Pattern in social intelligence

 Since social intelligence is both tricky and vital, do you have any advice for types of patterns and characteristics to look for?

Remember the following: people never do something just once. If in their past they screwed someone else over, or completely misread a situation, or displayed some paranoia, you can be sure it will recur and you might be the next target. People have patterns of behavior. That is human nature. Yes, we can change and alter ourselves, but only with effort. Most people don't like the effort. I noticed in reading this excellent bio of Howard Hughes how people kept working for him even though he had this awful track record. They thought in person he had changed. People don't usually change and rarely do something just once.
