Some people astound us. They make us wonder how wrongly we judge people. Perception is a very misleading factor. We perceive people in certain ways based on their looks, the way they speak, dress, qualification, upbringing, place and all that. And most of the time, our perception goes wrong.
What is the reason for it? May be we are taught and trained to think in certain ways.
Ã A village belle will be shy and innocent.
Ã A single child will be possessive and cannot adapt to changing circumstances.
Ã Children of rich will be spoilt and they do not know the value for money.
Ã Girls do not drink or smoke. If she drinks she will enjoy only Vodka.
And the list just goes and on...
I believe that perceptions are to be shattered. It is an assumption about people. We always see what others let us see. There can be more to them. Sometimes they might be exaggerating. In either case, we can’t judge instantly.
Talking to them and understanding their thought flow is a pre-requisite.
And beware! Perceptions defers!
