Lately, there has been some discussion on here about princesses and their personalities- specifically whether certain princesses have personalities or whether they have sufficiently rounded personalities. I thought it would be a good idea to actually look at the personalities and the different dimensions to them to get a clearer picture of just how well-developed the princesses are as characters. This is not an artikulo about whether the princess is introverted or extroverted or personality type (I’ll leave that to LightningRed,) but the personality traits of the princesses. I will be looking at positive traits, negative traits, neutral traits, and traits that can go either way depending on the situation (for the sake of convenience, I will be referring to these as “border traits”) for each of the princesses.
I know, you’re all going to be mad because I’m treating them as one character, but ultimately I just decided to divide up the artikulo sa pamamagitan ng time period (mostly) because… well, you’ll see how long these get.
The classic princesses are much madami idealized characters than are common in much of any movie/ book/ general story today, where having an abundance of flaws is actually considered a good thing (and not just for the sake of character development.) Interestingly, these older characters are belittled for not having flaws and being “unrealistic,” but a lot of the “kick-butt” characters of today are just as idealized (or, at least, you can tell the may-akda wasn’t thinking of flaws while Pagsulat the characters *cough, cough* Katniss Everdeen *cough, cough*) but since they are “tough,” no one cares. Anyway, the princesses of the classic era were clearly written with a perfect woman in mind. And while they do still have flaws (as any good character should,) they were definitely made to be madami perfection-oriented than realism-oriented.

Snow White
Snow White is a very good example of the idealized princess, despite the fact the she is actually a very well-rounded character. The only thing she might be lacking in is flaws, but I personally think she makes up for it with a wide variety of border traits which are positives that can act as a negative because of the extremity of the presence of that trait in her personality.

Positives: Snow White is kind to everyone she meets, of course. She never has any hard feelings against anybody, not even reyna Grimhilde. She helps the dwarfs, and she is determined it will only take some kindness to break Grumpy’s hardness- and what do you know, she was right! Snow White is optimistic and always sees the good side of everything. She believes that everything is going to be alright and she won’t do anything to contradict it. She is hard-working. Snow makes herself useful even after being sent away. She uses her talents of cooking and cleaning (things she had mastered and the dwarfs hadn’t) to repay them for their kindness (honestly, that makes much madami sense than her working in the mines, her only real other option- the dwarfs were already skilled in that and had madami than enough workers, so why shouldn’t she offer her unique skills? Done ranting.)

Negatives: Snow White is bossy. She comes to the dwarfs’ house and tells them what they have to do and the orders they have to follow to eat. She intrudes on their territory and then tells them what they have to do. Snow White can also be very passive. She needs the huntsman to tell her to run away when the reyna is going to kill her. She has to be told to run away! Snow is also very naïve. This goes with her optimism, but Snow White really doesn’t understand anything about the world. She doesn’t take any precautions and believes everything will be alright even if she is in a dangerous situation with no protection.

Neutral: Snow White is hopelessly romantic. She knows in her puso that the Prince is going to be coming back for her. She has a mind for business. This goes with her bossiness, but she also runs a tight shift and never lets anything go without passing her standards.

Border: Snow White has a lot of border traits. She always believes there is good in people. This is good when she is dealing with Grumpy and is kind to him, but she also lets herself be, um, killed. She is also very innocent. This is part of the reason all the dwarfs, the prince, and even the huntsman fall under her spell. However, it can also be a disadvantage to her because others use it against her. The reyna uses her innocence against her in her attempts to kill her. It’s not the same as naivety, naivety is madami being gullible while innocence is madami purity and positivity. Also, part of the reason the reyna wants to kill her is because of how much everyone (the prince specifically) loves her, in addition to her beauty, and people pag-ibig her so much because of her purity and innocence. Snow White is cheerful- very cheerful. This is a huge positive for her in many ways. It is a good thing because she doesn’t do anything with the assumption that anything will turn out badly, and she goes into every situation treating it as if it will have a positive outcome. This serves her well because she never does anything halfway, she goes all out for the best possible outcome. However, a certain degree of pessimism is a good thing. If a person has absolutely no pessimism, they won’t be able to look at things in a realistic manner. Ultimately, the world is not a perfect place, and so if you can’t see anything bad in the possible outcome, you’re setting yourself up for disappointment.

Cinderella
Sinderella is the most realistic of the classic princesses. She is optimistic and doesn’t give up, but at the same time you can tell she really has strong dislike for Lady Tremaine. You can tell she resents the obstacles. Walt sinabi Sinderella was his paborito fairytale because he could relate to Cinderella’s struggles before he got his big break, so I’m sure that’s where she got some of her resentment and why she is so realistic. Sinderella has a lot madami gray area to her personality and decisions than, certainly Snow White, and either of the other classics.

