The Ones Who Were Misunderstood People are often judged on what one sees and the whispers they hear. Very few people take the time to understand the misunderstood. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the author uses metaphors to give a simple phrase a deeper meaning. The title of the novel is a metaphor to show the innocence of the characters in this novel. A mockingbird never does anything wrong, they are calm souls, all they do is sing.
The Dove, Owl, Peacock, Eagle (D.O.P.E) test revealed that I have a dove personality. According to the D.O.P.E test, an individual with a dove personality, is generally peaceful, “people-orientated, loyal, friendly, hard-working and a great team player but tends to avoid change, confrontation, risk-taking and assertiveness.” I agree with this definition. I do not see myself as a confrontational person and many of my friends and acquaintances often describe me as friendly, being a hard worker and team player in any situation. The general strengths of a dove include being supportive, respectful, dependable, agreeable and willing to do what it takes to make things work.

He did indeed earn the treasure, but out of the goodness of his heart, Bilbo heroically gave up all of it and shared with the people in need (44). Not only was Bilbo generous, but also he was always determined to right. Bilbo always was sure to think through every decision he made to make sure he was doing the best for others and himself. He took into consideration the well being of others and not just what they thought about him (47). Bilbo showed his kindness not only by putting others first, but also through his loyalty.
One reason is because he was compassionate to others. In chapter 25 pages 321 and 322 Dill is telling Scout about how Atticus and Calpurnia went to tell Mrs. Hellen about the news of her husband Tom Robinson’s death. By showing compassion this would be one of the many ways Atticus ways respected. My second reason I believe he was an admirable person is because

Admirability is a quality that many strive to acquire, yet, most fail to achieve. Admirability is the ability to be admired or respected by others, even if they don’t necessarily agree with one’s point of view. In the classic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, a loving father named Atticus, earns respect from his children, Jem and Scout, and almost his entire community. Wisdom, compassion, and responsibility are just a few things that make Atticus an easily likable character. To begin with, Atticus gives great words of wisdom to Jem and Scout.
This is shown through the actions of Atticus both in and outside of the trial. Atticus tries his best to teach and show others-specifically Scout and Jem-how to judge what is right and what is wrong. First, Atticus tells Scout a very valuable life lesson. This is said when Scout was complaining to Atticus about her day at school, he said to her, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 30). Atticus is telling scout that she cannot truly judge someone's actions until she sees things from their side.
Theses writings were for personal use and despite their wishes were eventually published. Because of this, their writings showed true emotion and not that for entertainment or religious persuasion. Once released to the public their experiences were valued and passed on for generations to come. There was many simulates in the works of Anne Bradstreet and Mary Rowlandson’s describing signs from God to appreciate the nature, family and most importunely to put God first. Because of these signs and resulting tragedies, Anne Bradstreet and Mary Rowlandson had a very positive outlook on life and inspired many to follow and appreciate the simple things in life.

Throughout the novel “ To Kill a Mockingbird” Jem and Scout learn several life lessons from their many teachers. Scout Finch, one of the protagonists of Lee’s story, is taught to consider things from other people's perspective. Furthermore Jem learns about social classes and hypocrisy in the adult world. Finally Jem and Scout were both taught by Boo Radley that one cannot be judged and should not be judged by anything other than their actions.
Moral courage is shown in Atticus when he is risking himself for Tom Robinson and same with Malala when she is standing up for her right to go to school, this shows moral courage because they are not doing this for the attention they are doing this for the good of others. For instance, in To kill a Mockingbird when Scout is playing in the playground at school he asks, “ Do you defend niggers.” and Atticus replied, “ Of course I do..” (Lee 99). This quote shows taking risks for others is morally courageous because no one wanted to help a black man because they are at the bottom of the social class. However, Atticus didn’t care where Tom Robinson was in the social class he took this risk because he had hope and trust in Tom Robinson. For other reasons taking risks for the good of others is important since Atticus doesn't care what race you are he sees an
