Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking





I dont fully agree with it. I personally think that peoples behavior can tell us a lot about their character. We admire people who are modest, tactful and noble. Its nice when people are polite, when they respect the elderly and their parents. It isnt easy to get along with people who are unfair, rude, selfish and lazy. But on the other hand there are people who just want to produce a good impression on others and they put on a different face when they are alone. In my opinion if we want to know who we really are, we should look at what we do when no one is looking. Because when we are alone we tend to be more open and to do things we would never do in public.

However, character isnt something that should disappear because you are alone. Its something that should be the same no matter who you are with or what you are doing.

Very often I ask myself a question: What kind of person am I? I consider myself to be kind-hearted, honest, intelligent and reliable. I have high self-esteem. However I m a bit hot-headed.

I want to be a success in life and thats why I study hard at school. I never leave things half-done. I may say Im persistent and put much effort to achieve my aim. I want other people to respect me. I want to be strong and self-organized in front of them. Thats why I have to keep my emotions inside and although some of my classmates are jealous, I never show how offensive the things they say can sometimes be.

I love my family of course I may be a little naughty and rude but I always try to help my mother about the house I never lie to her. And I feel really great when my nearest and dearest are happy.

I always look forward ro meeting my friends. I relax and we have a lot of fun together. I highly appreciate friendship and good relations and try to be patient and understanding to my friends and to forgive their faults.

Of course there are no ideal people. We are all humans and nothing human is alien to us. Im not an ideal person either. Sometimes I can be rude, hot-tempered and disobedient. We should take the world as it is. But Im absolutely sure that we should try to improve it starting with ourselves. Every day you should work on yourself. And the efforts you make to become better will undoubtedly pay off.



1.When you first meet people what do you look at first. What does it tell you about the person?

Well, I think first I look at peoples clothes. You cant but agree that clothes are really important because they tell people a lot .Clothes can tell us about peoples well-being, about their nationality and sometimes about their profession.

Clothes have always carried messages about social status, personal taste as well as individual self-expression. We always want to impress people. But the first impression we make almost fully depends on what we wear and how we wear it. Manners and speech are noticed next and character only later. So its quite natural that clothes are really important . They say clothes make the man

2.What features of character do you value most in people?

I like it when people are kind-hearted and friendly. Such things as consideration for others, patience, tenderness, sincerity are also very important. What I really appreciate in people is honesty and a sense of humor.

3. What kind of people do you dislike?

I dont like people who are rude, unfriendly, selfish and tactless. The quality I hate in people is insincerity

4. What unpleasant qualities of your future spouse are you ready to put up with.

Well, I think my future wife will possess the qualities I admire. But there are no ideal people. And Im ready to put up with the drawbacks of her character. The only thing Im not going to put up with is insincerity.

18. Clothes, fashion.

Clothes Make the Man

Clothes have always carried messages about social status, personal taste as well as individual self-expression.

You cant but agree that clothes are really important because they tell people a lot about us and sometimes we judge people by what they are wearing. So people dressed in expensive clothes are thought to be wealthy and if a man is shabbily dressed hes obviously poor and probably homeless.

Clothes can tell us about peoples nationality. So, a man wearing a tartan kilt, a black long-sleeved velvet jacket, knee-length socks and a small black hat is surely a Scots-man

Sometimes clothes tell us about peoples occupation. If you work as a nurse, a doctor, a police-officer or a fire-fighter you have to wear a standard uniform.

I personally think that the main thing about clothes is to be appropriately dressed for the occasion. When I go out with my friends at the weekend I prefer to wear casual clothes I feel more comfortable in, such as jeans, a T-shirt or a loose shirt with flat shoes or trainers. When I go for a meal in a restaurant or to a wedding party I like to be smartly dressed in something elegant and stylish and to look very classy and chic. And if I had to attend a formal occasion such as a job interview I would wear a smart fitted costume. There is much discussion nowadays about a school uniform. Some of my



classmates want to abolish the uniform at school. . But I think that we have to accept the fact it is necessary to wear it.

School is a place where students acquire knowledge. Its not a playground, a beach or a ballroom. And its better for the students to spend time listening to the teacher and learning something than examining the latest trends of fashion.

Everyone in my class is really fashionable. They spend a lot of time talking about the clothes and jewelry they are going to spend money on. Some of my classmates have cut their hair into strange shapes, pierced their ears. They wear a lot of cheap jewelry. They say they show off their independence, feelings and values. I dont know if they are right.

