It is well known that the sex of humans is divided into two categories-female and male, so are animals. From the perspective of human’s thinking patterns and vision. The basic characteristics of the female gender characteristic are significantly highlighted by the beautiful features of the original line of the female, the action of the behavior and the fine identity of the tone of the voice, etc. Men, by contrast, represent adjectives such as "strong", "powerful" and "masculine". However, two contradictory qualities or tendencies that also exist in the same thing, for instance, in terms of people, there are good and evil, beauty and ugliness, inconsistent and good or bad, and so on. If you look at the same thing from different angles, the result is different. Human’s greed for material, desire for lust, the pursuit of vanity and other social factors lead to the formation of two sides of the body, that is, the combination of firmness and softness. Strong people have a soft side while soft people can also present rigid and unyielding. In general, everyone has two sides to his character since man is an unsatisfied animal. There exists an individual itself between individual and individual, which is the root of why people have two-sided.
