Stiles has mentioned repeatedly in the series that he was diagnosed with ADHD.

Stiles leaves his seat during class many times throughout the show. He sometimes jumps up from his seat to move around the class or just leave class. During the first episode of Teen Wolf Stiles surprises Scott by hanging upside down in front of his house. He spends a lot of time running around or always on the go. Stiles is known for his excessive and often nonsensical talking. He is often in scenarios where his life is in danger and he still talks excessively. He often says that sarcasm is his only defense.
Aside from the DSM symptoms, Stiles displays other aspects of ADHD accurately in the series. He greatly lacks motor skill coordination. He trips over himself and often has his limbs wailing about. Though Stiles is on his school 's lacrosse team he is usually placed on t...

- The Power of The Sea-Wolf Jack London’s novel, The Sea-Wolf, has many different interpretations. The story can be read as a combination of the naturalistic novel and the sentimental romance, both very popular around the turn of the century. London also brings into play literary naturalism, in which human beings are characterized as just another species in nature, subject to all of Her cosmic forces. The Sea-Wolf fits almost perfectly the archetypal pattern of an initiation story. Depth and interest are added to The Sea-Wolf by successfully integrating these three elements -- the combination of two popular genres, literary naturalism, and the initiation story....

- Transformation of Humphrey Van Weyden in Jack London’s The Sea Wolf Jack London’s The Sea Wolf is in some ways a philosophical text and a product of its time. The strain it puts on the reader between a social Darwinist and utilitarian perspective against that of a more idealistic one is great. Many times the character of Wolf Larsen is a more consistent articulator of the Darwinian position and seems to always be getting the upper hand argumentatively. However, it is due to a phenomenological outlook on the events presented within The Sea Wolf that the alternative becomes intelligible.... [tags: Sea Wolf]
