Judging character

Posted by derekbobo on January 23, 2009

I heard something I thought was interesting today so I thought I’d share. I was talking with a friend who mentioned a way to quickly assess someone and come up with a pretty accurate opinion and that is to use F-O-R-M.

You basically ask a few simple questions about:

F – Family
O – Their occupation
R – Their recreational activities/interests
M- Money

Obviously how you phrase these questions is important and they can’t be rapid fire, but I certainly found it interesting. I think most of us have probably used this technique at least inadvertently. I think it’s definitely a way to feel a person out.

I’m going to keep an eye out and see if I do this as I encounter new people. On the flip side I’m going to try and be conscious of it when I meet others.
