Living Up To It

Lets say a friend tells you that another friend of theirs is so funny and that you would like them. When you meet your friends friend for the first time, are you more likely to be extra skeptical of their funniness in search of why your friend thinks they are great, or are you more likely to be swayed by your friends suggestion of their greatness and gloss over some clunker jokes or weird statements and just laugh and love it?

Does suggesting that someone is great bring on more scrutiny or more acceptance of greatness? Probably both I would guess.
