She would say that she is a woman trying to find herself after an accident. And that she is in wants to hide away until she can do this. So she wants to conceal her identity by disguising herself up as a guy. This way he can become a servant of a man named Duke Orsino. and the only way she can do that is by disguising herself as a man. In the text it, "help me conceal my identity, and find me the right disguise so I can look the way I want. I want to be this Duke’s servant."

Others Perception Of Viola (Twelfth Night)
Other people would think of Viola/Cesario as smart because if she wasn't then Orsino wouldn't have sent her to Olivia's to send her the message. They would also think about her as cunning because the sea captain was there when Viola made up her plan on the spot. Also they can think of her as a problem solver because she any obstacle she comes across she figures out a way to get herself out of the situation she's in. And example of her showing these traits is in the statement, "Now will not I deliver his letter, for the behavior of the young gentleman gives him out to be of good capacity and breeding. His employment between his lord and my niece confirms no less."

Viola and I are both similar because we both are smart. I say this because when we both know how to figure things out on our own. Another way we are similar is because we are both determined on the things we want. Just like Viola is determined to get Olivia to like Orsino I am determined on the things I like to do. We are also similar because we both are willing to speak our mind. Just as Viola speaks her mind to Olivia, I speak my mind to everyone I know.
