It has been said that great minds think alike; so do mediocre minds; that makes the only truly original thinkers the lesser minds. Perhaps Elizabeth knew that foreseeing any consistent reaction from her mother was an effort in frustration. *chuckles*
Mrs. Bennet received Mr. Collins with a calmness that astounded her daughters on hearing a dropt hint in his letter. She flew into hysterics when she first heard that Lydia had eloped with Wickham. She thinks that alienating Bingley's best friend will have no effect on Bingley's attentions to Jane.
She is amazingly hard to predict, considering her mind being as easy to develop as it is. Elizabeth was probably assigning her mother a consistency she did not deserve, in guessing Mrs. Bennet's dislike might taint this news, but the only thing predictable about Mrs. Bennet is her overdone responses to everything.
