He uses his intelligence to try and solve the problems on the island. He is first introduced to us as “shorter than the fair boy and very fat” (1). He has all the qualities of a leader: thoughtful, sensitive, intelligent, organized, a good listener, and many more. However, his physical appearance causes people to think
George has shifted from that scrawny guy who makes some insulting jokes now and again, to a cautious protector of Lennie, and Lennie has shifted from a childish buff guy who lacks intelligence to an anxious child-like man who wants to appear independent and reliable in the
This is where the difference is between “Harrison Bergeron” and Lebron James, or at least as far as we know for now. Harrison was held back because of the physical attributes that he possessed and Lebron is glorified for having similar physical attributes. Character is defined as the mental or moral qualities distinctive to an individual. We have no idea what the future may have been for Harrison but we do know what it could be for Lebron James
For the most part, Taft has stayed consistent with his younger self. For example, he had been a healthy, strong boy whose kindness was always evident. He eventually let his strongly-built body to become obese through inactive choices, and was often made fun of as a child. Taft also had a problem with procrastination. His father, Alphonso Taft, knew his son did not apply himself in school as well as he could have, and procrastinated.
• Chapter 6: R. Maynard Hutchins: Bringing “The Higher Learning to America, pg. 111-129 Robert Maynard Hutchins was described as being a very enthusiastic, charismatic, and persuasive leader. Despite his young age and limited experience, his youthful passion and potential shined through. I think this can relate to the idea of how age does not necessarily have a clear positive correlation with wisdom since young people can be wise and intelligent as well. 00oHe also thrived off of debating with other people and I think this quality alone can be considered either a good or bad thing.
The primary way in which Lancelot asserts his masculinity in Malory’s Le Morte D’Arthur is through his chivalric prowess. His prowess is incomparable, as any masculine display is too easy for Lancelot. Lancelot cannot be defeated, and in most cases his combat is not closely contested, because of his significant superiority. Although, size and brute strength do not, by themselves, make an ideal knight. Lancelot is also a handsome and modest man.
Ulysses was best known for his wisdom. He was a strong man, but he was more cunning than he was physically strong. Ulysses not having as much physical strength as wisdom did not prove much of an issue throughout the epic. He was a self-made and self-assured man who loved his family and his people. He shows leadership, strength, courage, and power on his journey to make it back
Frank Evans: Age 18. Frank is an intelligent young adolescent, with some knowledge in many subjects. He is brutally honest to the point in which some people think he is being mean, when it is nothing personal. He is very thick skinned and can be called almost anything without becoming angry except lazy, however even then he does not care that much about being called that either. People have called him wise beyond his years.
I am in agreement with Krakauer on the fact that Chris McCandless was not a sociopath because he was intelligent, socialized very well, and was able to take care of himself, but he did have his flaws. Being able to be independent, his achievements and his friends all prove the “outcast bush causality” stereotype wrong. Since Chris was a human, he did have his faults. In some cases they were extreme, but they were rooted from an anger that makes it hard to label as “sociopath”. In the end, however, his stubbornness and tendency to dream big left him for dead.
Nick has a much higher regard for Gatsby in the sense that he was a part of World War 1. He was not a rich man to begin with and he had a dream he wanted to achieve.

His birth name being Jay Gatz, Nick refers to Jay Gatsby as the Great Gatsby.
In the novel Of Mice & Men, by John Steinbeck, Lennie and George’s relationship is not the most quintessential friendship. Though in the first part of the story it is not said that Lennie has any social disabilities, you can pick up the characteristic. George has a way with words, which affects Lennieーbut only within that moment. Steinbeck portrays both these characters very vividly; although he does not just flat out make a list describing each man, he shows each personality and relationship they hold.
While you read the back cover of the book Of Mice and Men and reading the descriptions of the characters you are probably thinking, why in the world would a tough and tall man like Lennie stick with such a little man like George? Well while you read the book, Steinbeck shows us through Lennie’s actions that he isn’t the brightest man alive, he is almost like a ginormous teddy bear, he loves to pet animals and he never does anything mean on purpose. But those characteristics get him into serious trouble. But George on the other hand, he is more of the tough one. He helps Lennie not get into trouble and when Lennie does he helps him get out of it
