Lennie has the mental capability of a 6 year old. This limits most every part of his life. Lennie's strengths include a fierce sense of loyalty to George, a strong work ethic if the job is simple enough and he is strong enough to do the work of two men on the ranch. Lennie's weaknesses make it difficult for him to have social contact outside of George. He misreads social cues which get him into trouble.

Lennie's strengths have something to do with his physical strength. His weaknesses are that he knows no limits, he is mentally handicapped and he doesn't work well with interacting with others.
