She is very sensitive to criticism and easily feels left out or neglected, and though she may appear cool or distant, Gates actually cares very much about being included.

Her reserve and caution make establishing close emotional relationships with others difficult, and Melinda Gates becomes very attached to the few people she considers "real friends".
