I Want To Be Like You When I Grow Up

Do you role models, mentors and those who influenced you the most need to look like you and/or agree with you?

Regardless of your position, just briefly explain why.

I can say that the vast majority of those who has greatly influenced me, who are role models and those who has mentored me have looked like me. There are some who were not the same race or gender as me who has played an important part in my life, but I’ve noticed the tendencies of people including myself to be more influence by people who look like themselves or generally agreed with them.
