Tell me, honestly…

Are You Judgmental?

Yes I am. I'll give you a list of reasons why I judge people, ranging from religion point of views to logical explanations and anything else that matters.

Human are judgmental by nature. In fact, we're not African hyenas which socialize only during mating season. We're living creatures in a community, firmly bound by Eastern values and religion.

I reckon that New York is a good place for 'free individuals' to hang out.

Pok Deng,

I value your frank honesty. It's refreshing. i have a few things on my mind relating to this, will update soon.

Cinta,
I cannot agree less on Sir's opinion that being judgemental is very natural and necessary human function. Even Santa Claus is judgemental. As a Libran and a believer in fairness and balance and not wanting to be someone who look down onto others, I sometimes found that my opinions were surprisingly considered hypercritical.

Sadly, most of the times, articulate views are considered arrogant and imperious.

But I guess judging a judgemental person too is innate.

You asked the wrong questions. It is not who but what.

Dottie,

Sometimes I wonder, where do we cross the line in being judgmental...

Tranquility,
Nope, I asked the correct question and I stand by it. Are you judgmental?

its hard not to be a judgemental person...how can we stop our mind from going 'there'...lets see myself as example...the minute i walked into my staffroom this morning, my mind started judging everything that i could see, including the rubbish on the floor...'makcik ni kalu malas keje berhenti jela....'..hmm.....i should think like this 'kesian makcik ni, mesti x sempat nk kutio sampah jumaat haritu...' or should i just stop thinking and stop thinking.....?

Cinta said...

Yao,
no babes, u shoudnt stop thinking :) thinking is very important. it's how we choose to direct that line of thought is what counts

Tranquility said...

I am. But i hate doing it. DwD is right, it's too innate to erase.

we should be less judgemental....Life is much better if you are not judging other people.
i just started being nicer to people.it is really more of an internal change of attitude. we must give people a chance so that we will get to know them a little bit better before creating any opinion on them. Sometimes, i was surprised to find people were nicer than i thought.. Let things go and smile at people. People are different and they have their own way of living.
But i have to agree that passing judgement on others can happen without even realising that we are doing it.

Tranquility,
I hate doing it too..does that make us a bad person? for judging people? No matter how innate it is?

Hazira,
Does this mean that you'll be nicer to ur friend on the island up north?? :) but i do agree with u, sometimes we pass judgement way too early, and whether we realize it or not, we're being unfair...

suhaila said...

well, i 'll try my best 2 not to stop thinking.....
i guess if our friend can b nicer 2 her friend on the island up north...i can do it as well...i will be nice to everybody...including to the person i hate to be nice with...hehehe..
no i'm not being hypocrite, i'm positive....
