How long does of an encounter does it take for person’s characteristics to become grafted into part of your personality?
I suppose you must take into consideration both parties and the circumstances of the encounter.
I meet people, work with people, and if my time with them is long enough, involved enough for me to gauge parts of them…I’ll let a little grafting take place…I’ll invite the grafting and even promote it.
I’m conscious not to let the graft create a new named “rose” but there is a bit of noticable change.
Seek people to graft with and consider the positive aspects of accepting a little bit of their world in your life.
