    You Can't

    Yes, the outside is what we first see and first impressions mean a lot, but they usually don't say everything about what we can and will see if and when we look further. This applies to people, animals, things, and places.

    I make so many assumptions tho,

    I wouldn't call my assumptions judgements as they're hardly negative, but I enjoy doing it so when's get to know them it's like I can see how right or how much they proved me wrong... I thought everyone did this tho because we often play the "first impressions game" and things...

    Cover ?

    Judge a book by its cover is as stupid as to judge someone by the color of his/her skin, religion, or philosophy. A wise man once said: ' Compare is to judge and judge is compare '. We compare against ourself, our values, our own education. These three aspects are features of our...
