Today, while I was watching a video on YouTube, I came across the following sentence:
Contrary to my personality, my sister is very outgoing and tends to make friends easily.
From a meticulous academic writing view, I feel there is something off about the comparison that is established in the sentence: the two elements that are being compared to each other are my personality and my sister which doesn't make any sense. Thus, if I were to write this sentence, I would reconstruct it by adjusting either of the two elements:
Contrary to my personality, that of my sister is very outgoing and she always tends to make friends easily. (I am not totally satisfied with this one. Just trying)
Contrary to myself, my sister is very outgoing and tends to make friends easily
Can anyone clarify it a little bit and distinguish right from wrong?
