Season 4 of Rick and Morty is giving us a brand new, deeper look into the mind of our favorite genius, Rick Sanchez. Throughout the run of the show, people have speculated about what's going on with the smartest man in the universe. Today, I have gathered all the data I need to really dissect his brain. I think we may all have judged Rick a little too fast... or did we?

This sunds more like Bipolar disorder (Manic episodes and/or depression. Mania can also present with increased self-esteem or grandiosity, racing thoughts, pressured speech that is difficult to interrupt). The most important risk of this illness is the risk of suicide. People who have bipolar disorder are also more likely to abuse alcohol or other substances. it colud have psychotic features. Just like Rick

Here's my theory on Rick's backstory in season 3 episode 1 beth did not die she lived and when the younger rick discovered the portal gun he went out searching for the person who killed his mate for twenty years then realizes that there are infinite universes so he goes back to the one that beth is in

Or beth did die and when he went in the portal he searched for a universe where he accepted the offer of the portal gun and beth did not die but there's one problem with this theory what happened to his mate

To be honest I have no idea

Here's a question I wanna know... Why do all members of the Smith family have pill-shaped heads, but Morty's is round...? Could it possibly because of his "mental disability" introduced at the start of Season 1? Who knows!
Leave me alone I know that I’m bad at this.
Honestly, I feel like Rick hates both Beth and Summer as they are so much alike to him. He’s proud of them but then he realises that he hates himself and they are so alike to him. Morty is closer in personality to Jerry and seeing as Rick has more respect and care for Morty, I feel that it shows that he also ( kind of) cares about Jerry.
However, I feel that In series 5 Morty is going to become much more alike to Rick and that the Evil Morty plot-line will finally finish off showing that Morty is becoming what Rick never wanted him to be; Rick.

The reason why summer is not on adventures is because she might become evil like evil morty. Evil morty was made by thinking he's better than rick and he doesn't need him but summer is more capable which means she would probably become evil.

No no, you messed it. The machine sucks out what you hate im yourself. And it seems Rick hates his attachment to Morty. That episode is pretty interesting. It shows us exacly what Rick hates in himself.

I'm pretty sure it's confirmed that Rick has Asperger's Syndrome. A very common characteristic of people who have AS is having above average intelligence but underdeveloped emotional intelligence. It is also very common for people with AS to have hyperfixations on subjects that interest them (trains, fantasy, SCIENCE, etc). Rick is unable to understand how his actions affect his family on an emotional level. He's a very smart man but lacks the ability to understand a person's emotions.

Something to tell to the comment section: not every person who can feel lonely/sad/complicated (which is literally everyone) is depressed. Depression is a very specific problem, please talk about it with a professional instead of saying catching phrases about this. You're making your friends worried.

I still believe his family actually died, and he jumped to another dimension where he himself had died (so he could take his place) but Beth is alive.
That’s why he “disappeared” for so many years; it’s when the Rick of the reality we follow was dead, before our Rick came from another dimension.
Our Rick is mourning the family he lost, while living with a replica of them.

Wait what if he showed the aliens Simple Rick’s origin story? Then he’d know EXACTLY what happened. Then it would totally be fabricated from someone else’s story, and he totally could’ve left that Beth when she was a child.

What if Beth is actually his wife, but he made her forget him and instead raised being an absent father. He had a kid with her, Morty, and spends all his free time with his son. While Beth finds an idiot, Jerry, who gives her summer. But actually...Jerry is the worst parts of Rick, expelled and implanted into a clone or creation. somehow summer inherits more of his intellect, and praises her more than Morty, yet keeps her at a distance and as far away from his "adventures" as possible because he wants to save her from the mental effects of personal loss and the strain of travelling through space and multiple dimensions.
