Do you agree or disagree:
people can learn about a person from the books and movies the person likes.
First, if you know what kinds of books or movies a person likes, you can learn about his or her interests. For example, if a person’s favorite movie and book genre is science fiction, you know that she is interested and knowledgeable about technology and science. If you meet somebody who loves watching French films, you can guess that he knows French and is probably a Francophile of some sorts. Knowing somebody’s interests is a way you can know somebody better.
Also, you can discern an individual’s personality from the types of movies and books he or she prefers. Depending upon the genre, you can tell if a person is serious or humorous. My brother, for example, is one of the funniest people I know. One look at his movie collection and you can tell that he has a good sense of humor. Name any major comedy from the past twenty years, and chances are that he has the DVD. My sister, on the other hand, is very creative and artistic. One look at her DVD rack or bookcase and you can tell she thinks outside the box. She definitely has the strangest collection of interesting books and creative movies.
Finally, you can learn about person based on the books and movies he or she likes, because knowing somebody’s interests is a good way to have a conversation with a person. I travel a lot, and I often strike up a conversation with passengers sitting next to me on the train or plane by talking with them about books and movies. Usually the conversation starts with small talk about the latest movies or current books we are reading. Then we go into a more detailed conversation based on some shared ideas about a certain movie or book. Through this conversation, which was started by talking about movies and books, I can learn more about a person.
There are many ways to get to know somebody. Knowing a person’s interests is a way to understanding their personality and it also helps facilitate conversation between people. One of the easiest ways to learn about a person is to know about their taste in movies and books.
