Recently, I পোষ্ট হয়েছে a প্রশ্ন asking অনুরাগী to তালিকা five personality traits most desirable in a ডিজনি princess. My traits poll, which was going to be the foundation of this article, was based on TheMusicalMolls' তালিকা of traits; the first response. I didn't bother to check my প্রশ্ন again for other responses, but when I returned to my প্রশ্ন after I পোষ্ট হয়েছে the poll, I was surprised to see that আরো অনুরাগী had bothered to answer my question. At that point, it was only a handful of people, and since I found their lists highly similar to TheMusicalMolls', I let it be. I hope I didn't insult anybody in doing this.
But then I returned to my প্রশ্ন this morning, because my নবীকৃত তথ্য ব্যক্ত that আরো people had answered my question. I was really astounded at the number of people who bothered to answer; I have to admit, being my pessimistic self, I wasn't expecting আরো than two অথবা three people to acknowledge my question.
So I switched gears. I'm going to base this প্রবন্ধ off the most commonly stated personality traits in the উত্তর to my question:
Kindness/ Compassion – 9 times
Plain, everyday kindness in ডিজনি princesses is truly important, and অনুরাগী realize that. I see so many অনুরাগী of the early DPs, whom I think are largely defined দ্বারা their kindness, in this club. It's lovely to see that. It's also part of being a ডিজনি princess to exercise compassion and help and protect those at a disadvantage - Snow White straightened up the dwarves' house because she believed they were orphans, and I প্রণয় her for that.
Bravery/Courage – 8 times
It's easy to see that we value courage in a DP both in ফ্যানপপ and in the outside world. Mulan, often at অথবা near the শীর্ষ of fans' DP rankings, not only saved China from the Huns, but voluntarily enlisted in the Chinese army knowing she could be killed, marking her as one of the most courageous ডিজনি princesses. Ariel and Rapunzel, who constantly have অনুরাগী supporting them, both found the courage to follow their dreams.
I was also surprised to see that Tiana seems to be gaining popularity, going off of my সাম্প্রতিক polls. On one, she is admired আরো than Mulan, and on the পছন্দ ডিজনি Princesses poll, she has outdone Mulan. Although she may not be the most outgoing অথবা sociable princess, people realize that it also takes courage when you're working to make your dreams come true, to keep going.
Selflessness - 6 times
It's also pretty evident that we value selflessness in ডিজনি Princesses. মুলান and Belle, two of the most জনপ্রিয় DPs, both give up something for their fathers' safety. And the কনভার্স also applies - we don't appreciate selfish ডিজনি Princesses. This is seen in the criticisms of Elsa, one of the least জনপ্রিয় DPs in Fanpop, and in the criticisms of Ariel, still a জনপ্রিয় DP.
Intelligence/ Common Sense – 5 times
It's pretty obvious that having a head on your shoulders is something অনুরাগী value highly. Mulan, one of the আরো জনপ্রিয় DPs in this club and often on the শীর্ষ of people's lists, has a very inventive and analytical mind, while Belle, whose literacy and level-headedness has been emphasized time and time again, remains beloved দ্বারা many.
Cheerfulness/Optimism – 4 times
The importance to অনুরাগী for a ডিজনি princess to uphold a positive, cheerful attitude is shown in many fans' প্রণয় for Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, Rapunzel, and Anna, to name a few. Both Snow White and সিন্ড্রেলা endured an abusive childhood, and get a lot of appreciation for this from অনুরাগী here. And Ariel, Rapunzel, and Anna have infectious cheer and bubbly personalities that charm everyone around them.
We all wish that we had a little আরো of these traits. The ডিজনি princesses just represent the people we could be and the lives we could live if we did.
