Well known: Hermione Granger.
So, I don't know about you guys, but they VERY NERVED ME!
I just can't stand your nerd tour ...
However, I found out that she is quite a popular character.
Why? I do not understand.
Another case is Neville Longbottom.
Many like him because he 'has had such a wonderful characteristic development'.
WHAT THE FUCK??
Do you like your best friends because they developed characteristically at some point !?
That’s no REASON to be sympathetic!
Are there others here who share my view? Why do you like Hermione or Neville? Or Sirius, who is also a crowd favorite?
Enlighten me!

Do you like your friends because they are good friends who will go through thick and thin with you and are always loyal?

Yes?

Then you have your answer to why so many people like Hermione and Neville.

I like Hermione because she is loyal, never lets Harry down, is well read, is intelligent, and is a great friend. I love Hermione.

@Herzschlag: Don't your friends have any annoying quirks?

And if you do, how on earth, can you just like them?

Hermione is funny, smart, loyal and, at first, one of the most insecure characters around. Since I can personally empathize with why she is the way she is and how much she suffers from the fact that she often meets with rejection, I took her to my heart. I basically like characters who are not popular in their world. I like certain weaknesses in character, including those that are actually unsympathetic because I can empathize or at least understand why he or she is like that! That's why I love Hermione Granger. But I'm not particularly fond of Neville either. I like it, but it doesn't touch me.
We don't even want to start with Sirius. I don't like the guy. There are qualities that I can overlook more easily than others. Bullying behavior is not one of them, especially because he doesn't seem to feel sorry for it in adulthood.

Sympathy is a feeling and therefore has no REASON, at least not superficially.

Hermione is not necessarily sympathetic to me either (because of her bossy manner, I would have become rebellious ^^) but Neville does not have a quality that I do not like.

It's not a crime to like someone. Personally, I don't need a logical or profound background to find someone sympathetic or not. The nature of a character is just like that, there are no reasons.
It doesn't have to make sense if it's just vaguely inspirational.

I never said that you shouldn't like her ^^
But I have noticed that there are so many illogical explanations as to WHY you like them.
Somebody once said to me "I like Hermione because she has the same hair color as me"
That surprised me a lot.
But I'm happy that you can give me such a plausible explanation ^^
@ Lapislazuli67 Of course my friends have quirks, but of course I still like them. But how on earth does that have to do with that question? Hermione doesn’t exist, nor does it have anything to do with my personal life. I just asked why they like so many because I can't understand.

Well, your opening post sounds like you rarely have to be stupid to like Hermione (or Neville) - much like the "Is Ginny an Annoying Mary Sue" thread back then. It's probably never meant that way, but that's how it comes across (at least for me).

In short: you don't need any for others logically comprehensible Reasons to like someone. I don't like my friends for logical reasons, nor any literary characters. And you probably neither. You're just imagining it's logical.

This has to do with your private life in that you probably don't like people you call "nerds" either. For me, your reasoning why Hermione annoys you is also absolutely not logically comprehensible - I like ambitious people. It never gets boring with them because they always know something interesting ...

Then I must have phrased the question incorrectly;)
I have nothing against nerds. I even have a bit of a nerd about myself.
But I can...
-The way she shows off her knowledge
-Your kind at all
... Not suffer. And, as you said, there are no reasons that anyone else can understand why you might like someone. It is the same with being unsympathetic. I just don't like them. Point.
I just want to know if there are other people who don't like Hermione either.
(Ps: I don't call anyone stupid if they like Hermione / Neville / Sirius. All my friends like them too. That's why I opened a thread asking if I'm alone in the world with this view;))

Well, apparently you are actually a bit alone with your view * gg *

I like Hermione too. And I like Neville because you can see a character development in him (I know you wrote that above ^^)
I suspect that many like that you can just see that. From a literary point of view, figures that are three-dimensional are nicer to read. Figures that develop, that learn. And that is very true of Neville.

