    What does "a certain kind" means?

    Could you please tell me the meaning of "a certain kind of man"?

    it appears in this sentense


    "The mist lifted and the trees stepped back a bit as if to make the way easier for a certain kind of man"



    Thank you for your kindness

    Re: What does "a certain kind" means?

    i don't know what "kind" means in the sentence

    is "a certain kind of man" expresses some negative thinking of the speaker?

    anyway, thank you Yuriya
