    Welcome warmly to BM! Please rate 5/5 for my personal notes/ideas.

    As you briefly reflect upon what you observed in the fictional movie, Fight Club, the movie demonstrates the application of Positive Psychology quite prominently to me. When Jack learns that violence cannot benefit him, I feel that he could likely benefit from the healing, affirmative concepts of positive psychology.

    For example, I also see gender implications in terms of cultural competence as power dynamics permeate as Jack joins the secret club of guys to reclaim their bare-knuckled fighting. Because Jack is fatherless, I see obvious psychological ramifications in his quest for identity and a sense of belonging.

    I see so much existential grief and pain as he is depicted with a gun in his mouth. I see positive psychological concepts as a way to revive his lifeless life, alienation, and guilt.

    In terms of some of the symbolism of Jack as a slave to IKEA, I also see a lot of cultural connections to America's overemphasis on materialism and consumerism.
