Do you judge people based on how they live? Or type of housing?

Sometimes people do this because either they were raised to look at people differently or becuase they are just judgemental anyways. So if you meet someone and after you get to know them....you find out they live in either public housing, mobile homes, trailer parks, or with relatives as adults.....do you judge them? Is this fair? Have you been judged this way? I know I have when I was in college...being from Kentucky....I got the most stupidest questions about how we lived down here. I also found out how people really tick when it comes to judging people. So do you think these things are important to whether or not you want to continue to know someone?

Homes are a status symbol, people who want you to judge them, you don't have to think about doing it, live in nice homes. Its a sign of wealth. If somebody lives in a grass shack or a mansion doesn't always mean that's who they are in their social status. Some people don't want a big house, we travel and if I never have another mortgage it won't bother me.

I don't judge a person by their housing, although my judgment sometimes is clouded by how organized or disorganized their houses look. I don't mind how small or shabby someone's house is as long as the insides are well organized and clean.
