(500) Days of Summer ​

is an ongoing relationship between two people,  Tom Hansen,  and Summer Finn.  Summer,  was a very fine looking women who always attracted the attention of all men,  including Tom.  For Tom,  it was love at first sight when she walked into the greeting card company where he worked,  she the new administrative assistant.  Day after day Tom had realized Summer was the one.  On the other hand,  Summer did not believe in relationships or boyfriends,  in her assertion,  real life will always ultimately get in the way.  Tom and Summer began to be more than friends even after,  " life always getting in the way”.  Through the trials and tribulations of Tom and Summer's so­called relationship,  Tom could always count on the advice of his two best friends,  McKenzie and Paul.  Toms sister,  Rachel is the voice of the reason; always bringing up reasons on why Tom and Summer should not be together.  After all is said and done,  Tom is the one who ultimately has to make the choice to listen or not.  This film is not what it sounds just like,  it is indeed about love,  but it is not a love story.  The Unified Synopsis of ​

The writers of this film seemed to have put in multiple types of psychological concepts,  making the movie what it is.  There is various amounts of psychological theories such as,  psychoanalytic theory​

,  ​

psychodynamic theory​

,  ​

cognitive development theory​

,  and ​

behaviorВ

theory​

.  There are also several concepts such as,  ​

life changes​

,  ​

emotional detachment​

,  ​

locusВ ofВ

control, ​

​

Sternberg's Triangular Theory of Love​

,  ​

role confusion​

,   ​

andВ

depression. ​

This film is a great representation of these 10 concepts listed.   According to STRAIGHTEDGEISBEAUTIFUL,  In the movie,  it seems that Tom and Summer are two completely different people,  the way they think of love,  or life in general.  ‘​

Locus of control​

' A person's " locus” is conceptualized as either ​ internal​

(theВ personВ believesВ

they can control their life) or ​

external​

В 

(meaningВ theyВ believeВ thatВ theirВ decisionsВ andВ lifeВ areВ controlledВ byВ environmentalВ factorsВ whichВ theyВ cannotВ influence). В InВ theВ movieВ weВ seeВ TomВ blameВ theВ worldВ itВ seemsВ whenВ thingsВ areВ notВ goingВ well, В heВ saysВ somethingВ alongВ theВ linesВ of, В " Yeah, В ifВ IВ livedВ inВ aВ worldВ whereВ goodВ thingsВ happenedВ toВ me. ” WhenВ TomВ hasВ justВ meetВ SummerВ heВ tellsВ herВ heВ hasВ beenВ workingВ forВ theВ companyВ forВ 4В yearsВ butВ doesВ notВ enjoyВ it, В...
