    I'd agree if it's meant as friends and family and over the medium-long term. Disagree if coworkers and casual acquaintances are included.

    Hmm, interesting. I think I'm more of a connection between the people I spend time with, than an average. I think the world of the people I spend the most time with; they're all so interesting and electrifying to be with. I'm different from them and they're pretty different from each other though.

    I have noticed that my best friends are always ENFJs and ENFPs. It's quite astounding how often I'm drawn to them as friends. I'm never drawn to ENFJ or ENFP men romantically though. We never seem to notice each other.

    There would have to be similarities, but I wouldn't go so far as to say this.

    ISFJ (mother)
    ENFP (sister)
    ISFP (2 guy friends); I'm going to throw in my other 2 friends because I spend more time with them thanmy sister: ISTP and XSXJ (ESTJ?)
    What's the average of these? Letter-wise ISFP I suppose.

    No.

    If the point of that quote is that the company you keep is important, then duh. The people you surround yourself with probably are impacting you. Things like thoughts, behavior, mood might be influenced.

    But your essential self? That's you forever no matter who's around.

    I'm really different from most people I spend time with. They're all different from each other too.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Do the people we spend time with influence us significantly? Obviously.

    But who we are to begin with is a huge part of who we become, and doesn't necessarily have anything to do with those five people.

    Take two completely different people and have them spend the same time with the same five people, and they won't turn out the same.

    I agree it's an oversimplification, but I think there is truth to this as well. There's quite a bit out there about how social networks influence us... you can predict (statistically) how likely someone is going to get divorced by whether or not their friends were recently divorced, for example. The same goes for obesity and weight loss.

    People aren't statistics, and there will always be exceptions, but I think there is enough truth to this that you should be aware of who are you are spending most of your time with.

    I do agree with this.
