Judging Strangers based on Intutions ?

August 7, 2007 at 10:51 am | Posted in Introspection | 5 Comments

I have mentioned in some of my previous posts that I am an intutive person.I decide things based on my intutions or 6th sense so many times.Till date my 6th sense has hardly driven me wrong and so I trust my intutions.

When I meet someone, I guess about the traits of the person by looking at him/her.Things like he/she is a geniuine person, he/she is intelligent, he/she is just like me, I can trust this person, I can make friends with him/her,he is a politician,he can stab at the back, he is a flirt and so many of these kinds and I can say I am hardly wrong till date.There have been times when people have portaied themselves to be different then their actual self and over the course of time I have felt that I was wrong, but some day their actual selves have come to picture.Similarly, when I read/listen about a person or talk to someone over the phone, I imagine about their personality. Relatives cannot always be chosen but I do choose friends based on my inner voice. I also stay away from some relatives and colleagues as directed by my inner voice though they hardly did any harm till date.

I really wonder, if others do the same.My husband says that I am a great observer.I observe things closely.May be he is true and may be thats the reason my guesses are always /mostly right. In reply I usually laugh and say that the sixth sense is inbuilt for girls.But then I have some friends who can hardly judge people and they often face fallback of their wrong judgement.So then may be its not inbuilt for all the girls.

Someone once wrote on my blog that “Intuition is a reflection of our past experiences coupled with our level of comfort.Likes and dislikes are manifestations of our comfort level with respect to the person/thing for which a like or dislike is being formed.” But I still feel, I should not be judging people based on my past experiences and sometimes just plain intutions.Forming an opinion or like /dislike for someone based on just your apprehensions is not justified.You may be right and you may be wrong. Everyone should be given a chance to prove/express.But then, I am always a looser when I don’t trust myself, so I am not too sure.

BTW..I have survived till my 50th post ..Yippee!

  1. I think to some extent what you do is what everyone else does too. So its nothing negative as such.

    Its but natural to try and understand a person who you are meeting for the first or one of those rare times and without asking too many questions we try to judge them by their gesetures, personality, appearance and little other things too.

    I do that too quite often and like you said I can know in flat 10 mins if I will gel with that person or not and have been correct 99% of times.

    So don’t think you don’t trust people or for that matter yourself.

    And congratulations on the half century! πŸ˜€

    First of all, congratulations on that 50! Wish you many many more πŸ˜€
    Secondly, I managed to complete one of your homeworks.
    Thridly, I am like you. I judge whether I like a person or not within minutes of meeting him but many a times I am proven wrong πŸ™‚ Its nice that your intuitions are strong.
    Now I am curious what you have concluded about me πŸ™‚

  3. I also go by intution. Especially when it comes to liking/disliking people. It’s better than listening to other people’s opinion. I have this bad tendency of blaming others when I do something based on their decision and it goes wrong. So intution is the best.

    Btw, congrats on the half century!

  4. Hmmm.. I’m very impulsive and rush into anything and everything, only to realise later (not in all things, thankfully)that I was wrong.
    Several times, my husband warns me in advance… but when has a wife ever listened to her husband πŸ˜‰
    My intuition , sadly seems to be in need of repair.:(

  5. wow you really got there quick!!! 2 years of my blog and some deletions later, i am only now reaching that mark… way to go bhabhi!!!

    after reading ur post, i kept thinking for a long time. indeed, we must judge strangers at all costs even if it sounds rude to others. observations and judgments… that are my only tools to create a life devoid of irritating and time-wasting people.
