Evaluation and Judgment

BEH/225

due 7/14/12

* What are the different ways in which we evaluate people?

There are a few different ways in which we evaluate others. One is to see the impressions or reactions when around someone else or when in a group. Their attitudes or how they carry themselves and even their body language are a few ways we tend to evaluate others around us.

I know this from experience I have tattoos and so does my husband, but we chose to move out of California and move to a nice neighborhood that would be better for the kids to be raised in. The neighbors do not talk to us at all, and we know why, I mean we stand out like a sore thumb. Instead of them coming and making conversation with us or coming over to meet us they base their decision on our appearance, which is not fair.
