Symptoms include a disregard for right and wrong, violating the rights of others, and a lack of empathy. The main indication that Nurse Ratchet has antisocial personality disorder is that she hurts others to achieve her means and does not feel any remorse about it. She plays people’s biggest weaknesses against them, like she always does with Billy. In the moments after Billy had sex and he was actually feeling confident, she brought up his mother so that she was able to control him; it was this mention of his mother that made Billy kill himself, yet Nurse Ratchet felt no remorse for her actions. Something else that she does that proves she has no idea of right and wrong is that when people do not do what she wants, she sends them to get electroshock therapy or lobotomies.
Consequently, they vocalized their opinions to Creon; making him short-tempered and depressed. He soon gave into peer pressure along with anger and introduced an alternative punishment for the two sisters. Creon said, “Oh, it is hard to give in! But it is worse to risk everything for stubborn pride.” Though he tried to make a change, in the end he was still unhappy because his wife and son died. Ismene would not be punished since she did not commit the crime and Antigone received banishment to a small cell as an alternative to death.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
I think this personally because she is selfish and is willing the tear apart a family just for her own happiness. I also think she causes most of the trouble. She is a very miserable character, and she isn’t afraid to make everyone else around her suffer also. She sets Mrs. Proctor up, and stabbed herself with a needle to make it look like Elizabeth was casting spells on her to get her in trouble when she is questioned about being a witch. She does this because her and John Proctor committed adultery and Abigail is still in love with John but he doesn’t feel the same way about her.
In conclusion, either way, both women are extremely a selfish human being, especially Abigail because she looks out for own need only. But as for Elizabeth, her character change from being cold to noble and sincere when Elizabeth began to help John Proctor into confessing; telling him to forgive him, and she won’t judge him. Author Miller explains that women can be selfish when it comes to love. Also, it illustrates how a small amount of women’s selfishness can hurt tons of people. All women just want to keep all the love, they don 't like sharing, honestly, whether the choice is right or wrong, it’s what make them happy and feel secure even selfishness kills everyone.
Another example is the letter addressed to the Crane family, “Didn’t you ever see an idiot child before? Some people just shouldn’t have children should they”? (4) This shows that she is envious of the family because they provide each other with company and they love each other, “ most infatuated young parents she had ever known”. Whereas Miss Strangeworth lives all alone. In short, these letters have proved that since she is jealous of her victims she tries to disrupt their way of living so she can feel superior.
They procreate up lies that the stepparent is beating them with a weapon or the siblings. The lies affect the happiness of the parents for the sake of they cannot be with the person they love. The lies do not affect the person telling the lie. When they lie, they do not know how the other person feels about the situation. The crucible can still happen today, thanks to teenage girls that still lie almost everyday of the year.
She is considered bad luck and maybe she feels helpless. I think that she thinks that Aunt Baba is the only one that cares about her and that she wants PLT to think that about her. Quote “As soon as I said this, I felt scared and wanted to back out, but Wu Chun-mei was already jumping up and down with glee.” Pg.98 & 99 Response I feel really bad for Adeline. She probably doesn’t want to show how weak towards Niang she is. She also doesn’t want her friends to suspect anything bad is going on at home.
“Being sick wasn’t the worst part,” Stephanie recalls a little bitterly. ”The worst part was not being able to do anything while the other kids got to play.” She didn’t get sad or down on herself when she had to stop pursuing her dreams of being a ballerina, she became angry. The more her sickness affected her, the harder she fought to get better. “I could have let being sick get me down and ruin my life, but that’s not how I want to live. I’m going to have a good life no matter how hard I have to fight for it.” Stephanie has Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.

So though her community may be acknowledging her good work, people can technically only forgive her in the silence of their own hearts, for in Puritan society, that letter will forever leave a mark of shame on her. However, as for Hester, even though people are seeing her more positively, the letter has taken away her beauty, charm, and passion, for now she is cold and always in a state of sadness. Basically, her humanity has been stripped from her because of this punishment. In this sense, the Puritan community thinks that the letter has done its job because Hester is doing good deeds for others. The letter itself did not make her want to help others, so she could care less about what people are thinking about her.
For example, when Remy and Dexter ended their relationship over her lies, Remy’s friend, Lisa tells her that she made a mistake and she noticed Remy was starting to fall in love with him . “Love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone 's bad qualities because they somehow complete you” (Dessen,248). Lisa tries to explain to Remy that love is important and necessary for people. It’s about having someone to be there for someone else through everything.
This quote shows how Scout is suffering from social injustice because she is being criticized for being who she really is. This proves that characters in the book suffer from social injustice because some think that there is something wrong in acting feminine, even as a girl. There are more times in the story that Jem treats Scout like this and she is getting mistreated by him. When Aunt Alexandra first comes to stay at the Finch’s house, Atticus tells Scout that she is there to show her some manners and teach her how to act how a young women should.
