Do you judge a book by it's cover?

How often are your first impressions correct?

BTW I'm not actually talking about books

    I use this technique to purchase the correct book at Waterstones.

    I always give the benefit of the doubt and generally things work out

    I don't judge anyone until I have spoken to them for at least 15-20 mins. My judge of character is then 99% of the time bang on

    So you never judge a person based purely on what you see, even subconsciously?

    even subconsciously?


    Everyone dose it sbconsciously, and it will always effect your judgment. However you have some control as to the extent you let it do so.
