An enormous thanks to the biggest and best Elsa fan I know, link
from tumblr, who did most of the work when I asked her for ideas on who Elsa would like best (I used much of her own words, so most credit to her, but paraphrased as much as I dared). She has a better understanding of Elsa's character than anyone I've known. Thanks to everyone else who gave me their ideas as well!
Elsa's puncak, atas and bottom princesses were relatively easy to guess without help, but I had a lot of difficulty with the middle ones, because parts of Elsa's personality we don't get to see, just the obvious things like valuing duty and family. I do think Elsa would appreciate responsibility over the usual follow-your-heart theme disney usually promotes, and would mostly prefer the elegant princesses. 11. Jasmine.
Elsa wouldn't like Jasmine's spoiled, impulsive attitude. She would see her aggression as a bit shocking and maybe intimidating too. She'd admire, even envy, how easily melati expresses herself and her opinions, but would find her too self-centered, too stubborn, and too inclined to defy her father and tradition instead of putting the needs of her kingdom first. 10. Merida.
Elsa would see Merida as a selfish ingrate who doesn't think before she acts. She's very improper and doesn't care about responsibilities atau trying to be a good ruler. Elsa would empathize Merida's regret over hurting her mother and setting things right, and cut her some slack for making mistakes, but not admire anything about her. 9. Ariel.
While a part of Elsa would relate to Ariel's dream of living on land and cinta the escapist aspect of it, she would dislike Ariel's disobedience of her father. She'd prefer a princess who is lebih traditional and dutiful. 8. Mulan.
Obviously Elsa would relate to Mulan's pessimism and issue of self-suppression, though they're both done for different reasons. In theory, Elsa would appreciate Mulan's dedication to her father, but would disapprove of the latter's risky gamble to take his place, which later blows up in Mulan's face at one point, which she was lucky to get away with. It wouldn't suit Elsa's sense of prudence, as she's not one for taking risks and always tries to consider the possible consequences of her actions. 7. Tiana.
This would be the start of the princesses Elsa truly likes. Elsa would really admire Tiana's respect for her father, her sophistication and emotional strength born from losing a parent and living an oppressed life, two things Elsa could empathize with. She'd understand Tia's motivation in putting a goal above her own personal wishes. But she would still see it as a bit of a self-absorbed goal (it's a private business, which isn't the same as public service like ruling a kingdom). She would admire Tiana, but probably only relate to the similarities between them. 6. Rapunzel.
Elsa would appreciate Rapunzel's artistic, passionate side and relate to her fear about the outside world (since Elsa also led a sheltered life). She would also understand Punz's desire to be free of a confined condition, something Elsa always desired but would never have acted upon, and like how her sunny charisma makes people like her easily. However, she'd be concerned with how quickly Rapunzel trusts Flynn. 5. Belle.
Elsa would cinta Belle's dignity and classiness, her bookish side, and her wanting lebih from life but being too loyal and sensible to leave her situation. Notwithstanding their mature, elegant personalities, she still wouldn't care for how Belle looks down on the villagers, because Elsa cares enormously for her citizens, and she also wouldn't care for how manipulative Belle can be, like when she tricks Cogsworth. Elsa also wouldn't care for Belle's stubbornness, which is a quality in Anna that annoys her (to her great frustration), but she'd generally cinta her classy, responsible personality. 4. Snow White.
Elsa would relate to how Snow White subsequently finds her courage after going through so much fear in a new situation (relating her powers getting out to Snow White's running through the woods and fear at the hands of the Huntsman). Elsa would generally appreciate Snow White's responsible, organized manner of running the dwarf household, diberikan Elsa's own upbringing to properly manage a kingdom, all the while being so kind and respectful to everyone. But she might find Snow White's bossy, manipulative manner rather grating, and think she can be a little silly for believing in destiny and fairy tale romance. 3. Pocahontas.
Elsa would appreciate Pocahontas's hard choice of staying with her people rather than to go with John Smith and her self-sacrifice for him, though she'd wonder why it took her so long to decide if she should save him atau not. She'd cinta her general dutiful, mature attitude and admire the "one with the wind and sky" aspect of Pocahontas's life, thought it's so different from her own upbringing. She would secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan find Pocahontas interesting and admirable. 2. Cinderella.
Elsa would adore Cinderella's graceful dignity. She'd also appreciate her quiet diligence in a difficult situation and how cinderella sublimates her own wishes out of a recognition of the necessities of life, even as those longings linger deep in Cinderella's heart, as they do in Elsa's. She'd cinta how cinderella always keeps her emotions under control, while still being warm-hearted, because Elsa would wish she could have found a happy medium like that. She would just cinta everything about cinderella and her story of freedom. 1. Aurora.
Elsa wouldn't dislike anything about Aurora. She'd cinta how Aurora is affectionate and wears her jantung on her sleeve, since Elsa was never able to do that. She'd be Elsa's favorit for every reason: her elegance, her class, how they both like solitude yet simultaneously long for companionship, and especially how Aurora sacrifices personal happiness for the duties of her kingdom. Aurora would be Elsa's "sister lebih like me."
