Huh. I don't get that read from her at all, but then I don't see where she's particularly bad with people in the first place. I mean, she's very blunt, and some find that disconcerting (and, admittedly, it tends to make her a bit blind to subtlety on the part of others - or even UNsubtlety, looking at you, Perrine), but, I mean, she's no Joe Friday. I think she's quite charismatic, just in a somewhat peculiar way.
However, they did change her voice actress after season 1, and I don't think the second one is quite as good at the laugh. So she does come across a little awkwardly sometimes, but I'm not so sure that that's the character's fault, as such.
