I believe that one should not judge a person by external appearances while he does not know a person well. When we meet a person for the first time we unconsciously make a first impression about him. Some people believe that the first impression about a person is the right one. However, from my everyday experience and observation I can stand that external appearances are often illusive. I can give several reasons to support my opinion.
First of all, different people have different opinions about an importance of person’s appearance. Some people dress, behave themselves, wear haircuts to make an impression, feel better about themselves and even to make self-realization. But this does not make them kinder, clever and more experienced. Unfortunately, people tend to associate these qualities with external appearances.
However, other people do not care much about their appearances. Personally, I do not care about my clothes as long as they are clean, knit and comfortable. But, to tell the truth, I often judge a person by his external appearances. I can not say it is wrong. I think that it is normal as long as it is just the first impression. I think that people should remember that a first impression can be replaced by another one very quickly, which is not always the better one.
When people begin to communicate and get to know each other, the first impression is replaced by the deeper one. One begins to see the bad and good sides of a person under his clothes, make up, and even manners.
To sum up, I believe that one should not judge a person before one gets to know him well.
