Overcompensation


James W. Dean Jr. on Citizen Kane

This psychological study of the making of a publishing empire is based on the life of William Randolph Hearst, whose overwhelming drive for business success was based on compensating for his abandonment by his parents.

Patricia Chui on The Social Network

The Social Network starts with a breakup — Mark Zuckerberg’s (Jesse Eisenberg) breakup with his girlfriend Erica Albright (Rooney Mara). In the movie, Erica grows exasperated with Mark’s arrogant attitude and dumps him. This leads to a long night in which Mark gets drunk, blogs vitriolically about Erica and then invents Facemash, a site that lets users rank Harvard women by comparing photos from the college’s dormitory directories (or face books). And this, eventually, sparks his idea for Facebook.

… Zuckerberg invented Facebook to impress/get over his ex-girlfriend …

Overcompensation.
