Looks Aren’t Everything
Apparently when you first meet someone, it takes less than a second for us to decide whether we like this person or not. But the reality of a quick glance or a polite “Hello” is sadly not enough time to give anyone a chance, let alone make a decision.
As humans we cannot help but subconsciously judge people every day. We scrutinise people by their clothes, nationality, culture, body language and even the way they talk. Sadly, it’s very easy to judge ‘a book by it’s cover’ and sometimes this can come back around to bite us.
In fact, how many times have your initial thoughts on someone been completely wrong? Did you meet someone and think ‘Oh she doesn’t look very friendly’ only to find out later, that she’s the nicest person on the planet – just very shy?
Or have you been in a situation where you’ve met someone and instantly thought “We’re not going to get along” but then later discover that you and that person have so much in common?
It happens to the best of us!
As well as this initial judgement - stereotypes also happen. Of course, we all know that just because someone is wearing a suit, doesn’t mean that they are smart. Nor does someone covered in tattoos make them uneducated. However, assumptions and stereotyping happens every day.
It’s so important for us all to remember that we are so much more than our appearances. People can judge you by your looks all they like, but the reality is beauty is only skin-deep. Whereas interests and personality is what makes a person.
