Ever thought about some quick ways you can learn about a man’s character or personality?
There are two that I’ve used for years and recently I was enlightened to learn about another one.
For years, I’ve made some quick assessments about character by considering the shoes that the individual wears. I think there is much to be gained by taking a glance at what’s being sported on the ole’ dogs. What kind of shoes are they? Are they a mainstream brand name, generic brand, or do only the high-end retail stores carry them? Were they handmade in Italy or did they come right off the manufacturer’s conveyer belt? And what about their condition? Are they brand spanking new with no nicks or are they worn and dirty with holes in the soles?
Another way of gauging a guy’s character is by how he treats his family and especially his mother. Does he have a family? Does he exhibit care and concern towards his family? Does he travel to visit family on holidays and vacations?
Recently while having drinks with a friend, I was introduced to another method for learning about a Man’s character. My friend and I were talking with the bartender and he said that the best way to know about a guy’s character is by how he treats a stranger. I had an “aha” moment. After talking with the bartender further, I started to think that dealing with family involves expectations and roles, however, how one treats a stranger is purely an outcome of how they were raised and how they have developed their sense of self. What does it say about a guy when he says hello, holds the door, says please and thank you, and just seems to treat and respond to everyone as they are equals?
