True, but that's not so much about the subgenre as the MC Resolve. A character in an Evolution story could also face that crisis of 'can I actually move ahead with this huge life change or can I walk it back?' It might be harder, but it's an MC Resolve question.
Admittedly, using the words external and internal is completely wrong on my part, given that we're talking about an Internal domain. But what I meant to say is that one is an intentional change, while the other is unintentional. 'Makeover' stories are driven by characters intentionally seeking to change a set of circumstances, while 'Evolution' stories just happen to change their characters because of life or love or something else experiential.
My use of 'external' and 'internal' is down to the fact that most Makeover stories do tend to deal with the external world to some regard (such as making over the Moulin Rouge or getting Harvey committed), whereas Evolution stories are pretty much entirely about that inner journey.
My argument for Social Change in Rationalization is that it's a subgenre entirely about changing people's minds and challenging rationalizations for the status quo. But there's only one story in that subgenre, so it's a tenuous grasp, I'll admit. Without the other, it's hard to determine where it sits.
