Once in a great while, Mekkar might ask a person's opinions he trusts for an honest analysis & information regarding him from the viewpoint of that person. It serves two purposes at the same time – one is accuracy of perception and observation awareness (some people call it – intuition). The second is Mekkar is receiving useful data of how other individuals see him and the impressions that he might unknowingly exhibit. That knowledge can be valuable for Mekkar to improve in areas where he is having difficulty or weak areas in need of improvement – Since no one is perfect! Just another one of the lessons Mekkar learned from Aslak the Shaman long ago while on a reindeer trek.
