According to Gail Gross, the first born it typically the one in the family who is a high achiever, I would say that is me in a nutshell. I am always trying to one up standard. If in school we are supposed to make a volcano, mine is the one that is three foot tall and can spray lava with Mentos and create lava flows with baking soda and vinegar. I always want to be the best. The one when his project is seen get comments like “wow, that’s awesome!”
It also said that the first-born could be bossy and aggressive. I would completely agree with that. I am the one who can be easily aggressive. Bossy also sounds like me. When I think something over I have it planned out so it runs smoothly, but people always want it done their way. I would rather just instruct what to do and have it be done! It seems like if people would just use some common sense I wouldn’t be this way.
I also read in “ Birth Order Character Traits” by Teresa that as a first-born I am a “know it all”. Well, I would say this is true but not in the way most might think. When I think of a know-it-all I think of a person who believes they are never wrong walking arou...

- As I was watching the exploits of the female lead character, I cannot help myself become amused of how she lived her daily life. For many, simply looking at her actions will then give them an idea that she is not mentally sane. But then it is important to bear in mind that a person’s actions are not the sole basis of his mental health. According to Matsumoto and Juang (2008), the statistics of behavior, deviance, reliance on subjective distress reports and the ability of the individual to carry out his duties as a person are the things that must be looked into to determine a person’s well-being....

- Fleur Pillager 1 Character Analysis of Fleur Pillager Fleur Pillage is the most extraordinary character in this story. She is not only physically powerful, but also spiritually strong. She is strong willed and resolute to live her life as she wants to. She never listens to the town or tribal gossip about her and let it repress her. People pretty much stay out of her way because she is extremely diverse. They are too afraid to try to understand her or get to know her. Her life force is drawn from the milieu....

- Irawaddy, the daughter of Rukmani and Nathan in Nectar in a Sieve, is perhaps the most interesting of characters for me. As a child, she has to earn the affection and importance in the life of her father who instead yearned for a son to take over his occupation for him. Nonetheless, Nathan becomes loving and caring toward his eldest child even though an attempt for a son has not ceased. Irawaddy, who later becomes known as Ira, is a lively infant and often plays outside with her parents close by.... [tags: Family, Mother, Marriage, Father]

- Through the analysis of characteristics present within The Graduate this paper will express how it encompasses not only attributes from classical Hollywood cinema but also those of the Art film. These types of cinema have distinct and obvious styles and patterns that evoke different purposeful reactions independently, for instance the classical film tends to allow its viewer to understand completely what is happening throughout the film; this is archived by forming a logical plot, and applying repetition....

- Analysis of manifest destiny as depicted in Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy Violence has always been part of society. A cursory glance at the evolutionary periods to the classical ages up to the modern time shows that many breakthroughs were made after violent upheavals to either remedy the wrongs in society or to ensure survival of one group against the other. Such instances include the wars for territory where one group was faced by extinction if they didn’t rise up in arms such as the regular French-Germanic wars.... [tags: Literary Analysis ]

- The figure of the hero is something that is an integral part of all religions, mythologies, and literature throughout the world. No matter what, these heroes convey a strong sense of the mentality of humanity. In literature, the figure of the epic and tragic hero is brilliantly depicted specifically in both The Epic of Gilgamesh and Shakespeare’s Hamlet in a way that maintains relevance over time. According to Reference.com, an epic hero can be described as a “larger than life figure from a history or legend, usually favored by or even partially descended from deities, but aligned more closely with mortal figures in popular portrayals....

- Across the world, ordinary people find heroes that they aspire to imitate. Comic books portray heroes as super strong men in spandex suits, and although a three-year-old child might aspire to be superman, more mature audiences hopefully find more realistic figures to idolize. Take Barack Obama, the President of the United States; he worked his entire life to attain the highest position in our government, President. Obama was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth but to a single mother in Hawaii.... [tags: Character Analysis]

- ... His love for Yugao endowed him with some courage to take one last look at her despite all the obstacles and hesitations. Therefore, I think it was a brave move as it was not something normal he would dare to do for a woman. Genuineness for love was another character of Genji which is worth praising. Generally speaking, a man keeps several affairs with different women just for his own momentary pleasure, so all the nice gestures and sweet words at the beginning might be superficial genuineness in order to get the women’s heart....

- One Hundred Years of Solitude is the subjective “history” of the founding family of the town of Macondo. During its early years, the town is isolated the outside world, except for a few traveling gypsies who frequent the town, selling supposedly extraordinary new technologies like ice, telescopes, and “scientific advancements” and implanting ideas of alchemy into the head of the patriarch of the Buendía family, José Arcadio Buendía. A rather impulsive and inquisitive man, he is also deeply solitary, alienating himself from other men in his obsessive investigations into the science of alchemy, taking the last of his wife, Úrsula’s, inheritance in an attempt to create gold out of other more c...

- Hedda Gabler is a play with an undoubtedly interesting main character; Hedda herself. While she may have her faults, neurotic traits and undeniable issues it would be glaringly ignorant to ignore the fact that she is, above all a tragic victim. In order to properly showcase how Hedda falls somewhat perfectly into the mould of a tragic victim we must first figure out what exactly a tragic victim is. The most prominent and fitting description seems to come from the Greek philosopher Aristotle in his ‘Poetics’, while his definition is actually of a tragic hero instead of victim it is never the less still an extremely accurate definition and is still able to depict both victims and heroes equall...