Fashion does play a part in my life, but Im not really obsessed with it. I do want to look smart but I wouldnt describe myself as a fashion victim. Fashion comes and does and looking clean and tidy is more important than looking stylish. I hate it when people dress alike because they buy clothes in chain stores. I prefer hand-made or design clothes, in these clothes you really feel you are an individual and you can look really extravagant.

The main factor which influences me when I go shopping for clothes is the price; I also pay attention to the color of the garment I want to buy and try to match it with clothes I already own.

By the way, most people are influenced by fashion in a number of ways. For instance, they decorate their houses according to fashion; go on holidays to fashionable places and so on.

 

Everyone wants to be attractive. What is your idea of being attractive?

One of the Chekhovs characters said that everything must be beautiful in a person face, dress, spirit and mind. We always want to impress people. But the first impression we make almost fully depends on what we wear and how we wear it. Manners and speech are noticed next and character only later. So its quite natural that clothes are really important. They say clothes make the man . (Clothes)

But we dont mean good looks alone when we speak about someones beauty. We want also to see as Chekhov wrote, a beautiful spirit and mind in a person. His / her character and actions are extremely important. But what is to be done if the face isnt so beautiful? Should we take this fact too seriously? Of course not!. Besides, as an American proverb goes, Beauty is a very fine thing, but you cant live on it. On the other hand a modest, kind and honest person is respected and liked by everybody. One good deed deserves another, says an English proverb. I dont think

there is beauty in a person who has good looks but doesnt respect old people. And those who wear fashionable clothes are not beautiful at all if their conduct in the street and other public places isnt good. There is an old English proverb about such people : Clothes dont make the man. Real beauty means much more than a perfect body and nice clothes. To my mind such traits of character as diligence, humanity, respectfulness, sincerity courage make a person attractive. And besides you should be modest of course. A modest man never talks much of himself. He doesnt try to have special privileges and rights , he is always critical about his own shortcomings and respects people around him

In conclusion Id like to say that a man is a creator of his own happiness, fortune and personality. All of us are born sinless with a crystal soul like a blank sheet of paper, but with different levels of potential.

Probably most of us are full of drawbacks because we all are humans and nothing human is alien to us. But every day you should work on yourself. You should develop a positive attitude to life and people. The efforts which you make to become better will no doubt pay off. Your life will brighten and there will be new colors.

I . Read the following opinions on clothing and fashion.

Phil.

All my classmates say that Im trendy. I enjoy wearing stylish clothes. I like to look smart and attractive. We cant go through life with the same hairstyle or make-up. Its very important to follow fashion. I hate it when people dress alike, because they buy clothes in chain stores I prefer hand-made or design clothes. My classmates say Im materialistic, but its not a sin, is it? Sometimes I turn up in something really extravagant. When you are up with fashion you feel you are an individual.

Tracey.

I dont care what other people wear. More than that I dont care what I wear. My mum buys clothes for me in a chain store or a car boot sale. She says that only the rich can afford following fashion and wearing trendy clothes. I prefer casual things- jeans, T-shirts, home-made sweaters. And its a problem for me to get out of jeans into something more stylish, but I dont care. My elder brothers friends have cut their hair into strange shapes, pierced their ears and wear a lot of jewelry. They say they show off their independence, feelings and values. I dont know if they are right. If I were older I would probably do the same.

Kate.

Everyone in my class is really fashionable. They spend a lot of time talking about the clothes and jewelers that they are going to spend their money on. Many friends of mine think Im boring and untrendy and I feel out sometimes. But frankly speaking fashion is not very important to me. Fashion comes and goes and looking clean and tidy is more important than looking stylish. I prefer clothes which are traditional in design that I feel comfortable in. I think that following fashion does not necessarily mean having good taste. If I had a lot of money I would buy clothes which are classical in design because they never go out of fashion, though I would rather buy video cassettes or some interesting books.

II. Which of these viewpoints on fashion is closer to yours?

a) Fashion is my passion. b) Clothes do not make the man but c) I dont care what I wear

I enjoy I like it when people I dont care

I hate it when My friends More than that

I prefer But frankly speaking I think

Its not a sin Fashion. Its not a problem

If I had To follow fashion Besides

When If I had If I had

Im sure Its more important Who cares if

To be honest
