The Alienist is not so alien for introverts and the pre-depressed…
How many times have you been called a weirdo? For just being different.
I must say that watching The Alienist on Netflix is not everyone’s cup of tea.
Not all of you can stomach the brutal killings and darker storylines that suck happiness out of your soul.
Because The Alienist can make you feel like that.
But some of you introverts might like watching a weird psychotic doctor solving murder mysteries.
Dr. Kreizler, with Miss Sara and John, tried to free the city of New York from child murderers.
As comforting as it sounds, there are some psychopaths that goes through so much trauma in their lives that they turn into animals.
The biggest trait of Dr. Kreizler was identifying the root cause of the problem.
Even though the child murderer is on the hunt, he kept on figuring out why would someone do that.
You see, he is a people’s person.
I agree that he doesn’t socialise much or have zero friends but still he has faith in them.
This is the reason why some of them are drawn to his personality like Miss Sara and John.
Dr. Kreizler aka The Alienist is something special.
He doesn’t judge you.
He doesn’t point fingers at you.
He doesn’t tried to pin you down.
He doesn’t feel disgusted by your actions.
Because The Alienist have faith in people and he wanted to know how a child trauma can negatively impact a person so much.
He wanted to know the reason so he can treat others better. Dr Kreizler wanted to ensure no one else has to go through the same trauma and negative feelings that turn humans into child-killing monsters.
This is a trait of an intelligent person. To learn the problems firsthand and figure out the trigger signs. That makes you a deep thinker instead of a weirdo.
Life lesson: figure out the underlying trigger when you see a tough problem and determine what’s causing it. After that, you can deal with the problem much better.
This can help you solve big problems, like Kreizler did, and help others too who are going through something similar.
Need some real life examples?
For instance, you can’t buy a car even when you have a job.
Underlying trigger? You order pizzas when you are bored or shop online when you are taking a dump in the toilet. Therefore you run out of money soon. And you have no cash to buy a vehicle.
You can make this a daily practice and try to figure out problems and their underlying triggers.
Hope it helps you cut down your big or small problems.
If it doesn’t then there more arsenal on the way.
