After reading an article about the characteristics of people who are truly genuine, I learnt a lot from it. From being someone who selects friends by choosing genuine people to converse with, this is something that caught my eye. I don't go out of my way to find genuine people and when I meet a group of people, I'm not on the look out for who is the most genuine, but my brain subconsciously chooses to attach itself to people who are more genuine and then I go onto becoming better friends with them.
From the article I learnt one key thing that I do when I meet new people and I have found it is the ideal way to gain genuine friends, summed up in the quote today:
"Be proactive, not reactive"
