Don’t judge a book by its cover!
In this world, APPEARANCE is one of the basis on how you are to be treated. For instance, if you see a homeless man in a dirty shirt and starving, would you even dare to get close to him or her and give some food? Nahhh! I assume not and only those who really care would dare. Judgmental as it seems, but apparently, there area lot of people who are very quick in judging others that do not look beyond, and we actually take the first impression.
We all know that first impressions and appearances matter. No matter how much we’re told not to judge a book by its cover, we all do it. But that’s fine some of the time, but how about in quite serious situations? Our prejudice can be a negative barrier.
Another social experiment from Model Pranksters, in which two guys get treated differently by based on their appearance. Model Pranksters demonstrate just how judgmental we can be when they set up two fake falls. Both are guys on crutches that look injured. Only one is dressed in a super nice new suit and the other deliberately dressed up ho as homeless.
Will the way the man looks impact whether people help him or not? If you were actually in the scene, would you be just like the crowd and just ignore him?
Watch this video and start to change yourself and your thinking.
Everyone should have helped out the ‘homeless” man the same way as they helped out the “successful” one. If you want to make society a better place to live, let us all help the people who are needy, just like the “homeless” person in the video. Make a change and be the change. It’s time to make a change people, and it needs to happen NOW.
As the famous quote from Antoine de Saint – Exupery states,
It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
