Judgmental


It is in our nature to be judgmental.

Being judgmental is not stating an opinion or labeling something as "good" or "bad".

Being judgmental is to evaluate based on our quality of someone or something.

Most of us make up our minds about the people we meet in the first few seconds.

What is it in our minds that creates judgment of other people?

Our judgment of others comes swiftly, harshly and sometimes quite frankly and correctly.

But being judgmental is not always useful to us.

It is not good to look down on others, as if we are so much better.

Judgmental parents tend to be over critical, shaming and controlling their children.

I, for one, can be judgmental with people who are too judgmental.

Some women are extremely judgmental of men. But when that judgment is getting thrown back in their faces, men become the bad guys.

Are you a judgmental person? Do you like assuming and analyzing?

I am definitely not a judgmental person when it comes to someone's weight (I'm fat). But I am very judgmental regarding other things.

Is it good to be always judgmental?

I try to never make assumptions. But I do have my own opinion about certain issues...and don't mind voicing them...

It can be hard not to be quick to judge. I have to really make an effort to not judge someone too quickly.

I never judge anyone because I do not like being judged. However I do assume sometimes which I need to stop doing.

I have learned a kind of weird lesson. By judging those that judge too quickly, you are as well judging. I think it is part of human nature, but the trick is to accept people for who they are despite the outcome of your judgement.
