    You are seen as the average of the five people you are with most, unless you actively reject the appearance. Could that be more accurate?

    To an extent you can judge people for the company they keep, but I think it would be something of a mistake to assume they are like the company they keep. Indeed, what is sometimes so baffling and ripe for judgment in the choice of company people make is that people so often pick company worlds apart and all wrong for themselves.

    Essentially this.


    Besides, I spend all my time with one person and one cat.

    Mmmmm, I have a hard time with this. Mostly because the 5 people I spend the most time with are all introverts...

    Look beyond the surface. Values, ambitions, moods, interests. That sort of thing.

    That's the thing.

    I think, in a lot of ways, when you look beyond the surface, you're not really like those five people.

    I think the way those five people influence who you are tends to be way more surface-level than not.

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.
    Yup. This is definitely true to a certain extent. We pick up a lot from the people we associate with. On the other hand, the people in our lives can change quickly, and with that, we can change quickly.

    I disagree with the literal statement though understand and agree to some extent with the sentiment.

    One is heavily influenced by one's close company, but the fabric of one's being is not dependent on the company one keeps.

    I disagree with the quote, if it means we become like the five people we hang out with. There are those who might, but it's not a rule.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