Positives: Sinderella is optimistic. She never gives up hope and is always determined that the dream that she wishes will come true. She is emotionally strong beyond comparison, able to hold up under abuse for years. Sinderella is basically kind. She has to help those in trouble, even though she is in such a low situation herself. Sinderella is selfless. It would be easy for her to wallow in her own self-pity and ignore the plight of others, but Sinderella always helps those less fortunate than even herself. Sinderella is also assertive, able to stand up against Tremaine, ipinapakita that she isn’t going to let herself be walked all over and still has self-respect. She is dignified in the way she treats those abusing her, she never sinks to their level. There’s a difference between having dignity and class and being a doormat or pushover, something Cinderella’s often accused of. Sinderella also has a lot of foresight and understands that it will be better in the long run for her to stay with the Tremaines for the time being, and she has the patience to wait out the time.

Negatives: Sinderella is mapait and truly resentful. You can clearly see her anger she holds against Lady Tremaine. She almost takes it out on Lucifer when he ruins her cleaning, she would have if the kampanilya hadn’t rung right then. She has a chip on her shoulder and knows how to hold a grudge. You can also see the pleasure Sinderella has when she pulls out the shoe in front of Lady Tremaine. Sinderella wants revenge and is vindictive. She is truly happy that she ruined Lady Tremaine’s plan to keep her out of the castle. She is aggressive and passive-aggressive. Again, Sinderella almost takes out her anger on Lucifer. Sinderella makes fun of Anastasia and Drizella’s musical ability when they can’t hear her. Unlike Snow, the abuse Sinderella has been subjected to has actually effected and taken a toll on her. Sinderella can also make a martyr of herself. Contradicting her compassion for others and optimism (and hey, don’t all of us have traits that would seem self-contradictory?) when Sinderella is in a low moment, she lets herself be sorry for herself and just gets angry and generally disappointed instead of really trying to do something about it. Sinderella could have just screamed her head of when the duke was there, but instead she cried and almost let him go without her opportunity. While I’m not saying she really wanted to stay, she was sorry for herself and didn’t really do everything in her power. Wow, I wrote a lot for Cinderella’s negatives. I promise, I’m not hating on her, just trying to ipakita how realistic she is, since most people tend to overlook that and make it seem like she’s just this inhuman example of perfection.

Neutral: Sinderella is dreamy. She makes dreams and hopes for herself and takes happiness in her dreams. Sinderella is also realistic. Seemingly against her optimism and dreamy nature, Sinderella can see the grit of the situation and the grim possibility. An example of this is when Sinderella doesn’t have time to make her dress (though why she didn’t just go in the dress as it was, ignoring fashion of the day, I don’t know.) Sinderella tries to tell herself that she isn’t really missing out (optimism,) but, opposed to Snow White, she also realizes that there is no apparent way she can go (realism.) Sinderella is also opportunistic. She took the chances she had to try and free herself. This is another trait that would seem to contradict a previously mentioned aspect of her personality (self-pity.) When the order came, Sinderella reminded Tremaine that she was an unmarried woman of the country and therefore ordered to come. Sinderella kept the slipper on her at all times and pulled it out when the duke was not there (though she could have gone back to the kastilyo with the other shoe, though that could raise suspicions I suppose.) Ultimately, all the times I am pointing out flaws in Cinderella’s logic is just another example of how Sinderella is a realistic character.

Border: Sinderella has less border traits than Snow White. However, she also has madami definitive flaws than Snow White does. One border trait of Sinderella is her patience. While this can work to her advantage because she ends up having a much better end situation than she would have had she ibingiay up and left, this also does cause her to be madami passive than she needs to be and not stand up for herself in many situations. Another border trait is her tendency to stuff her feelings and not express them. Unlike most border traits, this is madami commonly a negative trait than a positive trait. While this is bad because it causes her to be mapait and resentful in her situation and she has a lot of pent-up anger, this also serves her well because it stops her from making any rash moves that would cause her to be in even madami trouble and make her life even madami difficult.

Aurora
I might venture to say Aurora is the most idealized of the princesses. And while she is very idealized, Aurora still has plenty to round out her character and most certainly does have a developed personality. I, like so many others, really wish we got to see madami of it in the movie, because Aurora really does have the makings of a truly compelling character had she had madami fleshing-out. However, I still pag-ibig her the way she is, and she’s still a great character.

Positives: Aurora is kind to others, no matter who they are. She was always kind and respectful to the mga engkanto and she was nice to the mga hayop in the forest. Of course, Aurora, while at first unnerved (and come on, who wouldn’t be?) was welcoming to Phillip. Another strong sign of her kindness is the way she acts when she first meets her parents and Phillip’s father. Even after they have created this plot for her that has ended up hurting her so much, she still rushes to her mother’s arms and embraces her. She kisses Phillip’s father. Aurora is just kind. Aurora is also cautious. Really, she is. Now, before you go all “don’t talk to strangers” on me, she didn’t just immediately run off with him. She made sure it was the man from her dreams before finishing her song with him. And before you get all up in arms about that, it was a fairytale, things work differently. And even after Aurora knows it is the man from her dreams, she arranges for him to meet her at her house. If Phillip were to end up being anything other than a gentleman, what safer place for Aurora to be when that was revealed than at her than on her territory with three other women there to protect and defend her. Aurora is poised and can handle anything that is thrown at her. Aurora is emotionally tough and selfless, and respectful and obedient to the fairies. Even after it is revealed to her that her entire life has been one big illusion planned sa pamamagitan ng those supposed to be the closest people in the world to her, she picks up the pieces enough to go back and take responsibility for her people. She gives up a life with her dream prince to lead her people. You can’t ask for madami in a ruler. Aurora has the makings to be a great queen.

