Are you a good judge of people? are you easily able to identify what kind of a person someone is when you firs meet them? or do you take time to get to know how someone is?

I am not a good judge of people. I am rather emotional and immature. To me, each person is 'innocent until proven guilty' i.e. good until they have harmed me.

I have pretty good instincts by nature about people. I am synical by nature and this has proved to be somewhat helpful. Honestly, I trust nobody until they have proven to be okay. I have been right many times and it has saved some friends a lot of heartbreak. I have been wrong too and was the heartbroken one. You would have to have some real power to always get it right ;)

Well that is one way to go about it. But being cynical all the time is not a good thing i feel. Thanks for your response. Happy mylotting.

I'm not a really a very good judge of character. I've never really been good at it. But I suppose that this type of thing takes a lot of practice.

I think I'm not a good judge of people,I can't able to identify what kind of person someone is when I first meet.I always think everyone is kindly,perhaps that's because I'm too warm-hearted.generally speaking,when contacts with someone for one or two weeks,I will decide if I will continue to contact to him. do you konw a book from chinesse calls bingjian,which is handed down.and this book tells we should believe in someone or not by observation of his appearance,include bone,foread,mouth,nose,etc.I think sometimes we needn't to get to konw more about someone,apart from several best friends.no matter how chactaor someone is ,that is their things ,not yours.

The bible says that you should never "judge" anyone... Though I would like to think that I am highly empathic and that my first instinct is usually correct... Of course, there are days when I can't do anything right :)

I don't think anyone can tell exactly how a person is when they first meet them. Unless its in a setting to were people are drinking or something like that, most people try to leave a good impression when they meet someone. I think it takes time to really know what kind of a person their are.

I am successful to some extent in judging people and not to a great extent though. I would love to judge them right. But it is not an easy task. It is a daunting task to judge people correctly. After all face is the index of the mind.

In my opinion, no one has the right to judge anyone by his/her looks. Have you heard of the saying: DO NOT JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER? You will be able to feel if a person is good or not by looking straight to their eyes when you converse. It is after all the mirror of your soul.

for me to judge a person it generally takes some time..i cant judge a person in the first meeting but eventually i get to know what kind of a person am i dealing with and then i respond accordingly.......

I don't like to judge people who come across my business.Only their motivation of dealing a business has to be seen.Whatever character he may have will not influence the business.So,I don't try to judge them. In day to day life,I can judge people with their face look and body languages.But I won't run into quick conclusions and take a little time to decide.Cheers!
