Essay #1 Proposal
Fears and isolation
The existence of fear that is haunting the life of its possessor is a common problem in
society. Individuals are full of fear about their future and the wellbeing of those that they love. It
is uncommon to have a society where individuals are living in the absence of fear. The movie the
monsters is an illustration of the fear of human being possess when the lives of those they love
are in danger. Moreover, individuals are inclined to alienate from the people they love due to fear
of hurting them. Behaviors of an individual depict the type of a person. In the film, Kathy, a
drunkard, and abusive parents are worried about the safety of her daughter. Kathy is determined
to drive her daughter to the father’s place, away from her since she cares about her safety.
Understanding the influence of fear in our lives is essential to our wellbeing. This research
project will provide an overview of how fear is portrayed in the film and how it relates to our
lives. In addition, it will provide consequences associated with the feeling of fear as highlighted
in the film (Annas & Elias. Pp. 98-101)
The ability to control our fears is a growing topic. The contemporary society is chained in
a series of problems that invite fear, remorse, and regrets. Individuals have endangered their lives
MA 2
hoping to keep the lives of those that they love from the implication of their fears. Fighting our
problems is a challenging task. At times, people end up giving up and giving in for the issues
affecting them. The effect leads to living unfulfilled lives. In reference to the movie, Kathy must
fight the monster within herself.
What your research paper will add:
The research aims to answer the following questions.
What are the typical fears manifested in the film and exist in the current society?
How to classify the fears for easier understanding
What is the impact of fear in the lives of those surrounding us?
What are the ways to fight the fear?
Types of Research:
The chief research method is a critical review and analysis of the film ‘the monster’. The
study will first review and analyze the characters involved, their traits, background, and impact
on the film. Based on the roles identified, the study will evaluate the relation between the
characters activities and the hypothesis of the study. Next, the review will identify instances
where individuals portray fear, and the consequences of their actions. In the second stage of the
study, literature concerning the topic will be reviewed to provide different perspectives on the
topic. Using journals, academic sources, and websites as a source of data, the research will
evaluate the current practices and behavioral practices related to the topic.
The long-term goal of the research is to develop a clear and concise approach to the
management of fear. Managing our fears revolves around the process of identifying, classifying,
and defining ways to solve the problems in our lives. The objective of the current study is to
MA 3
provide a comprehensive review of the literature as well as practices relative to solving fears and
provide a framework for fear management. The following are sub-objectives of the research.
Provide a comprehensive review of the film and instances manifested by fear.
To develop methods of classifying fears for easier analysis, and understanding.
To review the current practices and activities in the society exhibited by fear.
Provide a framework to solve fears.
The outcomes of the study will be valuable to individuals struggling with addiction, fears,
and medical practitioners entitled to care for patients. The study will be an active tool for
healthcare professionals and the public (Phillips & John. P. 604).

experience are less likely to aspire to leadership than men, while competent women
with less work experience are more likely to aspire to leadership than men. The more

compared with men. For both, the less competent they think they are to be leaders, the
less they want to be leaders.
