Lord What Fools

Since listening to SS on tapw I've come to realise that a major charactistic of Mr John Dashwood is his ability to fool himself into thinking anything he wants. First he fools himself into believing his father doesn't mean that he shoudl give his sisters money (albeit with the help of his wife), later he fools himself into thinking himself poor and that Col Brandon is interested in Elinor. He must not ever see anything beyond that which didrectly effects him.
