    Default verbs that require as object forms???

    I wonder if the following verbs can be accompanied by as +object, such as

    I know her as a kind woman.
    Peple characterize him as a generous and kind man.

    also, is that possbile if i say like this?

    I know her as being kind.
    I characterize him as being generous.

    also, can you give me more examples of the verbs that requre as... form?

    I always appreciate your great help.

    They're OK, though #3 sounds a bit stilted to me- I'd remove the gerund.
