Interesting! I like a lot of these old posts coming to resurface. Good topics.
I have somewhat opposing views on these. If we weren't able to judge one another, we'd be setting ourselves up for danger. Judgment is instinctual and a survival tactic. If we see someone who looks like a threat, we use that judgment to avoid them! This is based on what I've learned studying psychology and biology. And in general, the judgments that lead me to the thoughts "stay away from that person, they're trouble!" have been accurate. While some people call it a "bad vibe" or a warning from intuition, usually it's mostly do to the physical appearance of a person. You can't help it--within the first 30 seconds you've made a concrete decision about your opinion on this person. (This can be swayed if you get to know them better).
Unfortunately, with these much needed judgments come the more shallow, hateful, and less helpful ones. But just because you aren't apt to judge people before getting to know them doesn't mean that they'll be wonderful people or someone you'll want to be around.
It would be like a bird eating a monarch butterfly (poisonous to consume) and (assuming the bird could analyze situations) thinking that maybe not all monarch butterflies have that horrible bitter taste and make them sick. They will keep eating monarch butterflies if they don't make judgments and endanger themselves.
very deep and thought out reply. thanks i enjoyed reading into your insight. fabulous<3
i think judging one another can be a good thing, sometimes, when someone gets out of hand with an addiction or a destructive behavior, the judgement of their friends and family can help them to realize what they're doing is wrong.. a fair amount of judgement from people you love can guide you; but i don't think you should ever truly care about what the masses of people think that you don't really know, they have no impact on your life really so worrying about what they think is a waste of time.
