Always use is_a? or kind_of? over instance_of? ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

While all three methods looks similar, is_a? or kind_of? will consider the whole inheritance chain (superclasses and included modules), which is what you normally would want to do. instance_of?, on the other hand, only returns true if an object is an instance of that exact class youโ€™re checking for, not a subclass.
