This is a very true thing that people can know your character by knowing your friends character. What do you think about this?

You are right in the sense that the individuals are known by their company and company mainly comprises of friends. So friends are your identity of course! If your friends are of good character then surely you'll be a good person of course. So, it is my advice to choose good and correct friends. Don't go for bad company which will lead you to destructive life.

I believe in it.We are what our friends are.I thik we will not befriend people who has an attitude that is very different from us because it sounds boring-hanging up with people whose characters are miles away from us.Also we tend to do what our friends do to get acceptance so it is true that we are what our friends are.

Hi, I feel that we have categories of friends. The ones we can choose ,the ones we have due to common workplace or by spending most of the time together. Though we may learn to adapt to them and like/tolerate the second variety, one cannot completely define us based on such pals. The "my-character-defining" friends can only be very few and the ones we have choosen . Now they would definitely define us and may in fact even know us better than ourselves !

It makes sense. There's an old saying: Things of a kind come together, people of a mind fall into the same group. There's another saying, you will attract the people who have similar characters of you.

It is true, most of the time. But sometimes you may like a person because he/she is totally different from you. For example, someone is humorous and always tells a lot of jokes that make you laugh,you call him a friend because you are happy to be with him. But that don't makes you a humorous person.

That words is fair enough. There's an old saying: "If we be friend with perfume seller, we can also get the great fragrant." And also, a lot of interaction with our friends may make our character being blended each other. The situation and environment around you may affect your own character, that's it..

As the saying goes, "tell me who your friends are, and I will tell you who you are." It reflects our reputation on who are the people we consider as friends and hang out with. If we keep friends with gangsters and drunkards, we will be adapting their ways and if we befriend good people, we will be like them as well.
