"...jealousy arises from the mistaken view that the accomplishments of your friend somehow detract rather than add to your own good." I've never thought of jealousy in that light, but I like it!

Honestly, this chapter seemed a bit obvious to me. I couldn't find anything to question or disagree with and of course examples from HBP and DH would be similar to examples from the other books.

I didn't get to read it today! But I can agree with the above. Shamefacedly I admit that I hung out with a couple of ugly girls in jr high because I thought they'd make me look good. I really didn't like them. (blush)

Looking back I know it happened when I was in school, and I can see it in my friends kids today. I don't really think they purposefully seek out others that will make them look better, but I think it just happens. Then again, I wasn't very social with those who didn't have the same interests as mine.

I wish that Luna's relationship had been explored in this essay. It's a little more complex than the others in the earlier books - especially because she seems to like Harry and his friends, and they seem standoffish of her.
