Having an incantation of repayment

Topic: Trustworthy


September 14, 2016

What does having an incantation of repayment have to do with being trustworthy?

Bella - USA



I'm sorry, but I don't know what you mean by "an incantation of repayment." There are several possible meanings to the phrase.

So-called friend scammed her

Topic: Stealing


August 27, 2016

I sent money to a friend in Africa to help him get a visa to come to the united states. In a period of six months I sent him several thousands of dollars. I also went to Africa and spent 3 weeks with him. As soon as I got back to the US he took all the money for the visa and got married on it with his scammer girlfriend. He paid for the wedding and bought wedding rings with my money. Then, kept calling me telling me he was sorry and didn't know why he did it. Telling me he married her on a condition, etc. Will this person ever pay for stealing my money. Even though he said he was sorry and asked me to forgive him. Is their marriage cursed and will it ever last between them because of this action on their part to swindle and defraud me.

Carolyn - USA



You were certainly trying to be kind to help out your friend. However, his character was not very good, such that he took advantage of your kindness.

The fact that he is continuing to contact you and asking for forgiveness may be an effort to get on your good side and perhaps ask for more help.

I believe that you can kiss your money good-bye and chalk this up to a lesson learned.

He may have been influenced by his girlfriend, or they may have planned it together. At the very least, they deserve each other. Perhaps their marriage is cursed.

Unfortunately, you always have to be suspicious of the intentions of some people.

Best wishes for a good life with good friends.

Factors that affect your character

Topic: Definition


April 21, 2016

What are the factors that affect your character positive and that affect your character negative?

Kgosietsile - USA



Character consist of learned behavior traits. You learn that it is beneficial to you to be honest, helpful, and conscientious.

But some people are taught to be dishonest, lazy, and such. They could be taught that from parents or friends. Having a reputation of negative character can result in losses. Often people with poor character traits learn to improve their character.

Good character is behaving in an acceptable manner in society. Basic rules of character are to do your best, don't harm others, and be honest.

It is important for students and children to have good character so that they will mature into being outstanding citizens.

Why do people act in extremes?

Topic: Extremes in Good Character


March 21, 2016

Why do people act in the extremes mentioned in your article? In particular being determined. What could be the root of that?

Thank you so much.

Mari - South Africa



Although a person can be taught to be determined in seeking to a achieve a goal, quite often much of it is a personality trait, especially if the person is extremely determined.

You can see this in children who are very stubborn and want their own way or want to get something.

Being determined to achieve a goal is an admirable trait unless it is extreme. Sometimes a person may want something so bad that he or she becomes ruthless in trying to get it or simply doesn't know when to quit.

It is an interesting characteristic. You can learn from observing people to try to see the root of their actions.

Topic: General


August 10, 2015

the formation and success in business is not solely on the availability of money but on character discuss

John - Nigeria



Success in a business is usually based on the relationship and trust that the customers have in those running the business. Character traits such as integrity and honesty are very important in keeping customers.

When starting a new business, investors need to know the entrepreneur has good character traits, such that he or she will follow through in implementing the business idea.

When was article originally written?

Topic: Resources


March 24, 2015

I see that you revised this article in January 2014, however can you provide me with the original date so that I can correctly cite my reference.

Thank You

Robyn - USA



The "Character Resources" page was originally done on 6 December 2002 and last revised on 24 April 2012.

However, I think you are referring to another article. "Ambition" was originally written in 29 May 2007, and "Social Character Traits" was originally written on 8 February 2007.

I hope that helps.
