** And sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. That said, part of this theory could apply to Tenma at least as far as sublimation of aggressive impulses is concerned. There’s a clue in Lunge’s speculation that Tenma has a split personality. While he clearly doesn’t, a certain character does: ''Grimmer''. This is one of many hints that Grimmer is meant to be [[ShadowArchetype what Tenma would have been like had he been sent to Kinderheim 511 as a child]]. If we analyze Tenma’s psyche from this perspective, then he doesn’t have a tendency to become an assassin or a serial killer as much as a tendency for emotional reactivity under stress that has the potential to manifest as raw, uncontrolled rage and violence. This capacity for aggression seems to be purely defensive and/or retaliatory in nature for both characters, as the experience of going Steiner disturbs Grimmer enough for him to dissociate and Tenma appears to have a mental block against killing that can only be bypassed when directly confronted with a life or death situation. Taking all that into account, Tenma’s choice to be a neurosurgeon ''is'' a socially acceptable means of expressing his aggressive impulses, but not in the way that’s typically conceived. Instead of stemming from guilt for having an unconscious desire to cut people up, his desire to save lives is an extension of his own survival instinct—he fights for his patients’ lives just as he would his own. But even with this interpretation, [[http://www.alternet.org/culture/10-careers-most-psychopaths Tenma still isn't exactly the most realistic surgeon]].

** And sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. But regardless if there's anything to this assertion or not, Tenma isn't exactly the most realistic neurosurgeon. In fact, [[http://www.alternet.org/culture/10-careers-most-psychopaths surgeons]] are believed to be more likely to possess psychopathic traits than the average person. Furthermore, doctors in general seem to have a higher resistance to stress according to [[http://publishing.rcseng.ac.uk/doi/full/10.1308/rcsbull.2015.331 one study]]. While he does show evidence of having a resilient psyche, agonizing over life and death the way Tenma does just isn't typical for an actual surgeon. The reality is closer to Lunge's assessment: calm and detached. If Tenma were a real life doctor, it would be unlikely for him to be in any surgical field simply due to his sensitivity. This idea does hold interesting implications for Franz Bonaparta, however, since he was also a neurosurgeon in addition to being a psychiatrist and a children's book author.
