Out of Character Pdf Review:
One might be surprised how someone who is so perfect can turn out to be a liar or a cheat or how can such a person be a hypocrite. The author answers this question by giving his own theory on human behavior. He says that humans do not have traits. What he means to say is that a person is neither good or bad or anything of the sort. The way a person behaves shifts depending on the circumstances around him. Every person has a sinner living inside him and the time that this sinner comes out depends on the situation and what the person is facing. He gives examples such as of Tiger Woods and explains how he, being such a family person, ended up cheating on his wife with his mistress. No one around him ever saw it coming but the author says that everyone has that part hidden inside them comes out at any time.
