Whenever the topic of the Djinn has come up in talks with Egyptian friends, they seem to view these beings as extremely real, perhaps like gangster rock stars. Evidently, they are not all or even mostly malevolent. But, they seem to place a premium on their time, rather like friendlier natives of Manhattan. I think that most folks who know a lot about them tend to steer clear, but the trick seems not to worship them or burden them with confidence or trust, but to look up to their vast wisdom and show oneself to be worthy of their time and assistance, sort of like contestants on _Shark Tank_. It seems that the challenge is for the human to grow in maturity and personal discretion as he looks for ways to make it fun for the Djinn to help him with his magical projects. Making friends with a dragon is not impossible, but it is easy to bore a being who already has so much and so much to offer. They seem to view most humans as foolish, that is, having a tendency to try to use powers to which they lack a solid grasp. If you think that you could have a productive interaction with one of the more benevolent Djinn, I would ask ones personal HGA or ones tutelary deity for guidance.
