Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? One can learn a lot about a person from the type of friends this person has.
Getting know about an individual personality through the type of their friends is not an unconvincing means to a certain extent. People would only friend with those attracted to them, so we can see the preferences or life values of that person from his or her friends, particularly intimate ones.
It is admitted that we all have some friends whose characters are so distinct from us, but if we observe carefully, it is not difficult to find out the friendship with conflicting humanity is bound to fade away gradually. At least this is true for me. We girls are so obsessed with constellation as a reference to judge whether a person is matched with us or not. I was born in April, and according to the illustration of constellation books, I was born with failure of getting along well with someone born in November. It is explained that they are over aggressive and like to control everything following their thought of train, which is virtually not my likes. I am described as generous, thoughtful, considerate and innocent. Even though there is no scientific evidence to prove this popular belief, it makes sense that people with so distinct characters will not build up a solid social connection.
Moreover, the commonest example for supporting this statement is how a man choose his partner, which is believed to have an underlying pattern showing the man's marital values, even they might have no consciousness themselves. A man constantly chasing after girls with sexy body shape and pretty appearance is regarded as a shallow one who simply weighs the extricate traits more than the inner beauty. In contrast, attracted to a plain-looking but wise and kind lady, the man will be honored as a reliable quality. Thus, we can judge a man from what his wife is like.
Additionally, analyzing from a wider angle, people with similar concerns tend to be more closely related to each other. On a higher level, this fact is also true with countries. Back to the Cold War, countries with similar social system fell into two major categories: the capitalist west led by US and the socialist east led by USSR. By looking at a country’s alliances, people could easily know what kind of country it was. On a lower level, people with similar social status or interests are more inclined to hang out together because their ways of life are subjected to similar factors (such as money and time) they share: housewives may become acquainted with housewives in the supermarkets; millionaires knows their kindred spirits in a luxurious golf club.
To sum up, there exists reasonable judgment about a person's character by observing their friend type. There is an old saying in Chinese, animals gather by family, human are divided by groups.
