So basically you’re telling me this is the best fucking game ever created
Extrovert + Introvert = Ambivert
As a follow up to my Extrovert vs. Introvert post.
Some people have troubles with clearly defining themselves as either an introvert or an extrovert, which is understandable because these extremes are quite often portrayed as the only two alternatives with nothing in between which contrdicts with humans’ fluid and very complex nature. Thus it is entirely not unusual when someone cannot completely identify as either this or that, so for those who possess qualities of both introverts and extroverts the term ambivert has been established.
Ambiverts generally enjoy having company and meeting up with people and interaction usually isn’t as draining for them as it would be for an extremely introverted person, whereas they relish in being on their own just as well and don’t seek the company of others as strongly or often as extroverted people.

So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book.
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness.
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him.
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.
This is something John Green really likes to do with his male leads, actually. He gives them crippling flaws that they have to overcome, and it’s really obvious from the start that these are FLAWS, not things to be celebrated.
AAOK’s Colin is incredibly co-dependent and clingy, and he has to learn that you cannot wear your relationships with people like patches for the holes in your identity.
PT’s Quentin is obsessive with a quasi-savior complex, and he has to come to terms with the fact that sometimes it is HEALTHIER to let go, and that saying goodbye isn’t always a bad thing, because sometimes it’s just not meant to be and that’s okay.
LFA’s Miles is possessive and entitled, and he has to realize that loving someone doesn’t mean you own them, or that you are the only person entitled to or capable of loving them.
I hope you’re noticing the “No, you can’t have her, because she’s a person and people are not things to be owned” theme, because I think it’s pretty important, and it’s honestly one of my favorite things about his books.
There are certainly things that can and should be criticized about his books, but if you think Augustus’ pretentiousness is one of those things, then I think you have missed to whole point of his character arc.
I mean, this story’s written by the guy who absolutely LOVES Catcher in the Rye, and the deconstruction of seriously flawed Holden Caulfield-esque characters, and it really shows in ALL of his books, why would you expect this one to be any different?
