more adult oriented. This is because they represent various symptoms of mental illness, similar to what occurs in our real world society.
1. Winnie the Pooh
Winnie The Pooh struggles with ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. His scattered thoughts, his disorganized lifestyle and constant forgetfulness are typical symptoms of this condition.
He is always unhappy or depressed, and is probably the saddest character in the history of children’s books. He suffers from severe depression.
Roo seems to show symptoms of autism. He has two faces: sometimes he doesn’t pay attention to anything around him and ends up in rather dangerous situations. Other times, he decides to sit quietly in his mother’s pouch, completely ignoring the world.
He is constantly worried and hypervigilant about what can happen, a symptom of anxiety. If he is surprised by things like noises and movements, he runs or hides. Piglet likes things that leave him calm…
Kanga suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder. She is worried about her son and how she will survive as a single mother. If Roo really has autism, this can make her anxiety intensify. One of the reasons she likes to always be attentive to the child, or have him in her pouch.
It appears that Rabbit may suffer from OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He must have everything in his life constantly organized, and any interruption of this organization causes great anguish. He gets very nervous when his world is not in perfect order and harmony.
Like Pooh, he is a picture of hyperactivity. Tigger can’t be quiet and likes to make impulsive decisions.
8. Christopher Robin
He is the only human being who lives in the 100 Acre Wood, it’s easy to see that the world is the product of his imagination. Christopher Robin’s imagination is very realistic, leading to the possibility of him suffering from schizophrenia.
