He not only has to deal with isolation, but also with keeping a connection with God to fill the empty void of no companion at sea. His pride and isolation become more apparent towards the end of the book.

Isolation is a theme that comes across hardheaded right from the first page in the book. The first line says, “He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone 84 days now without taking a fish”.

For the first time since he started his solo voyage across the Atlantic, Jim realized that he was completely and utterly alone. As Jim stood contemplating his lonesome situation, he was distracted by a sudden thump on the starboard side of his boat. Rushing to peer over the side, Jim became paralyzed with fear.

To sum up the plot from what I understood, this is Poe's one novel, a strange tale of adventure and hardship on the high seas. With the help of his friend Augustus, Pym stows away on the Grampus (their ship), which is almost immediately subject to a brutal mutiny. Violence and terrible storms leave Arthur, Augustus, a few others stranded on the floating wreckage of the ship for weeks on end. Attempts to retrieve edible materials from locked quarters below the waterline, and a little cannibalism, enable a couple men to survive until rescued by the Jane Guy. That ship is headed for Antarctica, to find a route that will come closest to the South Pole.
He cannot work well as one nor can he work well as a team player because he needs to have self confidence. Self confidence is very essential. Many sports psychologists help athletes to realize that if you are less confident about yourself, the tendency is for that someone not to take the challenge and the risks.

With having self confidence, anything seems possible, and without it, you will conquer nothing.

Since trainers in boot camp usually do not consider highly where people came from, or what culture background they had, some people do not coop easily with those changes. Some studies have stated that soldiers who cannot fit in military settings tend to develop mental disorders, and the reason is closely related to deindividuation. Although the correlation is vague and data is not enough to convince everybody, deindividuation is still a risky method because not everybody can adapt quickly to changes, especially with identity issue and stressful
Even the strongest relationship... ... middle of paper ... ... to work harder to live, they no longer have the camaraderie they initially had. “Eliezer…Eliezer…tell them not to beat me … I haven't done anything.” Relationships play a very important part in life. In times of great stress we either run to the people closest to us or run away leaving them in our shadow. Whether this relationship is between a father and son, or just between a someone you don’t even know they all, play a huge difference in the way we run our lives. When we are forced to think about survival or when we come close the death, we have to rethink these relationships.
