"You are, in fact, very much like a chameleon, in that you change emotional and attitudinal colors depending upon the people to whom you are most exposed. If you have a particular social circle, work with a particular group, go to a particular church, or belong to a particular club, you will more and more come to think, walk, talk, act and behave very much like those people. This is why you have heard it said, "Like father, like son," and "Like mother, like daughter." Our parents form our first and often, our most powerful, reference group during our formative years."
