The Great Gatsby

(Chapter 3) What leads Nick to think that there is another side to Jordan, one that is "incurably dishonest"? What do you make of her comment, "I hate careless people. That's why I like you"? (page 58)

Although Nick is attracted to Jordan, he has no illusions about her personality. Nick can see that Jordan is self-absorbed and manipulative. Jordan's statement shows her to be opinionated and entitled. She feels that she is better than most people.
