Sometimes we know the characters thoughts and can use them to determine the character traits of a character......
In the case of Stinky we cannot do this because the author does not reveal his thoughts.
In the short story, "The Valentine," by Emily Crofford, the character of Stinky is a rude, obnoxious boy who is hurtful to Talmadge.
One example of this is when Stinky first meets Talmadge.
Stinky hears Talmadge speak and laughs at his accent.
This shows that Stinky is rude.
example of how rude Stinky's character is can be shown in his words.
He yells, "You want it, hillbilly,
pick it up!"
He yells this when he steals Talmadge's hat and blows his nose in it.
This action proves that
Stinky's behavior is obnoxious.
The other characters in the story realize that Stinky is not a nice
person. This is shown when Meg says to Josie "Stinky is going to make his life miserable."
In the story
it is revealed that Stinky became mean after he was made fun of when he first came from Oklahoma.
Even though this may explain why Stinky is mean, it almost makes it worse that he is so mean.
Stinky should know how Talmadge feels and be his friend.
Character traits are descriptive adjectives that we use to describe the qualities of the characters in a story or their personalities.
