    Criminal versatility: “A diversity of types of criminal offenses, regardless if the person has been arrested or convicted for them; taking great pride at getting away with crimes.” Again, I have pointed out that Bella has violated the law quite a bit since we saw her, and she expresses great pride in getting away with it. She is gleeful and thrilled with herself to be getting away with owning the motorcycles, which both violates the law and her own father’s edicts, she finds the Cullens’ ways of covering up their existence with various criminal behavior amusing, she plays the car theft they routinely indulge in for laughs, and is very proud of the fact that she circumvents her father’s edict that Edward Cullen only be allowed to see her during visiting hours by having him climb in her window every night, constantly talking about how his supernatural speed, hearing, and telepathy make it very easy for her to get away with it.by AniMack

    Grandoise self-worth: Meyer’s repeated insisting that she has the faux-flaw of supposedly low self-esteem did not do enough to cover this up. Bella’s actions routinely displayed how she believed she was better than all of the paltry humans surrounding her, not to mention her firm belief that she is worthy of vampirism, something she worships above all else.by AniMack

    Need for stimulation and proneness to boredom: Her constant clinging to Jacob and demanding he do things for her that would indulge her reckless behavior, and immediately becoming depressed and borderline tantrumy when he couldn’t be there to entertain her.by AniMack

    Conning and manipulativeness: Her manipulation of first Jacob to use him to get to her ex-boyfriend and then her manipulation of the Cullens to force them to agree to turn her into a vampire.by AniMack

    Lack of remorse or guilt: Bella never feels sorry for using Jacob or hurting her father or shutting her friends out of her life. She never even feels that she did anything wrong.by AniMack

    Shallow effect: Bella very often faked her emotions even though she herself felt nothing.by AniMack

    Callousness and lack of empathy: Bella’s lack of empathy for anyone who was not her was shocking and disturbing. She never bothered considering how anyone felt about anything she did, particularly towards Charlie, and outright stated several times that she didn’t understand emotion and had trouble faking it simply because she didn’t feel it. She also feels no empathy for people dying; until she believes Charlie is being threatened, she doesn’t care that people are out dying in the woods. She becomes angry at herself for being distressed at witnessing the mass murder of forty or fifty innocent civilians at the hands of the Volturi, and then completely forgets about it once they leave Italy. Finally, she brushes off all of Edward’s concerns and feelings on the matter of her soul because they stand in the way of what she wants; she does outright state that she just cannot see his side of it, and makes absolutely no effort to do so.by AniMack

    Parasitic lifestyle: Bella has a very low-paying job, but expresses no intentions of going to college and getting a career of her own, instead using Charlie and, to some extent, Jacob, to support herself, and eventually intending to latch onto the Cullens for the same.by AniMack

    Poor behavioral controls: Several times she expressed a desire to violently hurt someone, and in one case desired to kill someone simply because she felt they were denying her something that was rightfully hers.by AniMack

    Promiscuous sexual behavior: While Bella never slept with anyone, it is made clear in the novels that she does the g-rated version of whoring herself out to get what she wants. Also, any time she is with Edward, she is attempting to take things further than he is comfortable with.by AniMack

    Early behavioral problems: Seeing as she did much of this in Twilight as well, and recounted her tantrums and fits from when she was little, this is a yes.by AniMack

    Lack of realistic, long-term goals: The only goal we have ever seen Bella set for herself is “become a vampire”. When that one temporarily falls through, she makes absolutely no goals for herself, even though she thinks that future is not going to happen.by AniMack

    Impulsivity: Every single thing she did in this novel was done on impulse; she planned nothing out, from attempting to get herself raped and killed by four men and randomly deciding she is going to jump off a cliff without supervision or instruction. She had an inability to resist temptations, and never once considered the consequences of what she was doing.by AniMack

    Irresponsibility: Bella’s irresponsibility relates to many of the above points—people ask very little of her, and she very often fails to do even that, shirking her duties in favor of things that she considers “fun” and that are often very hurtful to herself and/or others, such as gladly accepting Alice into her home and ignoring Charlie when he needs her most after the death of his best friend.by AniMack

    Failure to accept responsibility for own actions: Bella refused to take responsibility for anything she did in this novel, from repeatedly trying to kill herself to hurting Jacob at the end. She always managed to find a way to handwave it as something other than it was or make it somebody else’s fault.by AniMack

    Many short-term marital relationships: While Bella has never married, the root of this is “a lack of commitment to a long-term relationship reflected in inconsistent, undependable, and unreliable commitments in life”. Bella is routinely undependable in all of her relationships, only taking and never giving. Her so-called human friends are only considered her friends when she has no one else to turn to, but once she finds someone better, she shoves them out of her life and ignores them. It is the same with Jacob—Edward leaves her, so she quickly clings to him and showers him with false love and affection, but the moment Edward returns, she goes back to ignoring him like she did before.by AniMack

    Juvenile delinquency: Bella has violated the law repeatedly since we met her in Twilight. She violated almost every law pertaining to owning and riding a motorcycle, she ran away from home twice (three times if you count the forest escapade), she continually invites Edward into her home despite the fact that Charlie has banned him from the house, she has aided and abetted grand theft auto, and the “Vegas” aside reveals that she gladly partakes in the scamming of casinos, stealing thousands of dollars from them for no reason whatsoever.by AniMack

    Revocation of conditional release: Bella constantly violates the rules Charlie has laid down in their house, no matter what punishment he lays upon her.by AniMack
