While honesty and reliability of a person are liked by most of us, but they are hard to find. In our everyday life, we make friends according to our own choice that can vary. The choice depends a lot on our own qualities and when we find some like-minded persons we enjoy their company.
When it comes to personalities like politicians, sportspersons or actors we admire certain qualities that attracts us. Since in many cases they are not known to us personally, we look for certain traits that we are fond of. In the case of actors, we like their acting, way of speaking in public and also the social interactions.
Few may find the looks attractive and that's why they make choices accordingly. Few may like simplicity, few others may like fashionable people. For politicians, a lot depends on their public interaction and works. Ethics also play a very important role to make the choice, though in the present day politicians we hardly see any ethics.
For me, I stick to the honesty and politeness of a person when it comes to making a choice.
