I must say, that I am guilty of judging a book by it's cover. I will take one look at a person and immediately judge them in my head. I am a very blunt person, but when I first meet a person, I am/will secretly judge you in my head. It usually takes me 2-3 times of actually spending time or being around a person before my first judgement goes out the window. For example: I met a woman through a mutual friend that wore all black, black nail polish, black hair, wore a Korn t-shirt and the tightest pair of spandex pants I have ever seen in my life. My first judgement of this person was that she was a "Gothic" person and listened to rock music etc. This was my first judgement. After I had spent sometime with this woman I came to find out that she was a First Grade Teacher and listened to Mozart... WHAT? Lol I hadn't seen that coming at all. She just liked the "black" look. So this is also a learning curve for me, but I am working on not judging other's by my first impression but rather my 2nd or 3rd.
As for an actual book. I would say that it isn't the cover of it that draws me in. I am the person who opens the book straight to the back to read the reviews/blurbs about it. That is what lures me in..
But why is it that I immediately judge a person based on how they look, but my judgement of a book is completely different? This I do not know. That would be something that I am working on. It is a work in progress. Any thoughts?
