It's Official: Darth Vader was Crazy

A French psychiatrist took a look at Anakin Skywalker's gradual descent to the dark side and found that nobody should have been surprised by the outcome. He noted Darth Vader possessed “six of the nine borderline personality disorder criteria" and had this to say:

"... the future Darth Vader showed both impulsivity and anger management issues as an overexcited, lovelorn Jedi. He went back and forth between idealizing and devaluing Jedi mentors, such as a humorless young Obi-Wan Kenobi."

 "Using the dark side of the Force could be considered as similar to drug use: It feels really good when you use it, it alters your consciousness and you know you shouldn't do it."
