English term or phrase: counter-character
Intervju med Internationella valutafondens chef Christine Lagarde;

"Lagarde has often been underestimated and treated as a lightweight.
“I’m sort of counter-character, counter-cyclical, counter whatever you want,” she says."

Jag skulle gärna få förslag på hela meningen.

Tack på förhand,
