    Default Could a psychologist/therapist have helped the GWM overcome his performance anxiety?

    The Golden Wheel Monk is known as one of the biggest chokers in wulin. Despite having power and skill that could match him favorably against the Greats of the Central Plains, he constantly loses either to them or even weaker opponents due to his lack of mental clutch.

    If psychologists/therapists as we know them today were available to the Golden Wheel Monk, could a good one have helped the Golden Wheel Monk overcome his performance anxiety and actually stop choking away fights he could win?

    The modern therapy industry would consider many of JY's characters to be potential patients.

    YG --- oedipal complex

    HCQ --- food issues

    LHC --- substance abuse issues

    DFBB, YBQ, LPZ --- gender issues

    All of the above plus ZLC and RWX --- megalomania

    WXB --- psychopathic tendencies, as well as sex/gambling addiction

    Princess Jianning --- sado-masochism

    ZWJ --- chronic indecisiveness

    Anger Management for Ladies: HR, GF, ZM, RYY, YSS, LMC --- this will teach them to stop cutting arms, ears, asking people to blind themselves, etc. for the most trivial reasons.

    The shrinks would make a killing (pun intended) on wulin mental patients.

    Hahaha. But the difficulty would be to find a therapist who is willing to take the risk. After all, all of these potential patients are powerful martial artists. Many of them would kill without blinking. Imagine what they would do if they aren't happy with the advice or the hourly fees.

    The only one among them that is probably safe to treat is the compassionate ZWJ.

    Cheung Mo Gei would *be* the shrink.

    Ah yes, I completely overlooked ZWJ's medical abilities. He'd make a good shrink! I'd advise him not to receive lady patients, though, especially the pretty ones.

    Yeah. Malpractice would ensue.

    I don't know if he'd be able to advise the Golden Wheel Monk much on choking either, considering he seems to have a similar problem himself.

    I agree. JLFW should look for another shrink. ZWJ should specialize on conducting anger management classes. He'd be able to overwhelm the fiercer wulin personalities with his compassionate teachings, and if all else fails, he'd be able to subdue them with his high level of martial arts.

    As for the pretty lady patients --- yes, ZWJ would definitely get sued.

    Cheung Mo Gei could have worked wonders for Kau Cheen Yan.

    He should definitely invite Reverend Yideng to be a guest speaker at his anger management class.

    Yideng's soft chanting was somewhat effective, but much more effective was actually confronting QQR's demons, like HR recreating his fear of the baby's mother, and YG making him feel death.

    This is consistent with my experience in real life that confrontation is the best way to address a big problem.
