Friends can be classified into three basic kinds according to the way they treat others. The first type is friends who are bossy. In a group of friends, they consider themselves self-centered and want everybody to obey them. For example, when they go out with their friends, they always want to be the people who decide where to go, what to do or what to eat. In discussions or arguments, they will strain every nerve to win without caring others’ feelings and thoughts. If they are wrong, they are also too arrogant to admit their mistakes. Therefore, they have few friends and their friendship often does not last long. The second type is friends who understand and respect others. They know how to listen to others’ ideas as well as raise their voice. Rarely do they argue with their friends or impose their opinions on others. As a result, they usually have lifelong friendship. The last type is friends who depend too much on others. These friends cannot make up their mind and always rely on their friends’ decision. For instance, when their friends ask them what they would like to do, they will answer “I do not know; it is up to you” or “I will listen to you”. Because they are too dependent, others will be soon fed up with being friends with them; so their friendship cannot last long. In conclusion, if we can distinguish three kinds of friends above, we easily choose those who get on well with us.
