    Trouble can call out a person’s best qualities.

    Trouble can call out a person’s best qualities.

    Can I take ‘call out’ to mean ‘inspire’ or ‘arouse’?

    Thanks!

    Re: Trouble can call out a person’s best qualities.

    Where did you find that sentence?

    The usual expression is 'Trouble can bring out a person's best qualities'.
