Lindo Jong develops as a person when she decides to use her wit to escape her unpleasant marriage. For a while, Lindo almost loses herself by merely accepting the patriarchal ideals pushed onto her because she does not want to disgrace her family (Tan 54). Lindo blindly obliges to her family and the Huang’s wishes by being an obedient wife, but that made the “Huangs almost [wash] their thinking into [her] skin” (56) thus making her think in a certain way that hinders her own opinions and voice.
