Finny likes the rules if they are conducive to his personality. He frequently breaks the school rules because he can. Finny is so charismatic and engaging that teachers look the other way. Finny uses the breaking of these rules as part of his personality development. Rules, however, are an integral part to Finny's personality. finny has certain unwritten rules for friendship as well as keeping order in his seemingly chaotic world. Finny makes these rules and becomes agitated, even unraveling, when these rules are broken.
