God doesn't  base his opinion of people on their personality or appearance, as the world tends to do. Instead, God looks upon the heart. He informs Samuel of his plan to replace King Saul with David, a man after His own heart.

1 Samuel 16:6-7New King James Version (NKJV)

So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him!”

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees;[a] for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
