Psychologists say that the weaker sex “tends to invest more in maintaining friendly relations”, because ladies are more likely to meet with friends for a joint interesting leisure.
Strong women, perhaps, become best friends – even for men. Why? Because they are much less prone to mawkishness, give honest and direct advice, encourage independence, listen to the needs of friends, cover the rear and support them in every possible way. Therefore, it is not surprising that such women are valuable companions and even partners. And they themselves choose as their friends certain types of people who will supplement them and make their life more intensely.
Whom do strong women prefer to surround themselves with?
Probably everyone needs at least one such friend who will not allow us to become a grumpy and boring person. Life – a thing serious and at times too ordinary, but this should not deprive us of the right to joy and fun. We need someone who will remind us that there is a place for humor in life. Wit and humor – this is the type of person. If it is in your environment, then you are lucky. He always feels your emotional discomfort or despair and at the right time heals you with a shock dose of humor and laughter.
2. Polygraph Man
Some people know how to feel lies with polygraph accuracy. They are not always 100% right, but pretty close to the truth. In addition to such innate abilities, the polygraph man is also a terrific friend. Combine his inner strength with deductive qualities, and you will get a close person who can look at the world and perceive it real and honest. He will not let other people deceive you or be deceived.
3. A Just Friend
Many people, not just women, are completely unconnected – it’s just an integral part of their personality. However, there are situations when either we, or someone else, should somehow react to disorder or abuse. A fair friend demonstrates in words and deeds that righteous anger is normal. Similarly, this friend unerring senses the difference between righteous and irrational, gross anger. A person who is keenly aware of justice gives you an important lesson: reasonable anger is sometimes necessary, and this emotion can and should be used.
4. Full contrast
Often we surround ourselves with people with similar views and outlook. This social model can be observed even from school times. Hooligans communicated with hooligans, exemplary girls with exemplary girls, and botanists with botanists. But we do not always have to look for friends only among like-minded people – this catastrophically narrows our view of the world and does not allow us to develop comprehension. At best, this leads to ignorance. In the worst case, it generates intolerance and anger. In friendly relations, the person-the complete opposite (even a marginal person, if you want) is someone who differs from you in everything, which, ironically, makes him a potentially ideal friend. He not only has the ability to show us other points of view (to the question of tolerance), but he can open in our character and completely new features.
5. Human-moral support
When difficult times come in life, we can harass and eat ourselves, analyzing and criticizing our defeats and failures. We negate self-esteem and kill self-esteem in this process. At such times we really need someone who will give a magic kick, laugh at our failures and inspire us to move forward. Even the strongest women need an optimistic voice from time to time. A person-moral support is a friend who is able to embrace you and say confidently: “Remember your strengths”. And if you are not able to remember them, then he will tell you about them himself.
