Are we defined by our friendships or rather our friendships are mirrors of who we are?

That is very interesting in a humiliating kind of way. But it is hard to know people unless we down a 8 (or 16?) kilos of salt with them. Or so the Russian proverb goes.
The salt part seems ridiculous to me, what kind of way is that to judge a person. As to his wife, if she were expected to perform some social function for the company it might be relevant.
I think, salting food before tasting it might be interpreted as a negative trait. Modifying something before even knowing what it is... I find such behaviour bizarre as well. My own father seasons his food without tasting and it drives me insane.
Sherry I never got the salt thing either but he might of had something concerning what kind of woman a man chooses as a partner. kallini that's a good point - he made an exception though 'cause the underling he admired most did it.
There must be a consolation for whatever test one "fails" to get a job, there is a good chance that one is not really "good" for the company that is hiring. After all, the idea is to find the best match. We choose people right for us, tricks or not.
I happen to agree with you, that our friends and our company tell only so much about us. There is always more than appears on the surface. I don't know the artist's name, the site where I take pictures works as a bookmarking only without credit.
