Do you think Emma does think out of her tenderness of heart or out of duty,pity,social obligation or sometimes just to please Mr.Knightley?

In my opinion, Emma is a little too spoiled and much too used to having her own way. She feels as is she has the right to interfere in the lives of others..... she enjoys meddling and doesn't allow anyone to thwart her plans. Thus, I do not believe she works from the tenderness of her heart.... and I do not believe she is motivated by pity. Over the course of the novel, Emma does mature, as her relationship with Mr. Knightley proceeds. I do not see her attempting to please Mr. Knightley, as much as I see her viewing herself in his eyes.