Negatives: Aurora can be spineless. Going along with her obedience and respect, Aurora can sometimes not speak for herself even when it would benefit her. She really is madami complex than she appears. There is madami than one side to her pagganap on her decisions. On the one hand, she is being selfless and dutiful, on the other, she is being spineless. Aurora can also be awkward when she first meets someone. Despite the grace and elegance that is so often sinabi the only thing anyone can say about her, and in direct contrast to her poised demeanor, Aurora is not really sure how to handle certain situations. When she first meets Phillip, she doesn’t know whether she wants to stay or whether she wants to go, and she’s not really sure how to handle either decision. Going along with this, Aurora is indecisive. She doesn’t know what to do about Phillip, and changes her mind when he asks when he can see her again. Aurora doesn’t know how to make decisions she can stick with. Aurora can have a tendency, like Cinderella, to be self-pitying. When she went back to the castle, while she was dignified, she still was simply devastated to be there.

Neutral: Aurora is very philosophical. She creates a metaphor between her life and the birds while she is in the forest. She observes patterns of behavior in the way those around her live and she wonders if there can somehow be a connection between that and the way she lives her life. I sinabi in my house sorting artikulo that I thought Aurora was a Ravenclaw, no in the traditional scholarly academic sense, but as an abstract, creative thinker. Aurora is imaginative and creative. She plays along with the mga hayop and has created a world of fantasy. Aurora is a hopeless romantic. She dreams of her prince, and sure as the sky is blue, the dream will come true. She knows immediately that the man she meets in the forest is the man for her for life. Aurora is also regal and elegant. She has a royal air about her and a royal attitude to life. That is also part of why she goes back, royalty is such a part of who she is that she can’t turn her back on those who need her.

Border: Aurora is dreamy. Aurora is very imaginative and has many abstract mentalities. However, this can also cause Aurora not to be grounded in reality. Much like Snow White’s cheerfulness, Aurora can be setting herself up for disappointment, and she does when she is brought back to inevitable reality after she is told she is a princess and must serve her people and marry and man she does not love. Aurora also is very open with her emotions and lets her puso rule her head. This is usually a neutral trait, and can serve her well because others are easier to have a relationship with her. However, this can cause her to overreact and be self-pitying. I had another border trait for her, but I can’t remember it right now, if I do remember it I’ll add it. However, I do believe I have shown that Aurora certainly has a personality, and a well-developed one at that. Many times, madami than one aspect of Aurora’s personality is behind her decision, and as many times, if not more, one trait influences another that are bother behind her decision. Ultimately, I don’t understand where anyone gets that ides that any princess doesn’t have a personality, or even a rounded, developed one.

An enormous thanks to the biggest and best Elsa tagahanga I know, link from tumblr, who did most of the work when I asked her for ideas on who Elsa would like best (I used much of her own words, so most credit to her, but paraphrased as much as I dared). She has a better understanding of Elsa's character than anyone I've known. Thanks to everyone else who gave me their ideas as well!

Elsa's tuktok and bottom princesses were relatively easy to guess without help, but I had a lot of difficulty with the middle ones, because parts of Elsa's personality we don't get to see, just the obvious things like valuing...

Bonjour! I think it's time to talk about Disney music, for you music mga manliligaw and you Disney mga manliligaw and you Disney music lovers. (And I'm sure there are heaps of you out there). This is very simple, I'm just stating one song from each movie and why I think it's the best one of that movie. The only particular order this listahan is in is from oldest movie to newest movie - this isn't a countdown. This is also entirely my opinion - no influence from other people.
So let's begin.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
"With a smile and a song", sa pamamagitan ng Snow White

Elsa, is my paborito DP currently and I thought of ipinapakita my opinions about her.

We first meet Elsa when she is sleeping and Anna wakes her because "the sky is awake" and they have to play.
She first hesitates and tells her to play sa pamamagitan ng herself but when her sister asks her to build a snowman she can't resist.
This part shows Elsa's personality before being isolated. We can see that she is the elder sister and tends to act madami mature and calm, but she enjoys being with her sister and shows her playful side.
And we can also see that she isn't afraid of her powers and likes to use them.
 "Shshshsh!!! Anna, can't you stay calm for a minute?"
"Shshshsh!!!...
