Difference in Deviation Styles

Something from the game that has caught my attention is the different ways Kara, Markus, and Connor deviate. Kara pushes "the wall" to break it, Markus punches it, and Connor rips it. Is there any significance to these different techniques? Does it have to do with their characterization?

I was thinking it was merely an indirect characterization technique, in that Kara is a gentle and kind character, Markus is intense and passionate, and Connor is more desperate and uncertain. I could be overthinking it, but I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Here’s my opinion:

You’re right about Kara. She’s not doing it because she wants to be free (Later on she does), she needs to do it to protect Alice. So she pushed against it instead of violently attacking it.

Markus wanted to defend himself, as we see his character trying to punch Leo but being stopped by the wall. S he’s actually indirectly becoming deviant by trying to punch Leo.

Connor tore it down because he was tired of being controlled. He tore it down because he was desperate. He tore his instructions down “Stop Markus/North”. Meaning he wanted to live free.
