Bill Clinton, In Light of Adlerian Psychology

It can be argued that of all of America's presidents, Bill Clinton was the most psychologically complex. He knew the least about his paternal family of origin background. He began life in humble circumstances and against huge obstacles, he attended. Yale, became a Rhode Scholar, Governor of Arkansas and President of the United States. People either adore Bill Clinton or they hate him, there seems to be little emotion in between. This study views Clinton using the psychology of Alfred Adler. Various aspects of Clinton's political life are discussed and analyzed. Adlerian psychology views the individual as a whole person who can only be understood by examining all the aspects of her/his life. Bill Clinton is examined by viewing him in the context of his early social environments, the influential people in his life and his movement and choices in life.
