Secret

"Sometimes when I meet a person I like, I tell them a secret they don't know me well enough to be told. It lets me judge their potential as a friend."

Mohsin Hameed, Moth Smoke

Yeah, i often employ this technique in practice myself. It is a good indicator of other person's capability of being your friend.

I do this too. Show them the worst and see if they can stick around for the best.
