People generally say that for them a person’s appearance never affects them. Is this really the truth?
It is partially true. As our appearance plays a vital role in how our first impression is on people. But it doesn’t always mean that the person is the same on the inside as on the outside. The truth is we all do it, we take a look at someone and make an opinion just like that.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
You’ve heard that expression so many times. The gross-looking brown apple just may be a delicious one, or beyond that old and peeling store front there may be gorgeous clothes. We can never know what lies beyond the exterior until we check it out.
Beauty is often hiden beneth the cloak of unsightedness. Once I met a man who had a really shabby appearance, he wore an old burberry print Jacket, trousers that was torn and shoes that looked like they were never polished. My friends dared me to go to him and talk to him for 5 minutes. I went to that old chap and when I was just about to say something he greeted me so warmly. I felt I created a wrong image of this man as an arrogant and poor person but he turned out to be a really soft spoken and humble person. I ended up talking to him for almost 10 minutes and from then whenever I see him I greet him with respect. This make me pick this topic to write on.
Okay. Physical appearance matters in both aspects of life; on the professional front as well as in personal life. It is normally seen that you won’t go for an interview wearing shorts and a simple tshirt as we all know this will lead to a bad impression on the interviewers, which will eventually lead to you not getting the job. Similarly on the personal front, if you have pre-assumed a person’s image in your mind, you won’t ever really know what kind of person they are, maybe they are not the same as others say.
Don’t judge anything/anyone on their appearances, they might not be the person you think of them as.
