Inspiration! On friendship and vulnerability

A little while ago I read about a study showing that people will consider a competent person more likeable and trustworthy if they spill coffee on themselves.  The most obvious explanation seems to be that when someone shows a bit of a human foible, we all feel a bit more comfortable around them.  After all, we're all just faking our way through life, so it's nice to see that someone else has similar imperfections to you.

Here's a little video from the School of Life basically telling us the same thing. Thanks, School of Life!


"We can only get close by revealing things that, in the wrong hands, would be capable of inflicting appalling humiliation on us."
