Psychoanalysis of Holden Caulfield As shown in the way Holden expresses his ideas and feelings, it is obvious that this young man has many problems mentally. Holden does not seem to be as perfect as he makes himself out to be. He cant even go to a football game without feeling like he is conforming to the rest of society. This boy needs to face reality and realize that he cannot be a loner and an outcast his whole life. It is not possible for him to live this “phony free lifestyle” especially when he is giving in to the things he made fun of before. For example, all he talks about is how much he hates the movies and actors but at one point in his life he actually goes to the movies by himself. This just shows the hypocrisy of Holden Caulfield
