It’s no secret that President Donald Trump has been the subject of much speculation and debate. But what does his inner psyche look like? A team of experts, including psychologists, psychoanalysts and cognitive scientists, bored housewives & backseat drivers have come together to provide an in-depth analysis of the president’s mind.
Who are our Team of Experts Analyzing Trump’s Mind
These experts have done extensive research on the president’s public speeches, tweets, and other various public statements in order to gain a better understanding of his mind.
As we all know, the best way to psycho-analyze someone is to draw hasty conclusions from your couch whilst going over recent Trump tweets and media coverage.
Sandy is our local self proclaimed expert psychologist because in her words: “She has been in therapy herself for 15 years, so I know a thing or two about psychological stuff”.
Mindy is another fine specimen who has watched a lot of videos
Professor D. Macy is our resident cognitive therapist, who will be trying to analyze Trump on his public persona. “I don’t analyze people without having had one-on-one sessions in my private practise, so don’t ask me again, this is completely foolish”.
Alright, we’ll go with Sandy and Mindy’s analysis it seems.
The Cognitive Science Behind His Thinking
Sandy thinks Trump’s outbursts are all because of a loveless childhood. “His father was distant, and his mother overly controlling. I think he’s trying to fill the void with attention from the public in order to make up for those lacking emotional bonds.”
Mindy disagrees: “I don’t agree at all. Trump’s behavior is classic narcissistic grandiosity, where he displays a need to always be in control and be admired by everyone. He’s also constantly trying to prove that he is the smartest person in the room and the best at whatever he does.”
The team then comes together to examine Trump’s overall cognitive capabilities. Professor Macy chimes in: “Stop asking me questions about this stuff, it’s completely insane.”
Exploring How His Decisions are Influenced by Those Around Him
The team then moves on to the topic of how Trump’s decisions are influenced by those around him. Sandy believes that he is often easily led by strong personalities in his inner circle, such as Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner. Mindy disagrees again: “I think he listens to their advice, but ultimately does what he wants.”
Mindy even elaborates further by declaring, “Trump is a master manipulator and uses his charisma to steer conversations and decisions to his own end. He’s also very good at positioning himself as the hero of any situation, no matter how insignificant it may be.”
The team then turns to examining the impact of media coverage on Trump’s decision-making. Professor Macy sums it up nicely: “How did you get my number, seriously? Could you please stop bothering me? I’m really starting to get sick of these shenanigans!”
Trump’s Mindset and how it affects his communication skills
Finally, the team moves on to examining Trump’s communication skills. Sandy believes that Trump is often overly aggressive in his interactions and doesn’t take criticism very well. “I think he’s trying to mask his insecurity by coming across as powerful and intimidating,” she says “My therapist always told me that I am projecting my issues onto others, I believe Donald is doing the same”.

Mindy has a different opinion: “He uses satire and humour to make his points, but it often gets lost in the mix. It’s a way for him to escape responsibility and deflect blame.”
Professor Macy’s conclusion was a simple one: “That’s it, I’m blocking this number!”
Trump’s final diagnosis?
Well, it’s certainly an interesting one. While Sandy and Mindy had some conflicting views, they both agreed that Trump is often driven by his own insecurities and grandiosity suggesting some hints of narcissism.
We have tried to reach out to Professor Macy for comments on this diagnosis, sadly we were left with voice mail.
