Interpretation: Chung Fu is about effective cooperation and communication with people around you. To do this successfully you have to take some time to profoundly understand their characters. Preconceptions, prejudices or any other factor should be put aside or receptivity will be obstructed. Once you profoundly understand one’s character, you will be able to work on gaining his trust. Chung Fu is also a warning this should be done for mutual benefit. A failure to fulfill this need for sincerity and honesty will block any progress.
