    Considering that I often am judged on my appearance ("Oh my GOD! Look at that freaky goth chick!"), I try really hard not to do the same thing. But if a girl is walking around looking like a skank, I'm sorry, but I call it like I see it.

    Its hard to say you shouldn't judge people by the way they dress, if someone is trying to portray a look, whether they realize the implications or not, you still have to be weary of the guy who dresses like a thug, or the person who paints their face like the grim reaper, expression is great I don't hate people for that, but the way my mind works if you are trying to dress like something out of a horror movie, or portray a look that is mainly associated with gangs drugs or violence, there is something a bit off about it.

    I think that everyone should be able to look how they want to look. Nobody's perfect.

    I think that practically everyone will make some sort of judgement on a person the first moment they see them, based on their appearance.

    The opinion often changes though, when they get to know the person, or even speak to them for teh first time.

    That's prejudice if you do. Judging somone before you know all the info. I used to hate this girl because I didn't like the way she looked, then I got to know her and I hated her because she was a b*tch! She hits hard man!

    Neat, clean, well mannered.Appearances do matter. If I turned up for a job interview for a high profile position looking like a clown I wouldn't get it. Overweight ppl cannot help the way they look either. They don't know it but they are suffering from malnutrition. I know because I wrote the book on weight loss. position clown overweight ppl suffering malnutrition wrote book weight loss

    No, but I might judge them on their actions and words. That says a lot more about them. However, I try to be open-minded.

    This question is not as straightforward as it appears; there are some things that just grab your attention:

    straightforward appears grab attention

    And some of my "judging" is hiring people that will represent my business to the public in a small Iowa town, so some sense of conservative appearance is warranted. I try to let people be, they made their choice, not mine, but that doesn't mean I have to hire them or invite them to dinner.

    Everyone knows the "first impression" saying. I try not to judge people until I have given them a fair shot, but to me if you are purposely giving of a certain look, then don't be surprised if people treat you how you look...

    More so when it's work related, less so on a social basis. I like unique people, but have a hard time looking at someone with muliple piercings on their face. I love tattoos, but chuckle wondering if they will still be proud of them when they hit 50 and the boobs & arms start to sag.

    At some level, everyone does. It's a genetic legacy of basic instinct where survival could well depend on speedy and accurate threat or mating potential. Societal constructs trend toward more superficial assessments of character but are nearly always influenced to some degree by general appearance.

    When I first saw Criss Angel on a TV screen, believe me, my first thought was not, "Gee, this guy looks like a consummate professional performer and fully-engaging personality."

    sorry to say, it do tells a lot about a person. If homeless people would bathe and put on clean clothes you would never know they are homeless. There's no excuse for no human not to bathe and wear clean clothes, i don't care how poor you are. How you look speaks volumes and tells a lot about your character. I don't know about anybody else, but I depise filt, I find great pleasure in cleaniness.

    I don't think I do. I judge certain things of their appearance maybe, like if they're wearing a band t-shirt, I'd assume that they like that band, or I'd maybe judge them by how they walk, but that's it.

    I think sometimes people do judge people by their looks. Some tried not to do it on purpose, and some look at you if they are better that you. I said "You should look inside instead of out.

    Correction: I meant "NO" for my answer

    if we want peope to look inside, we have to give them a reason to want to look inside, the outside speaks volumes first, that's just the way the mind goes...

    some people are intelligent but their personal hygenes stinks and this is a major problem. How smart are you if you can't bathe and chang clothes everyday. I can put up with a man wearing his pants twice, no excuse not to bathe thro. For me, give me a hard woking and clean man that loves cologn and i'm sold, will not settle for nothing lesser.
