Getting to know someone

From a comment I made in shadesong's journal about getting to know people deeply.

One way I know that I'm falling into some one/thing is that I start trying to find everything I can about the person, place, or thing. I find out what the person is interested in and learn about that. I find the history of a place and read up about it. Then, the best lesson I learned about ten years ago, I shut up about it. Just because I've learned the periphery and what it looks like someone is interested in, it's just a shadow. I have a background to understand a bit more about what those things mean to that person. I still need to get their take on it. What is it that they find so fascinating about the impressionistic painters? Why gerbils?
