You can learn a lot about people, whether individuals or groups, by watching what they do, seeing what rituals they keep. People say a lot about themselves in the habits they foster. A meticulously kept house, a perfectly trimmed lawn, elegantly set dinner table, clean finger nails, perfectly coifed hair: these things immediately tell you something about a person. Stacks of books everywhere, a cluttered car, piles of dishes in the sink, flies buzzing around empty (we hope!) pizza boxes on the kitchen counter. These things tell you about a person. Word choices, firmness of a handshake, position of the eyes during a conversation, all of these give us clues and cues about how a person thinks and engages the world around them.
