Episode 116 – The Psychology of Aquaman

This week’s episode is all about Aquaman, the movie. First, we talked about our overall impressions (which included some tangents about movie theater seats and movie lengths). Next, we discussed how we think Aquaman has low levels of the personality trait neuroticism, while King Orm has high levels of the personality trait narcissism. Then, we talked about why we think Queen Atlanna and Princess Mera would be considered good (but not lawful) in Dungeons and Dragons alignment terms. Finally, we talked about how one of our favorite parts of the movie was the overall message that a child born of two different worlds can act as a bridge between two cultures, and how we appreciated the director’s intentionality with that message. What did you think of the movie? Let us know on Twitter (@jedi_counsel)!
