Individuality is an important trait in every person as it highlights the best aspects of his or her personality. Every person is much different from another person and so there are a lot of differences in opinions and the way people perceive some events. For every person, there are some people who are extremely dear to them and so they fail to understand or highlight the faults and mistakes of such people as they are blinded by the love that they have got for them. The articles being analyzed and compared are written by two different people about the people that they love and it highlights the qualities and traits of those people. There are many similarities in these articles; however, they cannot be more different from one another.

It also shows the traits and qualities of his aunt and what she did in different situations. The traits and qualities of Mr. Bryon and Aunt Pat are extremely different in every sense.
