I spent 3 years at LASALLE training in Musical Theatre. If you've ever been to a performing arts school, you might understand just how much drama, cattiness and undercutting goes on at any one time. I had gut feelings abut people when I first entered, but my prerogative was always to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. By Year 3 though, right before we graduated, my intuitions were either completely turned on their head (because, of course, people have the capacity to change) or just confirmed. You can really tell a lot about a person by the way they handle the curveballs that life throws at them. Unfavourable circumstance, in particular, can really shed light on a person's true colours.
