Is it okay to judge people according to their physical Appearance ?

Many people judge others without knowing anything about them. They only judge them according to their physical Appearance . It's really wrong deed to do so. Let's get to know them in order to know who they are. We can not know anybody till we get to know them. We should interact with them. It's really a huge mistake to juge and gossip about them.
Do we choose to deal with people according to their physical Appearance ?.

  • Jul 5 2012: I've always thought it was wrong to judge a person based on their physical appearance, but the fact is.. I still do it. I honestly think everybody does it and that it is a natural thing. Nobody likes stereotypes, but they still exist. I believe it's okay to be cautious of someone based on their appearance and still act civilized. Of course you must get to know someone in order to understand who they are, and if they can prove your judgement wrong (or right), that's great. People can be very surprising. Gossiping, on the other hand, is for people who can't find anything interesting to talk about.
