Can You Predict the Psychiatric Report?

Quite a few GTA 5 players believe that the Psychiatric Report is solely based on Micheal (primarily due to the inclusion of family and yoga). However, most fans believe that the complete Psychiatric Report considers all of the actions of the player rather than the character – thus compiling all of the character’s choices into one concise and comprehensive report.

All of the answers and their numerous variants can be linked with one or multiple characters in many cases, making it impossible to single out one character as a whole. Some players believe that it may even be possible to play the game with your specific future Psychiatric Report in mind.

Due to the fact that the Psychiatric report’s answers are based on the player’s performance and choice in many cases, some answers may be predictable – or, at least answers can be narrowed down based on how you play the game. Some of these answers can be influenced by the choices that players make as the game progresses, over and above the player’s efficiency in completing Story Mode.

According to an in-depth analysis made by user reoze on Reddit, it may be relatively easy to predict a good versus a bad answer in the final report. The general theory for each of the 15 areas of interest has been detailed below.

AnswerHow the Answer is Calculated
1Randomly generated “intro” string.
2The response may be generated based on the choice made in the final mission.
3The response may be generated based on how long each of the three characters was played, and which was played the most.
4Has the player spent more than 1 million, combined between all 3 characters?
5Has the player received 3 or more lap dances, or spent $100 or more in strip clubs?
6Have any of the characters used prostitute services?
7Is Michael on good terms with both Amanda and Jimmy?
8Has the player spent more than 120000 seconds in the stock market, and had success in the stock market?
9Has the player killed more than 100 innocents or pedestrians?
10Has the player stolen more than 100 vehicles?
11Has the player “completed” yoga?
12The response may consider whether all of the main characters have more than 50% in their Strength, Stamina, and Lung Capacity skills.
13Has the player completed more than 10 random events?
14The response may consider if the player completed collecting any of the following – Diving Scraps, Epsilon Tracts, Letter Scraps, Or Spaceship Parts.
15Randomly generated “end” string, possibly based on the previous answers.

Assessing the possible influences has provided many old-time players with some understanding and closure regarding the Psychiatric Report they received. These factors are definitely worth bearing in mind if you want to get the best possible answers within your next GTA 5 playthrough.

That’s everything there is to know about the Psychiatric Report given to players at the end of GTA 5, with images thanks to the GTA Wiki. Although these answers may seem to be random, there may be far more influence than many players expected – in fact, it may even be possible to have a new, strategic playthrough in order to get specific answers at the end of the game.