And Sirius ^^ Well, because of logical reasons: He was described as pretty * gg * I like him too, but more as a Wolverine type: The girl flirts with the bad (but she takes the good one home with her). He's such a charming bully. I think that's what makes him interesting.

Noiinn! I am aleon! ^^
okay, okay, I saw it. There is no explanation for it. Good as well ;)
I like Sirius ... Hmm. Goes so. In the third part he's pretty cool. But I don't think he's that sexy (in the film). Not my taste: D
But it doesn't matter.

Well, you're not all alone. I actually hate Hermione, at least. And explain, well, halfway. She just pisses me off when she starts babbling. Sometimes I really wanted to jump into the book and yell at her to just shut up.

With Neville, however, sorry. I love him more than anything. No idea. I liked him from the start. In a cute way, but clearly, on the whole he was likeable but unimportant. But just because I liked him, then more and more history and then his development, he probably became one of my favorite characters.

I can understand quite well. I don't necessarily dislike Neville either;)

To be honest - and I don't mean to offend you by this - I find such questions absolutely hollow. Why do you like someone? Why not? No matter what answer we could or would give you, you would still not be able to understand it, precisely because you do not feel that way. I also don't understand how you can ask about various pairings or why someone likes or dislikes Slash. There is only one answer: That's the way it is. That won't help you, but it's a fact.

Ahh, okay, that's your opinion then.

To the post above:

So I'm just wondering if some have read a different book than me.
Above all, I just can't think of where Hermione bragged about her knowledge.
She is just very inquisitive and of course would like to use this knowledge in school and whenever it is necessary.
For me, showing off is definitely different.
And let's be honest: If I knew as much as Hermione, then I would certainly behave just like her and help out in class. And that doesn't make me a show-off ...

And yes, this is about a book character, but that can also be transferred to reality.

Well, that's personal perception.
Sure, Hermione doesn't brag directly. She tries to cover up her insecurity with her knowledge. Says JKR himself. That can come across as showing off.
There are also many Hermione fans who find Hermione confident. I don't even ask them if they've read another book. They just perceived Hermione differently.

"Stop, stop, stop. Ron, this is how you kill someone else. It's not called Wingardium Leviosaaa, but Wingardium Leviosa!" And how she then so smugly lets the pen float ...
That seems very conceited / boastful to me.
Sometimes she may even be a bit arrogant, e.g .: "Ron, you've got dirt on your nose. Doesn't look nice"
However, I have to say that this disappears more and more in the course of the books. For example in the seventh part.
I still don't like them. Point.

I actually like Hermione.
But Neville and Sirius probably not.

But that is the representation in Movie, don't get confused. In the book, if I remember correctly, things work a little differently. Besides, she and Ron are not friends yet, and to people I don't like and who then act stupid, I'm generally not friendliness in person either. I find it interesting how book characters are always presented with what the average person does in everyday life. Incidentally, this is one of the things that makes me like Hermione.

HA! Sorry, but he has to.

Quote HP1 122:
"All right. I only came in because the people outside act childishly and are constantly running up and down the aisles «, said Hermione snootily. "And by the way, you've got dirt on your nose, do you know that?"

As I said, Hermione's way of covering up her insecurity is especially at the beginning. Just don't change anything that their way is annoying to some, less to others or not at all. Is just the way.

Although it could also be because Harry didn't like her at the beginning and later she was his girlfriend. The book is told in a very personalized way. =)
So we read his perception, so to speak.

You shouldn't forget that the three of them were only 11 years old at the beginning - even if Hermione was "snooty" and pretended to be clever or maybe just because she was a witch, I think so not bad at all. I didn't particularly dislike her at that point, as far as I can remember.

On the contrary, I really like the way JKR has characterized her with her quirks and "quirks" without making her (for me personally) unsympathetic.
Post # 25, written on 09/28/2011 | 7:27 pm
At this point, I certainly don't mind. It just fitted so well.
And of course that didn't say anything at the beginning.
For me it is rather the stringing together of many individual moments that make Hermione unsympathetic to me in a coarse combination.
