Same, same?

Yesterday, over lunch with a colleague of mine (yes, i’m not THAT antisocial) we were talking about office politics, the working world and people in general. In the midst of the conversation, he said, “But, we like people who mirror ourselves and what we believe in.” I took a moment to wonder. Do we?

Some say friendship is born when one says “OMG! I thought I was the only one!” Do you foster friendships that way? Does differences push us further away from another or is it just in our mindset? Why then, do some say, opposites attract?

Food for thought.
