O suicídio de Robin Williams não é tão chocante como você pode pensar : Por que certas pessoas são mais propensas para uma depressão severa do que outras (em especial as mais inteligentes e talentosas)
Robin Williams' Suicide Isn't As Shocking As You May Think: Why Certain People Are More Prone To Severe Depression Than Others

Comedic genius and Academy Award-winning actor Robin
Williams was found dead at his Northern California home on Monday as a result
of what the Marin County’s coroner’s office is calling “suicide due to asphyxia.” Friends, family, fellow
celebrities, and even President Barack Obama have all expressed their
sympathies over the loss of such a well-respected member of the Hollywood
community, and some have even broached shock over his untimely death, but it
could be that Williams’ tragic end was written in his personality.
“This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend,
while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human
beings," Williams’ wife Susan Schneider said in a statement. "I am
utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy
during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the
focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter
he gave to millions.”
From the outside looking in, it would appear Williams was
leading a life free from worry. Having starred in countless hit movies,
including Good Morning Vietnam,Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire,
and Good Will Hunting (for which he won his 1997 Oscar
for Best Supporting Actor), Williams has amassed a Hollywood filmography
without equal. So what could have brought a renounced celebrity icon like
Williams to such an emotional state that he felt it necessary to take his own
Williams, whose battle with addiction has been publicized
since the 1980s, wasrecently admitted into Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center in Lindstrom, Minn., to
continue his commitment to sobriety. He had previously entered rehab in 2006 to
be treated for alcoholism after being 20 years free from cocaine and alcohol
addiction. Williams said his falling off of the wagon was “very gradual,” so it
would seem his most recent stint in rehab was an attempt to ensure that his
sobriety stayed the course.
Williams’ commitment to strengthening his sobriety
suggests he was also intent on living a long and healthy life, but apparently
something went wrong after his time in rehab this past June.
his representative Mara Buxbaum, Williams had been “battling severe depression of late,” but evidence
suggests the writing was on the wall well before his death. Williams’ ability
to perform without a script, whether it be his standup comedy or unscripted
acting style, may have been a tell-tale sign of manic depression.
A recent study conducted by researchers from Oxford University and Berkshire
Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust suggested that a comedian’s skill for making
people laugh is founded in a personality similar to people suffering from
schizophrenia and depression. The research team even goes so far as to say
making people laugh is a form of self-medication for many comedians battling
depression. The so-called “sad clown” façade exhibited by comedians such as
Williams may be caused by high levels of psychotic personality traits. It could
be that the very thing Williams built his impressive career on was also what
led to his unfortunate demise.
Em que destaco a parte mais importante deste artigo
que traduzi prá vocês : A recent study conducted by researchers from Oxford

recente realizado por pesquisadores da Universidade de Oxford e Berkshire
Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust sugeriu que a habilidade do comediante para
fazer as pessoas rirem é fundada numa personalidade semelhante 'a das pessoas
que sofrem de esquizofrenia e depressão. A equipe de investigação nem chega tão
longe ao considerar que fazer as pessoas rirem é uma forma de automedicação
para muitos comediantes lutando contra a depressão. A fachada do chamado
"triste palhaço" exibida por comediantes como Williams pode ser
causada por níveis elevados de traços de personalidade psicótica. Pode ser que
a coisa (qualidade) mais impressionante que construiiu a carreira impresionante
de Williams também foi o que levou a sua morte infeliz.
