Easily move with others. Difficult to do maths. Regular to school, even if sick. Read casually, but score good marks. Obstinate- whatever I wish I want to do. Interested to do hand works, reading novels. Angered easily - Shout and show anger only to family members. If house is not clean. Every thing should be in the right place. If anyone find fault in me, I talk back against them. If anybody advice me, I never consider, immediately talk against them. ’08 Love marriage. Came out of her house without saying to anyone. Was more attached with father. Giddiness while seeing blood, accidents. Takes time to forget. After father’s death giddiness on hearing ambulance sound or going to hospital.Religious3+. If she has a simple sickness, she imagines it to be a big disease. Aversion to be alone. Likes consolation, reveals her sufferings to others for consolation.
