Bartleby is an unconventional and non-efficient being He does what he wishes when he wishes He does not do what is asked of him Dealing with this type of person is challenging and trying When asked to do something Bartleby would listen but would often responded I would prefer not to He does not say he wont do it but he would rather not Throughout the entire narration of this story Bartleby never does something he wishes not to he succeeds in his lethargic ways This inspires me to just say I dont want to or Id rather not when something is asked of me The reason I dont live my life by these words is that in this society I live in there would be consequences For Bartleby no consequences took place he was un-happy with even once send to jail he was content with not having to accomplish anything It inspires neither pity nor terror in me I do not have any emotions besides laughter after reading this I dont feel pity because Bartleby was satisfied with his place in life and pity is felt when someone is felt sorry for that is not the case Terror would be felt if Bartley could inspire others to be like himself but he did not If he could have done this a mass of Bartlebys would have been destructive and disruptive Bartleby only deeply affects one person the lawyer Other people are exposed to his behavior but since they have not tried to understand Bartleby they are not attached or affected by him and end up sending him off to jail I do in a sense feel sorry about the fact Bartleby ended up in jail in my opinion he did not do anything wrong He was himself The flaw of Bartleby would be his demeanor and outlook on life This becomes a tragic flaw when it forces him into jail
