Elizabeth characterizes herself as a discerning judge of character. She finds the world to be a deceiving place so she trusts few people and thinks well of even fewer.

"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense."
