“Is Aisha an Introvert or an Extrovert?” Follow-Up
Posted On August 3, 2020
In the other post, I mentioned that one of Aisha’s profiles called her “something of a loner”. But I couldn’t find it. I think I may have confused it with Helia’s profile. Oops! ?
But I found an Aisha profile that said something similar. It’s not the one I was thinking of — I could have sworn it was her season four profile — but it still counts. It came from Rainbow’s Winx toy website during the season five era.
Here it is:
Nope, it’s not in English. This is Ukrainian. There’s no English version, but I compared the text in multiple available languages. They were mostly the same.
In the line I highlighted, Aisha said she’s sometimes “stubborn, antisocial, and shy” (впертою, нетовариської і соромливою). Other translations called her “solitary”, “aloof”, “insecure”, and “sheepish”. You get the idea: she’s not comfortable around people sometimes, and she’s not always sure of herself.
Does that mean she’s more of an introvert than an extrovert? Maybe. That makes sense because of her backstory.
But notice she said “sometimes”. She’s not always like this, but it’s something she struggles with.
That’s where Nex comes in. He’s a sociable, outgoing guy, according to his character descriptions (here and here). When Aisha retreats into herself, he’s there to remind her she has a support system, and it’s okay to ask them for help when she needs it. We saw this in Winx season eight, of course.
I bet that’s what Rainbow had in mind when they created him. Aisha wants to be more social. She only had one friend as a child, after all, so she got used to being alone. It’s hard to break out of that lone wolf mentality sometimes.
So an extrovert, someone who’s naturally social, is a great boyfriend for her. I think that’s why Rainbow keeps highlighting Nex’s sociable side: to contrast with her hyper-independence.
I won’t dive into their relationship right now because I’m working a longer post about their yin-yang dynamic. But for more about Aisha’s personality (and Nex’s), check out Power of Charmix’s recent video!
