RDM– Mental model is judging people

I don't like the fact that i have a mental model for everything. There are these pre existing thoughts that tend to guide my decisions and me in general. Its like im a person who is always driven by intutions and pre conceived ideas rather than facts.

For example, when I meet someone who I've heard about from people. I form my judgement about that person based on what I know of him/her from other people rather than actually forming an unbiased judgement on him/her. Ofcourse, you shouln't judge people, but its always happening consciously or unconsciously. We all are always being judgemental and I know for a fact that its not only me but many people tend to judge other based on their own mental models.

And the worst part is that this happens subconsciously. And sometimes you feel so helpless especially because so many times you've gone wrong. I think of people in a particular manner and instantly judge them, in a good or bad  and over time I'm prooved wrong. They turn out to be  completely different people. And then you sit and regret about how wrong you have been all this while, simply cause you refused to be objectiveand were driven by a mental model.

Somtimes you its good to bea little clueless about things rather tha being a Miss. Know-it-all

  1. Do you see now why your judgement for was wrong…........ :P

    Yeap you are right it is bad to judge people through rumors that you have heard from the others. . . . However even if you based on facts it is how you iterpret those facts. . . Thus you will judge diferently a person from an other one because of you established mental models. . . . Life if difficult when is comes to objectivity. . .
