That specific quote has everything to do with her education.

 

Regardless of the context, that speaks volumes about her state of mind.

*sigh*

That quote really doesn't shed much light on her activities. She doesn't even say how long she's been living like a hermit. A lot of people who slack during the year gear up come finals. That quote could just as easily imply laziness.

And what gives you reason to believe she is a lazy person?

 

When has anyone ever called her anything other than dedicated and hard-working?

What gives you reason to believe that she is hard-working all the time?

Personally, I haven't read any quotes from her fellow students or professors describing her as hard-working. Point me to those if they exist.

Based on every description from everyone who has ever known her. 

 

 

If they all are consistently describing her like that, then I think it's safe to assume she isn't lazy in this case either.

 

 

It doesn't seem like much of a logical leap.

Except that you're accepting quotes from the past to still be true today without evidence. The HP family could attest to her studious nature, but no one knows if it's still like that. Like I said in that other thread, her public stance on the importance of education has changed. It's not a "logical leap" to assume her attitude has changed accordingly, and that may or may not have resulted in a change of behaviour. Simply assuming that she's still the schoolgirl she used to be has little to do with logic but a lot with faith.

Study habits don't change. 

 

Her priorities changed, but that doesn't mean her entire personality did.

 

She isn't taking her classes this serious to maintain an image, it's a part of who she is as a person. That doesn't just change.

Hey, I wasn't talking to you. :P

I adore you <3 I don't put emma on a pedestal but she is a role model, studious serious and focused person. Professionally. I don't know anything personally.

On what statistics do you base this opinion?

This isn't faith.

 

If certain habits existed in the past, then it is completely logical to assume they still exist today.

 

It is not very logical to assume her habits fundamentally changed just because her priorities did.

It's not in any way logical to assume that a person can't change over the course of years. Especially if we're talking about putting your mental faculties to work with as much effort as you're capable of.

IOW, while we can assume that Emma will always know how to ride a bike, we cannot assume that she will always ride her bike with the same regularity, with the same effort, all her life.

Riding a bike isn't a habit. That's a bad analogy.

 

 

This isn't about effort. It's about habits.

 

If you habitually studied hard when you were young, you aren't going to reverse that habit with any kind of ease. It's ingrained in your mind.

 

You don't do it that way because you're being forced to. In your mind, it's just the only way you know how.

This isn't about effort. It's about habits.

The analogy is quite sound. Exercising everyday with a set intensity is a habit; studying everyday with a certain amount of focus is a habit.

You're claiming that studying, with a set intensity, isn't about effort - I don't think so. Studying very much requires constant effort. Nowhere (and not in your article) have I read that some people simply can't help but study hard - in a way that it takes no conscious decision - but do so without suffering any exhaustion.

If you habitually studied hard when you were young, you aren't going to reverse that habit with any kind of ease. It's ingrained in your mind.


That's mostly preposterous, for the reasons above.

Let's again take exercising as an example. There are plenty examples of people who upheld a certain regimen of sport during a certain time, but had their efforts diminished over time. Emma herself has brought this issue up in some interviews; stating that she used to do so much sports when she was in elementary/ high school, and that she hadn't realized how tedious it is if you have to arrange all that yourself, adding that she nowadays mostly stops running when she's fatigued or only goes for walks, which is "hopeless."

Interestingly, in this interview she even hints at the ways she's changed from her highschool days; this supports my argument rather than yours. When she talks about the way we're perceived in school, she might mean the way she was regarded to be brainy or nerdy. At Brown, she was no longer in such an intimate environment (as she had been at her boarding school), and it seems a bit of "reinvention" took place there, regarding her habits (putting less emphasis on studying, and more on other activities, like acting).

Eh, this is too much speculation.

 

 

With so little information, I can't see any conclusive evidence to suggest she is studying more or less than she was in the past. 

 

Until such conclusive evidence arises, it's normal to assume nothing has changed.

My God Roberto are you trying to make a point here?

 

I love the interview, I love how it's more of a conversation than a boring Q&A thing

Omg please lay off of Emma and her school-WHO CARES! Clearly one on here (not Elena or Roberto) missed the entire point of what Emma was saying-WANTS PRIVACY. Why is it so hard to just enjoy an interview? Why attack Emma on her studies-again IT IS HER CHOICE to attend. Why does this bother some of the few on here? Are some of you taking expensive bets on her attending school? I just dont get why her school attendance is so important to some.

Anyway, I ADORE this interview-she is sweet, humble, down to earth, and all around cool. :) Emma respects this interviewer-she shared it on her twitter.
