    Hi everybody.

    What does fit the profile mean?

    How can we in other words say what's the point? and to make sth happen?


    Thank you

    Mostly used in crime fiction, but also used in any context that involves finding the right person for a job. The police/recruiters think 'What sort of person would do this?', and then look for someone who 'fits the profile'.

    "What's the point?" could be, depending on context, Why? Why bother? What's the use? What [possible] use is that? To what end? To what purpose?

    "to make something happen" is to make all the necessary arrangements for it to happen. Often used in the business world. A manager does not produce much, but s/he makes things happen.
