After a fascinating meeting this morning, I could not help but think about different tones/ways of interacting with people most of us have. For example, when speaking with friends, you behave and talk a certain way, but you act and talk differently when around work friends.
If your work friends were to meet your school friends, would they notice the difference in how you interact? Would they have a different opinion of you then?
It is sometimes challenging to read/understand people, from what you hear about them to how they behave when interacting with you. It is difficult to ignore what you hear about them to form a bias towards future interactions with the person.
