Abstract: 

Psychology and its branches are means that can be used to study many behaviors of man in the passage of history. With the help of this science, it can be known the hidden corners of characters and their individual psychology can be theorized. The present article attempts to analyze the look and feel of two famous heroes of Shahnameh, Rostam and Esfandyar, based on psychological analysis. Both characters are heroes that have been equipped with extraordinary powers to fight with nature and various natural forces. According to Adler, the formation of these myths is a kind of compensation for inferiority against compulsion of nature and environment, and overcoming natural and environmental barriers by these two heroes confirms the theory of Adler. Also, in the process of evolution of myth of hero, Paul Radin distinguishes four periods. Based on his ideas, the myth of Rostam and Esfandyar can be called the evolution of “twins cycle”. Another issue is the tragic end of Esfandyar that indicates his lack of affection from his father and family. According to Shahnameh, this complex (lack of affection) leads him to death.
