Life’s Lessons: The Three Types of People

Ateacher shows three toys to a student and asks the student to find out the differences.

Life’s Lessons: The Three Types of People


All the three toys seemed to be identical in their shape, size, and material. After keenly observing them, the student finds holes in the toys. The first toy had holes in the ears. The second had holes in ear and mouth, while the third toy had a hole in one ear. The student then puts a needle in the ear hole of the first toy. The needle comes out from the other ear. In the second toy, when the needle was put in the ear it  came out of the mouth. 

When the needle was inserted in the third toy, it did not come out. The first toy represents those people around you who give an impression that they are listening to you, all your things and care for you. But they just pretend to do so. After listening, as the needle comes out from the next ear, the things you said to them by counting on them are gone. So be careful while you are speaking with this type of people around you, who do not care for you. The second toy represents those people who listen to all your things and gives an impression that they care for you. But as in the toy, the needle comes out from the mouth. These people will use your things and the words you tell them against you by telling it to others and bringing out the confidential issues for their own purpose.

Moral: The needle does not come out in the third toy. These kinds of people will keep the trust you have in them. They are the ones who you can count on
