NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- "Seinfeld" may have been a show about nothing, but a psychiatry professor is using it for much more than that.

Medical students at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School are learning about psychiatric disorders through Dr. Anthony Tobia's "Psy-feld" teaching tool, NJ.com reports.

Tobia has created a database of teaching points from all the show's episodes. Third- and fourth-year medical students are assigned to watch two episodes a week and then gather to discuss the psychopathology demonstrated on each.


"You have a very diverse group of personality traits that are maladaptive on the individual level," Tobia said. "When you get these friends together the dynamic is such that it literally creates a plot: Jerry's obsessive compulsive traits combined with Kramer's schizoid traits, with Elaine's inability to forge meaningful relationships and with George being egocentric."

His diagnosis of Newman? "Very sick."

The students gathered around a conference table on a recent day, analyzing an episode from the night before. Third-year student Marlene Wang said that the exercise leads to having more practical and relatable examples than a textbook.

"In this way, it just gives you a more solid picture of the pathology rather than just giving you words," Wang said.

Tobia has also written an academic paper that analyzes five of Elaine's boyfriends from the show to explain delusional disorder.

He also teaches a course where students tweet thoughts about characters' potential psychiatric disorders while watching films like "Fargo."

Jews have seen all those episodes how many times by now?  Big opportunity to show Harvard goy just how "smart" and comedically clever jews are!

Any analysis of the show useless w/o describing the Jewish angle. While many shows have ~all-Jewish staff/cast, Seinfeld was clearly about NYC Jewish life. To the Seinfeld bunch, Goyim were inconsequential, sort of like driftwood floating down a river.

Professor Tobia should be charged w/Anti-Semitism, calling Jews "schizoid", "obsessive-compulsive" & "sick".
