|Mrs Bennet's comments about Sir William

"Sir William and Lady Lucas are determined to go, merely on that account, for in general, you know, they visit no new-comers."
I find this hard to believe, of Sir William at least, considering what the narrator says of him in Chapter 5
"he could think with pleasure of his own importance, and, unshackled by business, occupy himself solely in being civil to all the world. For, though elated by his rank, it did not render him supercilious; on the contrary, he was all attention to everybody."
This may be an indication that Mrs Bennet is not a good observer of human nature, OR that she twists the facts to suit her purposes (which I believe to be the case).
