Editor’s note: This article contains spoilers for the television show “You.”
When season 1 of “You” aired, fans took to Twitter to discuss Goldberg’s mental health, though he’s never diagnosed with a particular condition in either season. Still, many viewers seemed to believe he is a psychopath.
But according to mental health experts, Goldberg’s mental health is more complicated, especially since the term psychopath doesn’t hold much meaning, clinically speaking.
Goldberg shows signs of antisocial personality disorder, narcissism, and codependency in season 1.
In season 2, however, flashbacks to Goldberg’s past suggest he could actually be none of those and have an attachment disorder.
