even if you just saw a person for the first time, and even if you just heard stories from other people's mouth... will you be persuaded to judge that person as well? i find it hard to deal and let people understand if they are so judgmental... specially they accuse you and make the fact of the fallacy to have the thought as their conclusion.. if people around you had this problem, how can you neglect or correct them...? what will you do if you had this case where your the one being judged and the one victimized by the false view of you?

No, it isn't right to be judgmental of anyone. No one is perfect. People that are judgmental of others are usually so narrow minded and only believe what they hear, instead of waiting to get to know the person first. If I were being falsely accused or being judged by a non truth, I would politely set them straight and let them know that they do not know me so what right do they have to judge?

I'm the type of person who would "see things for myself" first. In short, it's difficult for me to believe in something that I have actually not felt, seen, heard, etc., except for my faith. In this sense, I'm not judgmental at all. I also don't go by my hunches or first impressions. I need the experience first to pass judgment. I think it's best to be not judgmental of someone or something all of a sudden because it's not fair. As to what you've said, I also wouldn't like it if others would immediately judge me without actually trying to find out if the things said about me were true. Whenever I encounter judgmental people, I just avoid them. I've discovered that it's pointless to reason out with them because they usually wouldn't want to be corrected. By avoiding them or not giving them the time of day would make them finally realize that what they're doing wouldn't account for anything. Hopefully, they would eventually change.

First of all, to answer your question, here's a big, fat "NO." It is not okay to be judgmental. It is not my place to decide the sins of others. I'll admit that it is difficult for me not to judge judgmental people for being that way. I feel this is a huge problem with the society of the world, and this is the problem that creates wars. If someone is not being physically injured or stolen from, people should mind their own business.

It is okay to make judgements but not to hurt people because of them. In other words you can judge what you think of people but you cant act against them because of it.
