I don’t think you can ever be specific when it comes to people.  People aren’t specific.  They’re unique and crazy and wild and beautiful.  And their souls are all completely different from the next.
When you think about someone, most of the time it’s not about anything in particular.  You think on what you know about them, what you like about them, what makes them intimidating and interesting and special.
And knowing a person, truly knowing them, is a daunting challenge.  But to me, ‘daunting’ is not only a challenge, it’s a mystery.  It’s something that frightens, yet fascinates and excites me all at the same time.  Like the rush you get while climbing a steep hill to reach the top and catch the last glimpses of the sun as it sets over the horizon.  The climb is worth it, yet if you look over your shoulder, the height can scare you.  But nothing can stop you from reaching the top for the prize, the goal.
I love challenges.  And most of the people I have met who were ‘intimidating’ to most were ‘intriguing’ to me.  It made me want to talk to them and learn about them.  Their reservedness made them more noticeable to me.
The only thing that you can be specific about in a person is how uniquely different they are.  Don’t try to understand someone on your level.  They won’t match up to everything you are and everything you want.  They’re perfect in their own way.  Their specificity is specifically about who they are.

‘For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour.  What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment.’
- Viktor E. Fankl

    We will never know the meaning to life if the author meant as per a purpose, because there isn’t one. Life just is, is a perfectly acceptable answer, it has no need for a purpose, that would be machinery you are thinking of.
