In this short scene, Malcom shows up to Angela’s house unannounced, acts like he is the boss of her, and proceeds to yell and curse at her. He knows how Angela will respond to this because he has been with her for 22 years. Malcom has a high dominance, so naturally his personality will prevail over Angela’s. Based off of this interaction, it appears that Angela is possibly afraid of Malcom, which is why she broke up with him over the phone and not in person. Due to Angela’s reflective personality, she will naturally “control emotional expression” (Manning 83), meaning she will not display her feelings openly.

Throughout her time in Adam’s Rib, Angela receives all kind of love; from her people, from her land, but a piece of that love was from her mother and Angela begins to realize
Sheila is definitely the most curious character after the inspector. Sheila seems to be very inquisitive, especially about wondering what Gerald’s part in the story is. What is weird about Sheila though is that when she finds out about Gerald’s affair she does not stay angry, instead she says how she respects his honesty by saying “I don’t dislike you as I did half an hour ago, Gerald. In fact, in some odd way, I rather respect you more than I’ve ever done before”. This quote is said by Sheila after Gerald has been questioned about his affair with Eva Smith.
Abigail employs strategies of emotionally charged words and phrases that only a mother can say to her son. In her letter she opens the letter with the phrase, “MY DEAR SON”.

she writes letters to civilians who Adela thinks are "wicked" and because she is the oldest person in town, she feels obligated to protect it (Jackson 226). Jackson writes about Adela's twisted thinking be writing "as long as evil existed in the world it was miss Strangeworth's duty to keep her town alert" (Jackson 226). Another action of Adela that reveals something about her character is her obsessiveness over her rose garden.

By adopting phrases like “my mother” and “I turned nine” she displays that it’s her perspective when she nastily describes Celia, using adjectives such as “bland and stupid and fruitlike.” Huggan takes advantage of this first person viewpoint to give her readers a better apprehension of Elizabeth and her reasoning behind her decisions.
