this ridiculous "experiment." He even invents a "folly life" theory to support this bet. And when he decides to take both the bet and Eliza, though Pickering and Mrs. Pearce try to reason with him, he changes to use a "professional exquisiteness of modulation" voice to defense himself and convince them. Here, we see a quite selfish and inconsiderate Higgins who uses different tactics-higher position (master), professional status (phonetician), and his wisdom (good talk) to achieve what he wants-to show how great he is in phonetics. At that time, he doesn't give much care about what will happen after he really wins the bet and what about poor Eliza. From this, we find that Higgins is really an impulsive and casual-going (ÀH©Ê) man.
