Do you protect your family against all odds? Are you afraid to disappoint your parents because of how much you idolize them? Are you faced with difficult decisions because you are both immature yet responsible at the same time? If so, you should be proud to say you are like Jem Finch. Someone who used to think courage was being able to complete a dare or to be a good shot; but he soon learns from his father and the events around him that it is so much more than that. An example of Jem being responsible is when his friend Dill runs away from home to Jem’s house, Jem says “You oughta let your mother know where you are” and makes the difficult decision to involve Atticus. After that, Scout and Dill become mad with Jem but he knows what he did was right. Jem is a person that will make sure everyone is safe and sound.
Are you stubborn as heck yet still an insanely cute and innocent person? Do you find yourself to be very observant and constantly questioning the world around you? Are you unafraid of the stereotypes towards you and just continue to be who you are? Do any of these ring a bell? Scout hears countless times that she “needs to be more like a girl” but doesn’t let it get to her head and continues to act and dress the way she wants. Scout’s stubbornness is shown when she refuses to go to school because of her teacher who doesn’t like the fact that Scout is ahead of the rest of her class. Scout is very curious and asks tough, politically incorrect questions. Since she is young, she asks these out of complete innocence, not meaning to offend anyone. Scout is someone that would fight tooth and nail for you, literally!
Are you not afraid to tell a lie? Do you like taking risks all to be with and have fun with friends? Do you like to make up stories to impress others? Dill loves adventure. Doing things that make the hairs on his neck stand up is what he lives for. Being friends with Jem has probably kept him out of a lot of trouble. When he visits Scout and Jem in the summer, he always has a story to tell, whether they are true or not. Overall Dill is a fun and kind friend to have.
