Pip, the main character of Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations goes through the most evident change in behavior as a result of money. First, toward the beginning of the novel we see the main character Pip’s desire to become a gentleman.
An example of Mrs. Joe’s beliefs is when she gives Pip tar water, “having a belief in its [tar water] virtues correspondent to its nastiness” (19). Mrs. Joe's belief that the “virtues” of the tar correspond “to its nastiness”, perfectly summarizes how she thinks Pip should be raised in a strict environment, because she thinks that if she is strict enough in other words, nasty, towards Pip, he will end up being a polite boy with many virtues. Pip, once again, can take two lessons away from this, one negative and one positive. One being that Pip will continue Mrs. Joe’s ideology of strict and harsh gets good results, and will be harsh to those around him and strict to those he has authority over. The other being that he will realize the ridiculousness of Mrs. Joe’s ideology, and will avoid being obtusely strict and harsh to people.
Making it very clear to him that they are different and, therefore, won’t get along with each other. Being barred from relationships based on differences was the biggest source of frustration for Pip before he received his great expectations.

He then has to face the fact that Estella does not love him and all the work he has put in to gain her attention, is only now to his advantage. This goes to show that people get so focused on impressing others and fitting in that they forget who they really are and what will result in the best outcome. In the novel, Pip realizes that he ended up alone and that the woman he believed to love never even liked him in return. Basically ended up being a sort of plot twist, where the audience was meant to realize how when they have too much ambition they forget what they had from the start. This lesson demonstrates how no matter what one should focus on the real meanings of life, and not material
