Searching for an Answer...

a couple of days ago, my friends and i were discussing why do we judge people on the way they look like... and i discovered that most of us are not ready to change the first impression they have about others... i was one of them, untill i joined a forum, and i must admit that i've changed my whole idea about some people there, and am glad that some of them changed their ideas about me too :o)

my question is, why do we tend to judge ppl before we know them? does their appearance really reflect their personalities? do we do this to protect ourselves from what we don't know, or is it coz we are not ready to accept anyone who's "different" than us... i still can't tell why... life is full of questions and answers, but we simply don't know how to relate them both together, maybe someday i'd manage to find the right answer...

    Salam
    Well... first of all congratulations on your Blog
    Secondly... about judging people we don't know ... I guess people are usually afraid of everything they don't know, so when they see someone they use their defensive mechanism against this person.
    What do you think of this???
    Waiting to hear from you

    Thanx Mohammad :)
    i liked ur theory alot;), but it still doesn't answer why we somtimes judge people whom we know we'll never talk to... is it just for fun, to make time pass by, or is it coz we think we can tell how their personalities might be like... sometimes, we even make our own assumptions and stories about them :) like where did this person get his hat from, and why is he wearing pink... where does a certain person originally comes from, or what's that rose doing in someone's hand ;)
    this is a habit i wish that i'd manage to get rid of someday, especially after i knew the 1st impression people have about me, which is totally the opposite ;) but sometimes, it's really fun, especially when ur with ur friends... (guilty;)
    btw, why don't u make a blog 2 ???, i promise i'll do my best not to do any "ma2aleb" this time ;)
    thanx again, hope that u'd keep on commenting on my thoughts :)
