Case study one: A couple, dressed in full black, spiky hair, pierced lips, tats and makeup. They turn out to be the nicest and most polite people that I've seen in a while.
Two: A loud-talking engineer, with a customized leather jacket, and exuberates confidence. He is the most introspective person I know.
Three: A pretty-boy construction worker, perfect face except a deep cut below one eye. His wound is just a peek at a whole life as a roller coaster ride of emotions.
Four: A devout Christian, conservative, caring. He would do just about anything to get what he wants out of life.
Five: A med schooler to-be, poised, passionate, think Christina Yang (actually has the same hair too). She'd have as rockstar a moment with a pair of drumsticks as she would with a scalpel.
Six: A concert violinist, has the potential to study worldwide. He knows more about quantum mechanics than most of your BS, and can beat out any Biochemist for med school application.
Seven: A volleyball player, strong, fearless, gazelle-like. She's actually exactly what you'd expect from her.
It's amazing what happens when you open up to people.
