Character Types: The Naive Hero(ine)

As it happens, a lot of dramas may feature a clumsy, more or less silly, naive but good-hearted character who makes all sorts of silly mistakes, is submissive, stupid but strong, is characterised by the noble idiot syndrome, is warm-hearted or otherwise  lacks intellect but is very loving (and lovable); some  such characters make significant progress throughout the drama- they are rookies who need to gain experience in order to learn; others never learn. Not all of these rookies are always very submissive or naive, either.  The standard naive heroine figure also tends to be typical for romcoms, but the variants of this figure are to be found in other genres as well.
