What defines class? Or what makes a person classy? Darshini and I were discussing this today on a walk.
Before I bring up some of the answers we found, I have to say I reserve the right to be politically incorrect and as biased as I want to be on my blog. We know that good taste shouldn't be defined by someone; people shouldn't be slotted into categories or classes, one person is not better than another because of his or her activities, that we shouldn't like a person more because he or she is physically attractive.
And yet we are incorrigible, aren't we when it comes to judging and classifying people?
To get back, after happily discussing a great many people we know, we thought that some things could define the few that we thought as people with class.
People who don't push and pull, who don't yell (mostly), who treat everyone the same, who don't look over your shoulder while talking to you; people who don't crib and complain a lot, people who are good humored mostly , are not afraid to spend money...
But overall its a feeling that they give out- they accept and know themselves and know where they are going. They neither puff themselves up nor demean themselves in any way. They have a nice feel about them.
Any other definitions?
