81 / 100
As the Games progresses, Katniss needed help from more people to survive despite being independent.

4. Other People’s Opinion Matters

Most people tell themselves that they do not need to be liked or receive sympathy from others, but in the end, everyone needs that. Katniss needs to remain popular to get sponsors during the Games and has to be admired by the people of Panem to get them rebel against the capitol.

5. One Person Can Spark a Revolution

It often takes one person to spark a revolution or a change. In Hunger Games, Katniss is the face of the insurgence and has begun an era of change thanks to her actions. It is because of Katniss’ effort the resistance can put their plans into motion.

6. Even Heroes Have Flaws

No one is perfect and that also applies to the heroes. Katniss does not possess great people skills and is somewhat oblivious about love. She often acts before she thinks and does not have great acting skills. This is evident when she is trying to prepare rebel propaganda.

7. Everyone Needs Emotional Support

Everyone needs someone in life who can emotionally support them during a crisis. In Hunger Games, Katniss tries to look to strong and brave but soon realizes that she cannot survive emotionally all by herself and needs someone by her side to support her. As the game progresses, she allows other people such as Peeta to come into her life.
