Recently, I पोस्टेड a सवाल asking प्रशंसकों to सूची five personality traits most desirable in a डिज़्नी princess. My traits poll, which was going to be the foundation of this article, was based on TheMusicalMolls' सूची of traits; the first response. I didn't bother to check my सवाल again for other responses, but when I returned to my सवाल after I पोस्टेड the poll, I was surprised to see that और प्रशंसकों 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 सवाल this morning, because my अपडेट्स कहा that और 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 और than two या three people to acknowledge my question.
So I switched gears. I'm going to base this लेख off the most commonly stated personality traits in the जवाब to my question:
Kindness/ Compassion – 9 times
Plain, everyday kindness in डिज़्नी princesses is truly important, and प्रशंसकों realize that. I see so many प्रशंसकों of the early DPs, whom I think are largely defined द्वारा their kindness, in this club. It's lovely to see that. It's also part of being a डिज़्नी 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 प्यार her for that.
Bravery/Courage – 8 times
It's easy to see that we value courage in a DP both in फैन्पॉप and in the outside world. Mulan, often at या near the चोटी, शीर्ष 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 डिज़्नी princesses. Ariel and Rapunzel, who constantly have प्रशंसकों 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 हाल का polls. On one, she is admired और than Mulan, and on the प्रिय डिज़्नी Princesses poll, she has outdone Mulan. Although she may not be the most outgoing या 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 डिज़्नी Princesses. मूलन and Belle, two of the most लोकप्रिय DPs, both give up something for their fathers' safety. And the कॉनवर्स also applies - we don't appreciate selfish डिज़्नी Princesses. This is seen in the criticisms of Elsa, one of the least लोकप्रिय DPs in Fanpop, and in the criticisms of Ariel, still a लोकप्रिय DP.
Intelligence/ Common Sense – 5 times
It's pretty obvious that having a head on your shoulders is something प्रशंसकों value highly. Mulan, one of the और लोकप्रिय DPs in this club and often on the चोटी, शीर्ष 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 द्वारा many.
Cheerfulness/Optimism – 4 times
The importance to प्रशंसकों for a डिज़्नी princess to uphold a positive, cheerful attitude is shown in many fans' प्यार for Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel, Rapunzel, and Anna, to name a few. Both Snow White and सिंडरेला endured an abusive childhood, and get a lot of appreciation for this from प्रशंसकों 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 और of these traits. The डिज़्नी princesses just represent the people we could be and the lives we could live if we did.
