A very good essay. I think we evaluate people based on what we are like or DO like, ourselves. We're disappointed when we find out differently. It's hard for us to conceive that others may NOT be coming from the same place. Marilyn

good grief, but you are knowledgeable! Are you head of marketing for a company? Or are you a speaker at meetings, or both? Pres, of a company?
I was not familiar with the halo effect, but am about at the end of my rope with the tarnished halo of AT&T.
Your story has a good lesson for those females out there looking - which is not me, thank goodness.
A good, informative write.

    Hi Pome,

    Thank you so much for your terrific review and rating, my friend. No, not a corporatist, just a seasoned psychotherapist who enjoys sharing what I have been privileged to learn. Much more of an informative advocate, I suppose. LOL Aaaak! AT&T. Sorry to hear you are wrangling with them. Interesting, isn't it--that customers, without whom their cash cow corporation could not exist! are viewed as "tje enemy? Strange times... Some computer parts companies actually post on their websites "don't bother us" with concerns or questions. Amazing. Thanks again, my friend. Jan :-_

This was a good example of how to describe the Halo Effect and can see how many could get involved in a person like this. Then, you have the known bad guy and the girl wants to change him to be better. Is there anyone you can trust?

    Hi LaFrance,

    Thank you very much for your great review. I'm glad to know you found this well written and informative. Yup. Not at all sure why women want to "fix" guys. I only work on helping client fix themselves. LOL Thanks again. Jan :-)

WOW, great read, clearly written and very educational. I believe nearly everyone has had similar experiences, with varying consequences, from shocking to all in between. Nevertheless that can damage our trust in people and make us become less open, spontaneous and receptive. I used to be a psycho-/spiritual therapist and am all too familiar with what you write about. I believe it is of essential worth to learn to listen more and better to our innate intuition, inner voice that is always there to guide us and 'overrule; the "ego-self" (and mind) which is socially and culturally 'programmed', if you know what I mean?
Indeed, be aware, without losing faith in people. Know you true self is the key to less delusion, heartbreak, etc. Thanks for sharing this wise story, plus elaborate author notes.

    Hi Sue,

    Thanks so much, my friend. Ah ha! Another analytic therapist in the midst! Indeed. Culturally programmed by patriarchal nonsense. ie., "intuition is unreliable." (See my release today entitled, "Trust Your Intuition," and my responses.) Sad, how threatening feminine dynamics are to some folks, isn't it? Pathetic, really. Thanks again, my friend. Jan :-)

reply by SueZen on 18-Apr-2019
    And I thank you for super response to my review and I totally agree with all you mention! Indeed, very sad how threatening feminine dynamics are to some folks (even to some women) - yes, pathetic really, but I see/feel a shift in people's 'awareness' and the rising up of woman all over the world, standing tall and strong in their own right, purpose, etc. I look forward to reading and responding to your latest release in due course dear Jan. Happy Easter, love Susan x

This shows very clearly in an informative way why, if something looks too good to be true, it usually is. It is an act of self-preservation to be wary about people until they reveal more of themselves and trust can build on reality rather than image. There will, unfortunately, always be types who have dark secrets that will be exposed like a bolt from the blue. And it is also most unfortunate that we inhibit true openness in really knowing each other when barriers are put up, often because we have been damaged by unexpected behaviour from a loved or trusted one.

Hello Jan,
Timely and essential information to share with readers. I imagine that to an extent, the majority of people are often swayed by the "halo effect" as a person's social status offers expectations, when in reality, those expectations do not equate to reality. I know I have...
Thank you for sharing!

For sure - be very careful - even tho everyone else thinks this person is so perfect for you - my brother was killed in a car accident and his widow quickly was urged into marrying this "fine" Christian young man - well, that was simply not true he was not a good person. it went badly. Thank the Lord she got out of that and married a great fellow who she was with for many years until he died of cancer.
Quick judgment can get you in trouble.
Thanks for the well-spoken caution. People need to take heed. And counseling with a solid pastor who really is a true believer and pays attention to God's direction - is a good idea if things get serious.
Good story.

This is a very interesting read for me. I have been reading some things here on Fan Story recently that have started to give me a lot of concern. I know that I have fallen victim myself into this halo affect many times where I want to believe people care about me, but they really don't. It is unfortunate, that we want to trust people at times in our life, and we give people the benefit of the doubt. And then they mislead you. What I have come to learn as a loner is mostly what people want is a short amount of attention for their own gain. I have had it repeated over and over throughout my life. Most people care about their own problems. They mostly put themselves first. There are very few that care for other's well being. Those people in my life are few and far between. When you do find them especially in this day and age it is difficult to vet them especially if you have never met them in real life. So I continue to live my life alone. I find that it is easier and a lot less dangerous that way. Thank you for explaining it in a more intellectual in-depth way. Cheers, Fonda

I like this Healingmuse and the message conveyed in this. I think that we should spend considerable time with someone to really find out who they truly are. Some people will show their true fruits from the very beginning. Others will hide them if its something that they think you shouldn't know. This person apparently didn't think that she would find out. It's best the way it happened here. It happened before she got herself in to deep. I'm not much on pretentious people. I think that you should be who you are and when change is required which none of us is exempt, then, it should be sought out. I enjoyed this well written work. Well done!

A well written and researched piece on the follow-up notes. Nice use of a concrete example. This concept is used a lot on Lifetime movies. Beware of good-looking men who seem too good to be true.

    Hi Spitfire,

    Thank you so much for your stellar review and star-studded sixer! Please forgive my delay in responding as life has thrown me some unexpected things to deal with that have had me off-site for a few days. I am humbly honored to know you found this piece to be worthy of such high distinction. Thanks so much again. Jan :-)

reply by Spitfire on 20-Apr-2019
    I know exactly what you mean like life throwing you unexpected things. That's exactly what my last four posts have been about.
