Sidetracked


I came across the following line sometime back. I have tweaked it slightly. Maybe we all can reflect on what kind of person we are & our friends/lovers too:


I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles/treats the following:


a rainy day

the elderly

lost luggage

service staff / the maid

'....can tell a lot about a person ....' should not be a way the book is judged by it's cover. A person's feelings and views evolves and is indicative only in the time that the observation takes place, not the person in his/ her entirity.

grace,

yes agreed, but isnt that the only way we can tell a person???... at a specific point in time and based on history ... how else can we say what kind of person he/she is?? yes we are all unfinished products, people evolve, if and when they evolve, at a future point in time, i will say he is diff then ... no problem at all...
what the exercise really is about is what are your motivations and personal make up... you can hide many things from people by projecting a certain persona in front of friends and families and esp business associates ... the questions drive at what kind of values is CURRENTLY immersed and driving you as a person.

I met one of the space aspirant finalist Vanaja Sivasubramaniam recently.According to her the training was tough with total lack of sleep. A man/woman's true colours can be seen during this period. The cursing and back biting is unbelievable.
Pssst, she confide to me privately-
She was the number one to be chosen by the Russian for space but then ..........we all know la.
