Disney princess and psychology disorder they display

If you're a fan of Disney princesses and know the traits that each one exhibits, you've probably noticed some similarities between them and their supposed mental illnesses. Here's how each princess may suffer from the following disorders:

Belle - Social Anxiety

Belle is a beautiful and intelligent young woman who is often misunderstood. She has a strong sense of justice, but she is also sensitive and shy. She has a strong belief in the power of books, which she uses to teach herself to read.

Her love for reading eventually leads Belle on an adventure to find her father's lost invention - a lamp that grants wishes when rubbed by its owner. The story ends happily with Belle marrying her true love, Prince Adam/Prince Charming (who was turned into a beast by an enchantress).

Belle's character traits make her prime material for Social Anxiety Disorder diagnosis:

Cinderella- Anxiety

Cinderella is a classic example of someone who suffers from anxiety. She has a fear of failure, which is a common symptom of anxiety. She also avoids confrontation and criticism at all costs, which can be seen as signs of low self-esteem.

Cinderella's story follows the classic pattern for someone with an anxiety disorder: she doesn't feel like she belongs in her world or has any control over her life (which explains why she spends so much time running away from life). This feeling leads her to avoid social situations where she could interact with others because there's too much risk involved--what if they don't like me?

What if I say something stupid?

Elsa - Bipolar Disorder

Elsa is a classic example of a person with bipolar disorder. She is constantly swinging between two extremes: the highs of manic episodes and the lows of depressive episodes. Elsa has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder by her doctor, who has prescribed her medicine to help keep this condition under control.

Bipolar disorder is characterized by swings in moods that range from extreme happiness or irritability (mania) to severe depression, which may include suicidal thoughts or actions if left untreated. A person with bipolar disorder may have periods when they feel normal and stable between bouts of illness where they experience symptoms such as anxiety attacks; difficulty sleeping at night because their mind won't stop racing; trouble focusing on anything but random thoughts; feeling hopeless about things getting better in life despite evidence to prove otherwise (a common symptom among people suffering from depression); excessive irritability toward others around them due to being unable to control their feelings--or even themselves--during these times.

Rapunzel - Borderline Personality Disorder

As the princess who has been locked in a tower for 18 years, Rapunzel displays many borderline personality disorder symptoms. She is a very emotional character who can be impulsive and aggressive. She suffers from unstable relationships, self-destructive behavior and intense mood swings that are not typical of other Disney princesses.

Snow White - Major Depression

This is the most common disorder that Disney princesses display. Depression is a mood disorder that can affect your thoughts, feelings, behavior, and physical health.

Depression symptoms include sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities once enjoyed; changes in appetite or weight (such as overeating); sleep disturbances; fatigue or loss of energy; feelings of worthlessness or guilt; difficulty concentrating on things such as work or schoolwork; recurrent thoughts about death or suicide.

Ariel - PTSD and Panic Disorders

Ariel is a Disney princess who has PTSD and panic disorders. The disorder can develop after a person experiences a shocking, scary or dangerous event. Ariel's father was killed by a shark while he was swimming in the sea and she witnessed it happen. She was traumatized by this experience and had nightmares about it for years after he died.

The symptoms of PTSD include flashbacks of the traumatic event, avoidance of things that remind you of your trauma (like water), feeling on edge all the time, trouble sleeping or concentrating, irritability or outbursts of anger.

Jasmine - Eating Disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating)

Jasmine is a princess who suffers from eating disorders. She has anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. Jasmine shows signs of anxiety and depression as well as perfectionism. She is also very emotional and low self-esteem, which can lead to these disorders.


The takeaway here is that Disney princesses are not just fictional characters. They are real people with real issues, even if their disorders may not be as severe as those of actual humans. If you're looking for a way to teach your child about mental health and its disorders, there's no better way than through the classic stories of these beloved characters.


To conclude, Disney princesses are not real people. They are fictional characters created by Disney to entertain children and adults alike. However, these characters have become so popular that their stories have been retold over and over again in different forms of media like books, movies and TV shows. Each princess has her own unique personality traits which can be used as an example for young girls who want to grow up into strong women someday.
