No matter how open-minded a person may claim to be, everyone makes presumptions on first impressions or rumors. Despite seeing someone for only a split second, people make assumptions about others’ attitude, personality, and character! Usually, people tend to notice things that they feel are grounds to pass judgment upon. The quote “ You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view.... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it” by Harper Lee is a quote that truly signifies how people should perceive others. Rather than judging someone, people should place themselves in their shoes and try to understand their way of thinking
What can cause a sudden change in someone’s life? As details in “An American Childhood,” “A Retrieved Reformation,” “At the Crossroads, “A Christmas Carol Acts I and II,” and “Thank You, M’am” show, significant changes in someone’s life can be caused by an inner realization, starting over and being given a second chance.
To analyze my idea that first impression isn’t good enough to judge a person. some people might agree with the ideal assumption of first impressions are almost impossible to change while some of us disagree. In order to know someone better and to be a true and honest friend we have to get to know each other with certain amount of time. The you get to know somebody, the best you can evaluate them. First impression isn’t everything but it is helpful for our next level. So please people don’t judge a person by first look get to know them
Hi Nyla, nice post! I agree with your comment, I think a person is more vulnerable when they’re experiencing distress verses when things are going well. I believe when things start to spiral when a person believes that it cannot happen to them and their in change of a situation. It often leads from being controlled to uncontrollable especially when pleasure is involved. A person may began as an occasional user or using in moderation. A person’s mind tricks them into believing that they may be able to handle their consumption or intake all the while forgetting that one may become many when dealing with pressures, escaping, having fun, or is septitable from family history traits of abuse. A person’s heart speaks values to intervene to them as
It seems so silly that I would judge someone like that, but I did. Now I regret my way of thinking and it has made me aware of how easy it is to criticize others before there is even a basis for making those kinds of decisions. I am working on being less judgmental and giving people the benefit of the doubt. It is unfair to decide whether or not I am going to like someone before I meet them, especially for such childish reasons as the ones I had for judging this girl. So many times in life people can meet other people and determine whether or not those people are worthy or their attention just based on appearance. It is very unfair and often leads to assumptions that are completely wrong. Confirmation bias is something that we all deal with, and I am working to overcome one area in which I struggle with
I am covering the article, “Cool dudes: The denial of climate change among conservative white males in the United States by McCright and Dunlap (2011).
Identity is like a fingerprint. It is unique to the individual. That identity is a collection of the people that person has met and the experiences they have been through. In what way they express themselves can have an effect on who they meet and what choices they make in
Judging the unknown, that is what we as humans seem to do now instead of getting to know the person first. However, sooner or later we have to realize that in order to create a future worth living for we must stop and come together as one.
Dodie, Great post! You stated some very good points, and I completely agree with you. I agree on your statement, that every day is a struggle because it truly is. Individuals that have to wear glasses must have to learn to adjust to wearing them. Individuals constantly have to care for their glasses because they could easily get lost or broken. It is always important that an individual have the proper eye wear if not they are still in the same situation of not being able to see. It sucks that individuals get teased for something that is crucial for their health. This is a problem because it makes kids too afraid or ashamed to say they can’t see or that they need help. I agree, children need to take care of their vision problems, so that they

Working as a general agency intern in the summer of 2013 at Zizzo provided my first glimpse into the real-time agency world. I learned how your departments collaborated and dipped my toes in a variety of them. Two years and a bachelor degree later, I’m ready to embark a more specialized journey with the empowering group I remember. Here’s what I’ll bring as your PR intern:
Looks can be deceiving. People can look nice and will completely shock you for whom they really are. Then there are people that you know for sure that
Why do so many people base their initial opinion about someone by just looking at them without really even knowing them? Knowing or having morals is the establishment that everyone has a set of basic needs in order to live a “happier” life. It seems that more and more as
It has been previously proven, that in the first few moments of meeting someone, we form an opinion of them. The problem with this idea is stereotypes. One of our society's biggest mistake is that we judge people based on what they look like, or how they act.
First impressions are always used in setting the tone when you first meet someone. Without the luxury of knowing the persons background, you initially judge someone by the way that person introduces themselves and how they come across to you. By coming across, I mean the way a person carries themselves. For example, if the person comes across as shy and introverted, you tend to think of that person as timid and somewhat weak. However, if that same person comes across as outgoing, confident (but not to confident) and easy to talk to, you look at that person as someone you can count on and possibly a leader. This type of evaluation (even though we all do it) is for the most part not always the right way to evaluate a person.
