Monk is an old USA tv show that follows the obsessive compulsive “defective detective” Adrian Monk. I identify with Monk for multiple reasons. For one, I pay very close attention to detail, often shutting out my surroundings to focus on one thing at a time. Monk is able to solve crimes because he sees the details hidden in the bigger picture, allowing him to find clues and connect the dots.

I also see myself in monk through his flaw. As mentioned, Monk is obsessive compulsive. He’s germaphobic, clausterphobic, and pretty much afraid of everything else (including milk). Though I don’t have the laundry list of fears like Monk, I have slightly obsessive compulsive tendencies often. For one, I can’t leave a door cracked or it drives me crazy; it either has to be open or shut just pick one. I also hate change much like Monk does. He is set in his ways and would like to keep it that way. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. This has always been something I have known about myself since I was a little kid, having a sister who is 10 years older than me go often to college, then my brother 5 years later drove me crazy adapting to an empty house. But I digress; though Monk is burdened by his phobias he is quick to pick up on the details and read between the lines, something I like to think I share with him.
