Lenina's Diary From 'A Brave New World'

Improved Essays
Rationale
I decided to write a diary from Lenina’s point of view, one of the main characters of A Brave New World, which takes place in a utopian society that is divided in five castes (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon). In this society people can’t have babies, families or feelings. Lenina belongs to the Beta’s caste which means that she is a shallow product of a materialistic society, but in her diary we can see her struggling against her caste.
On her diary Lenina wanted to be loved by John and to become a mother. I chose an informal tone due to the fact my target audience are teenagers and I want them to know from a different point of view Lenina’s hidden side.
I tried to use first person perspective since Lenina let us know how she

    ESFJs are capable of applying new material once they understand its details and nuances” (“Jung Typology” n.d.). This makes it challenging when another view is brought to my attention, but I don’t completely grasp the concept because of that lack of familiarity. Feeling With my passion for caring for mankind, it often results in me finding myself making decisions based on my feeling in the moment rather than thinking through the situation. I often feel the emotion of those I am around and find myself changing my mood in reaction to theirs. I do not like conflict and often find myself avoiding situations that can present one.…

    That is the big question. Many people realize they do not talk about the important things with their partners, but they do not know how to fix the problem. I believe it takes self-work to start talking about some of the things that happened to them. They must address that it is a problem and figure out how to fix it, otherwise it will stay buried and will continue being a problem. On the other hand, sometimes, the reason why people have bad communication is because they do not have enough confidence to say what they want and need.…

    I want to be able to share them, but I feel uncomfortable sharing because of my fear of being judged on my work. Not just grammatically or structurally, but meaning-ness and their debatable ideas. When it comes to trying to resolve them I just keep the rest of the story in the back of my mind. Yet I instead pull my hair out because I can’t finish work like…

    If someone if criticizing me on something I did wrong and I know I did it right, I have a hard time speaking up. A good leader needs to be assertive in order to show they can correct someone who is wrong and be listened to. • Courage: I think my issue with being assertive stems from my lack of courage. I have a hard time with things I am scared of. If I am up high, I try to make myself look down to show that I am okay, but other than that I stay away from things that terrify me.…

    A really big flaw of mine is, thinking of questions while people are talking to me. It’s good to have a sense of what you might say next but, I get lost in people’s conversations thinking. In a way, I also am an over thinker. Because when the person is done talking, I know exactly what to say. However, I think over think the idea of my question not being “good enough” or not “fitting” with what the person told me.…

    There was a time in my life I had to get help because I could not do it alone. In a section of the book about paranoia, Helmreich writes “It usually happens when they’re feelings insecure. You know you feel it when you think everyone’s against you but you realize it’s an exaggeration” (Helmreich 205). At my “what was I thinking moment” I thought the world was against me and I was trying to figure out what I did wrong to deserve it. I did not understand that it was just a test to make me stronger than I already am.…

    It is often found that people who use Projection as a defense use it to justify their feelings and reduce their anxiety. I think that this fits my personality because I am not a very trusting person, and because of this I think that people are not trustworthy. Because I do not make the best choices all the time, I assume that other people do the same thing, which can make me extremely paranoid when I believe that people 's actions mimic my worst thoughts. For instance, if I do something that my parents do not agree with, I will often justify my actions by listing times where my sister made the same mistake as me and did not get into the same amount of trouble. Although many psychologists do not believe in…

    This dirt could vary in meaning, but the emotional toll of this statement is mostly likely that he is not happy about what he has done. His use of anaphora for the words "I 've done" shows that he owns up to his actions, and want this person to understand he is truly sorry. Equally important, in the next line WasionKey mentions " I know my words, right now they don’t mean nothing." (10). The sentiment of this line gives the expression that he knows what he may have said in the past, but now he wants this person to forget those words and now understand what he has to say now.…
