Is Joffrey a psychopath? Why is Ramsay Bolton so mean?


Westeros doesn't seem to have psychologists to answer these questions, but thankfully the real world does.

Dr. Kirk Honda is a licensed marriage and family therapist who hosts a podcast called Psychology in Seattle. On the show, he's "diagnosed" a few Game of Thrones villains as if they were patients on his office couch.

Of course, no psychologist or psychiatrist can actually diagnose anyone, real or fictional, without meeting them. But Honda took his best shot anyway.

You can listen to everything Honda had to say about each character in his podcast, available here, but he also agreed to provide Business Insider with a short summary of five characters' diagnoses.
