Sadly, Charles Wallace is considered the moronic outcast, due to the fact that he refuses to speak to his peers. He denied himself to talk to others, since the circular in school was exhaustively too effortless. Therefore others inferred that he was incapable of speaking to them, hence they refused interaction with Charles Wallace. While Calvin is reading Genesis to Charles Wallace, Meg along with Mrs. Murry, were discussing Charles Wallace’s differences while questioning if Charles Wallace’s differences were tangible or psychological. "Charles Wallace understands more than the rest of us doesn’t he?"
“There were a lot of Socs in that class. I get put into A class because I’m supposed to be smart” (Doc B) The Socs are now considered to be the outsider because they are never their true self. Ponyboy thinks “Socs were always behind a wall of aloofness, careful not to let their real selves show through.” (Doc C) The Socs can never be their true selves because of the stereotype they have about Socs. This makes them outsiders to real experience. Also when Ponyboy is talking to Cherry she doesn’t have to “keep her guard up” (Doc C) and doesn’t have to put a fake face on in front of him.
In sealand people are very forgiving of of the sins the people make and they do not care about deformities that some people might have. However the people of waknuk are not as forgiving.

After this statement had been said Joseph had beaten david very badly. On the other hand the people from the fringes are not forgiving of the people from waknuk because they were outcast from there.
Before Watson and John’s meeting, he never felt any negativity towards Watson, he was even finally relieved to be able to find someone to share the artistic value of Shakespeare’s language, but disdains Helmholtz’s laughter to both his cultural values and innermost feelings.

John’s feeling of apprehension ever since arriving at the World State from the Savage Reservations, makes him realize that he never could fit in with this society. Although happiness is the dominating force within the World State, John never finds himself truly happy.
This is so unique because Leo explains that, “You almost never get [an intense stare such as Stargirl’s] from people,” and this evidently surprised him. This tells us that people in his school prefer to stay fairly contained. I infer that they do not want to stand out that much, because if they did then they would stare at people similar to the way Stargirl did. But, because Leo says that you almost never get this stare from anyone, it shows us that no one in his school is daring to stand out, and that his school’s culture is very shy.
Jonas refuses to go to the annex room because he doesn't want any more memories of pain. Jonas has a long way of memories to go, there could be good ones and bad ones.In The Giver Lowry writes, ”he didn't want the memories, didn't want the honor, didn't want the wisdom, did not want the pain”.This shows us that Jonas doesn't care about any of the wisdom, and honor, he just want no more pain and memories.
Willa was very quiet at the beginning of the story but then tried to become friends with Wyatt at school. Wyatt was very antisocial and nobody would talk to him because they thought he was weird. For example the text explains, “Have a good -” Wrong. “Not interested,” he said. He swung his bag over his shoulder and walked away”(pg.34).
This is evidenced in Ichiro’s constantly wavering feelings towards his response to the loyalty oath. Ichiro goes back and forth between self-pity and self-loathing, but is not able to see his “no-no” in a positive light, as an act of protest. He does not even consider his actions as a call for social justice, having stood up to demand racial equality. Instead, he takes little credit and provides no justification for his actions. He presents his situation in isolation: his decision to resist the draft was his alone, without consultation or influence.

Because Reuven and Danny can’t talk, Reuven can’t be 100% convinced that Danny’s feelings about their friendship hadn’t changed. The silence is leered because it’s mean-spirited, even though Danny and Reuven don’t dislike each other. The fact that Danny won’t acknowledge Reuven makes Reuven very hurt, and Reuven begins to wish that Danny Saunders would go to hell. The silence
This all shows that Julian is a bully towards Jack Will and Auggie and that he’s not a good role model. Julian wouldn’t be someone to look up to because he does not feel remorse. An example is that Julian isn’t guilty for calling Auggie names or leaving the mean notes in his locker. Also, Julian thinks it’s actually funny when he makes fun of August and Jack Will. That shows that even though he knows that they feel terrible, Julian doesn’t apologize much less feel remorse.
