Do not judge a book by its cover,....

"...until you've read the book." -Jamie Lee Curtis on the Early Show- My question to follow that statement is, if we apply that to people, do you think we can truly 'read' someone totally from beginning to end so that we can judge their 'content'?

I have never judged people by the way they look but prefer to talk to people and get their opinions, listen to what they have to say, and decide for myself after I have got to know them better.

Hello Recyclegoth, You voice the similar opinion about it takes time and no early judgment. I cannot agree more. However, I think people always change that is why we can never say we know someone one hundred percent after many years of being closely acquianted. There has to always be rooms for no early judgments. Thanks for confirming the sentence above!

I think I have been able to read people for a very long time. I am very concerned if someone likes me or not or what they may think of me. I have taught myself to read through people to see if they actually care about me or if they are only around me to use me up, I have been used by so-called friends too many times and now I am pretty wise to not let certain people into my life. I try not to judge them by what I see from them or hear, but their actions speak louder than words.

Dear Stephcjh, I agree that length of our times for interaction will help us to get to know someone better. After awhile, we'll get a clearer picture of who they are. But it all takes time and the challenge is not to harbour any judgment too soon. Thank you for joining in!
