George finds a kindred spirit in Slim. Although George has Lennie their conversation is very limited. Slim seems to be one that can understand human nature and share similar insights to life and work as George. For Slim, George has a similar disposition. THey are both reflective men and they get along well. Slim is an introspective gentleman. He understands the politics around the farm and the sensitivities that exist between George and Lennie. In turn George finds another guy with similar intellect and sense of life.
