In the movie, John Anna’s actions loud easily tell us some aspects of his personality, this being known as surface traits. We also see that John was an introvert, meaning that he preferred solitude and didn’t enjoy being the center or attention. I had to see this movie twice in order for me to develop some sort of feeling and reaction, mainly toward John and his wife.
I personally feel sad for John, and for his wife I feel both sad and a deep admiration for staying with a man who was basically disabled. I don’t think it was fair for her to live her life with a man who was delusional most of the time, and with whom she loud not share the normal things one shares In a marriage.

John Nash suffered from schizophrenia. For the most part of this college life, he believed his best friend Charles was real, as well as his niece, and agent William. It was difficult for him to tell them apart from reality and Imagination and to the day he received the Nobel Prize, he saw the present. He also suffered from illustrations, described In the textbook as false sensory perceptions, such as hearing voices that to not really exist. In a particular scene we got to see how these hallucinations made John a threat to his wife and child.
The scene being when John saw William pointing a fun to his wife and hear him saying that she was a threat, causing John to react by throwing her to the ground while the tried to call her mother and held the baby. Anxiety could have been a big factor In the Illness of John Nash, for example, not knowing what his thesis would be about, the anxiety of talking William would kill him. By validation could not share the normal things one shares in a marriage.
