"'I just want to thank you for being such a goddamn prince, that's all,' I said. I said it in this very sincere voice"(66). Holden says what's on his mind, constantly showing his lack of a filter and no consistent conversations. But he tries to remain sincere with certain people.
"For Chrissake, grow up"(29).
"Mother darling, give me your hand. Why won't you give me your hand?"(29).
"I said I enjoyed talking to them a lot, too. I meant it, too. I'd have enjoyed it even more though, I think, if I hadn't been sort of afraid, the whole time I was talking to the, that they'd all of a sudden try to find out if I was a catholic"(146). To me this quote shows an example of Holden's introvert/extrovert personality alongside his GAD. He clearly enjoys talking to people, but then he worries about a million scenerios on what could've happened if he did this or that.
"Wise guy[Holden]. Someday somebody's gonna bash your-"(66). Clearly, not everyone is so tolerant of his haughty behavior. His fight with Stradlater was exactly what happened to Holden because of his bad mouth before his conversation with Ackley.
"I don't give a damn, except that I get bored sometimes when people tell me to act my age. Sometimes I act a lot older than I am..."(13). Whether Holden purposefully acts older than his real age or not, it's a tad bit hypocritical of him. He despises people that are phonies yet he lies about his character to himself and other people.
"It's really ironical, because I'm six foot two and a half and I have grey hair"(13).
