Are you the kind of person who judges people when you meet them at first hand? The kind of person that just has the instinct that the person he/she had just met is selfish, or stupid or even a slob? People sometimes can be really pretentious and have the ability to hide their true persona behind their looks, are you a person who sees through them? --You tell me--(^^,)

I had an experience with this before, a friend of mine introduces me to his friend which to me not so appealing, I thought of him as one war-freak type and i didnt bother to get to befriend him and all. BUT I was proven wrong when we get along together, he was the total opposite of how I viewed him at first. Now, I learn to be much careful not to be harsh in judgments.

Oh. Well i hope the lesson was learned. LOL. Sometimes we tend to give out that kind of judgment on people and they tend to be wrong because that's is what the character that are showing to us in the first place right? Thanks for responding(^^,)

Yes I think I am a good judge of character. Some times I see things that I wish I didn't see in people. I believe that those people that can hide certain things in their personalty usually let their guard down sooner or later and the truth comes out. I knew a woman that was trying to claim an injury to her back, She would walk very slow and limp at times. The funny thing is that her limp would change, first it was on the right side then it was on the left.Then there was the day that she was seen walking at a fast pace through the parking lot to her car.

I think it's part of human nature to make assumptions based on physical appearance. The real issue is when people stick with those assumptions, regardless of how the person proves them otherwise, or when a person refuses to even interact with the person. I always make assumptions, to be honest, but I do make an effort to get to know the person further. I'm usually correct, though. ;)

I know most of the time it is normal to form an immediate opinion about someone at the first time of meeting. I would rather get to know a person better before I judge them. People can be shy and tense, or in a bad mood, and this can affect the way they seem at first. When they are more relaxed or in a better mood they may be quite different. I may meet someone who seems to be very nice at first and after getting to know that person I may find out that they are not really as nice as they first appeared to be. I would never judge anyone by appearance or by their clothes. Its what is inside their head and their heart that matters most.

That's good to know! We should get to know a person first, we don't who or what they'll turn out to be! Thanks for responding!(^^,)

Yes..i am that kind of a person, but only just a look would not help me to determine who they are, i need to hear them talk either to me or anyone around me atleast a few sentences and i can judge him or her very easily...and in most cases, my predictions turns out true...when u have a lot of experience in life, it is easier to identify a person's character just by looking at them

Well some people like yourself have that kind of ability. Don't you think it is quite rude or judgmental? Don't you want to know that person first?(^^,)
