It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

My best friend in elementary and middle school went to different high schools. She became a cheerleader at her school and when I went to her school events I found that I did not like her cheerleader friends. They were different than our grade school friends.
She also had catty college friends. I believe that she hung out with these girls because they had money, dressed nice, and had cars to travel to places while in college. 3 of these girls were in my friends wedding. Two of them I really did not care for... I was a bridesmaid also. I left her wedding reception early because I did not like the company. My friend took it personally and I never admitted to her that I felt her friends were catty and that was the reason why I left early- not because of anything that she did. Later we have gone out to eat and I try to keep our friendship going. I still like her as a person very much.
