-Psychologist say, in layman terms, that children who reach the age of six will have the ability to really grasp the reality of their environment. (family, friends, people of importance, etc) so when something happens to that reality, they tend to feel it even more than before because they can understand it. Ergo, when Sasuke's family was brutally slaughtered by his brother, he took in this information to full effect.

-Uchiha Itachi is a family member that Sasuke loved probably more than his own mother and father. A bit of a brother complex, if you will. So when you have the person who influences a great portion of your being kill other people you love and then have the gall to further influence a mere child to hate, detest, to survive in an unsightly way and run to cling to your life, all of that to achieve the purpose of killing whom you loved so much, that child will most likely do as told.

-Uchiha Sasuke grew with this aforementioned philosophy for three years running until he had a greater, closer contact with Uzumaki Naruto

-Orochimaru, wisely exploits the dark corners of Sasuke's heart because he even states it himself that Naruto was filling Sasuke with things that should not be there in his opinion: love, frendship and maybe even the joy of simply living --which by the way, are things contrary to what Itachi had told his little brother

-As if things didn't make anythings worse, Itachi returns to the village, only to torture the boy further, virtually re-enlisting Sasuke to his old, dark road. This leads to Sasuke to give himself a self-examination and realize he is still too weak.

-Sasuke's decision to leave the village to obtain power is, on a purely analytical level, not surprising. Itachi, being someone who was closer to Sasuke for a much longer period of time than Naruto, has far more influential power than the blond boy in question. In addition, Sasuke has feelings of inferiority as he watches Naruto, a used to be dead last, grow almost to his equal. From an onlooker's poit of view, this appears to be ridiculous but lets not forget that Sasuke has been brought into an household where he is constantly compared to abother person of greater power.

-Once again, the influential power that Itachi has manifest itself when Sasuke intends on killing Naruto in order to obtain "the eyes" that Itachi mentions. Naruto's saving grace is at the after the final chidori vs rasengan struggle, when (inserting speculation) Sasuke does not finish him off due to the bonds that both shared.

An easy to hate character? perhaps but only when one has not lived the tragedy that is Uchiha Sasuke

Continuing part 2 later.

Yup, I always thought Sasuke should be analyzed in a psychological way instead of just being pointed at and hated. I mean, the guy needs therapy (I think I already said that before) He needs to find a way to finally break free from the pain that's been haunting him for so long. It's so easy to say he's going the wrong way but we have to consider he's experienced a great deal of psychological violence ever since he was a kid.

Keep going, man, this is good

I agree with everything you said and I do sympathize with the kid(lol character?) but I don't really feel anything towards him as a character ha ha. Meaning I can sympathize yet not empathize with him so it's hard for me to like him. I like Itachi more(maybe because I'm an older sibling too?)

itachi really hasnt had the perfect life either, he was only four years old when he watched people around him being killed in cold blood and he still didnt turn out as screwed up as sasuke is, even for all his done.

True, Itachi isnt as screwed up as Sasuke but you can't compare his experience with his brother. Itachi gave Sasuke a virtual 72 hours of torture, replaying over and over the massacre of the Uchiha clan, which included his own family. Point is, is that Sasuke was betrayed by the person he loved the most, whereas Itachi was mentally damaged by the cruelty of war(which I should point out his clan was there to back him up).

If Naruto does not stop Sasuke, he will probably kill and kill until nobody close to him is alive anymore. After that, he would descend into darkness and regret what he has done for the rest of his life, just like what Kakashi predicted.

Sasuke has much of traumas,
when madara started to tell him about Itachi,
Sasuke started almost cry.
I hope that Naruto can broke his mental barrier.
