This trait tends to make Sara feel a little out of step with others. Sara Gilbert takes things a little more seriously and has an inclination to be somewhat of a fanatic, although probably not flamboyantly so; as a result, others may not be aware of how deeply Sara feels and how driven she is about the things that are important to her.
