The novel Animal Farm, by George Orwell, exhibited talented characters who exploited .
their power to out smart the other animals on the farm. No single animal portrayed similar traits .
to me. However a combination of two do. The two animals that I would select that contain .
similar traits to me are Boxer and Napoleon. Boxer is a powerful horse who exhibits limitless .
amount of strength, loyalty , dedication, and is quick to help others, but he is slow minded and .
naively trusts others. Napoleon is an intelligent pig who displays astute ideas. He exploit's the .
other animal's lack of knowledge to better himself. All of these traits do not depict me, but a .
number of them do.
Boxer's strength is comparable to my mentality to attempt to go the extra mile with .
everything that has to be done like Boxer"s motto, "I will work harder." At times, I do give up at .
certain things, but only after I have analyzed the situation and come to the conclusion that it .
would be a wise decision to give it up. Another comparison that I have to Boxer is that I am quick .
to help others. I sincerely enjoy helping and bringing joy to others. Like Boxer was exploited for .
his affability, I to am exploited. People take advantage of the fact that you are nice to them and .
they think you have no recollection of their intention. However my mentality for this .
predicament is "What goes around comes around." .
Napoleon was an intelligent pig in the novel. Despite his selfish actions, he was .
knowledgeable none the less. He used his intelligence to better himself and to put himself ahead .
of others. In school I attempt to exercise my mentality to its fullest capacity. After I have .
obtained my college education, I desire to use my knowledge to make myself better the average .
American male citizen. In these respects, I compare to Napoleon. Napoleon went to the extreme of treating himself like a king after the rebellion because of the other animal's lack of knowledge .
