I see her as a bossy lady who wants everyone to act according to her admonitions.
If there is no interaction with anyone else, it only means that no-one but Elizabeth "with her easy playfulness" feels equal to arguing with her...

It is likely that her imperiousness has scared off all potential company in the neighbourhood.
