Average of the 5 people you surround yourself with

I heard the other day this quote from the motivational speaker Jim Rohn.  “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

If you think about this and when you spend your time and the people you are with its a sobering thought.  I work in a team of 5, and so between us does that mean we average one another out during the week?  I wonder about this more as well as I find negative traits are easier to pick up than the positive behaviours.

If thats the average during the week, I wonder if at the weekend you then change and become the average of your family and freinds?   Or do the two average out?

Either way it makes me think this maybe the reason so many people seem conflicted and really unsure who they are.  I feel over the last 6-12 months that my personality has changed and I need to reset myself and revert back to my belief system and what I feel is my true self.   Unsure how I do this but I feel its needed for my own piece of mind.
