I've seen nothing to substantiate an allegation of having more than one facet. I make the same assumptions you do, based on the same evidence, I'm just reaching different conclusions. I think we have a problem of definition here, "multi-faceted" doesn't mean she's merely capable of changing her affect. I don't think she has a disorder of affect. If you present her with a puppy she'll coo, if you poke her with a stick she'll say ouch, etc. That's not different facets of her personality, but appropriate and normal behaviors depending on the stimulus. Most animals show the same types of behaviors, they nurture their young, show fear with predators and aggression with prey.Originally Posted by RealityLovesMe;3803098;
A multifaceted personality is one in which has depth and breadth, interests in various areas, the ability to function in many roles. I've always seen this as the ability to adapt well to many situations. For example a woman who is able to fill many roles well, to behave professionally in her career, to be intellectual in school, a mother able to meet her child's needs, a supportive spouse, a fun friend, a caring child her parents etc.
The only aspect shown of Vienna is her "fun" personality and her inability to get along with other women. I think it is a basic thing for someone especially a woman vying for a man's affections to be comfort him when he's that scared. That doesn't reflect any deep aspect of her personality, just her basic humanity. I'm sure she'd be horrified at what's going on in Haiti for example, but that's not evidence of a super caring person, just evidence that she's not a cold heartless monster.
I'm not that much older than you and I don't know where you're getting this "submissive" "traditional" woman thing from. I come from a culture in which that is seen as the feminine ideal and I can honestly tell you that very few of the female members of my family are submissive or afraid to express themselves. From my 96 year old grandmother to even the youngest of my cousins children, so I'm not sure where this generational disparity comes from either.
I study with those in your age cohort, and would be statistically included in it (unless you were specifying 23 year olds as your cohort) and I have to tell you that she is in no way representative of the women I know. Of course I have degrees, career ambitions and am studying for a profession, so perhaps my peers are of a different sort of cohort than Vienna all together. Vienna reminds me of the undergrads in the one of the other universities near my undergrad. Many of them showed up on our campus to party and hook up and seemed more interested in pursuing pre-med bachelors than their own bachelors degree in actual subjects that would enable a career of their own post graduation.
Vienna hasn't shown any thing other than pride in being "fun" and shallowness and an inability to interact well with her peers. So I stand by my assessment of her until I'm presented with something to challenge it. And good god, stop comparing her to yourself or your friends! You're able to string together coherent sentences that aren't dripping with drama and you seem to know words! That, in my book puts you head and shoulders above Vienna (and a few of my classmates, I'm sad to say :-d -- Texting isn't a language for heaven's sake!!!)
