While it may be true that Elinor would overlook the superficiality of not being animated by Cowper. She shows how incredibly self-centered she is by being oblivious to the fact that Elinor is a deep feeling person. She's so self-absorbed that she can't even fathom a person more reserved than herself, (which is probably 99.95% of the population), is capable of having any feelings whatsoever.
In these first 12 chapters, she's not a whole lot better than Fanny. Her only real saving grace is her introduction in chapter 1: 'She was generous, amiable, interesting: she was everything but prudent.' So far, she has only proven the narrator was right about the prudence.
