    If from your own personal experience they are judgmental, perhaps you have become more sensitive?

    Because it's easier to judge than to think?

    There are many reasons why people are so judgemental nowadays. 

    One of those reasons is; it is much easier for SOME people to judge others rather than accept or try to understand.  (There is so much going on in the world these days that as soon as you gain understanding or acceptance of one thing or person, up pops 20 more new things or people that are requesting understanding and acceptance...) 

    I totally disagree with RighterOne.  (A Hubber that has also answered your question.) Not ALL of us have dummy-fied... Nor is everyone in society callous and shallow with zero ability to define selflessness...

    I think there are three sorts of people:

    1) the judgemental - often they are jealous of another person and wish to hurt them with negative comments to make themselves feel better. Watch any TV soap opera, it's full of these characters ... it helps with conflict story lines. This is where the judgemental get their vindication. These people are probably beyond redemption as they do not realise they are doing it and even if they did they would find a way to excuse themselves.

    2) the judgemental who recognise what they are doing and really, really try to fight this side of their critical nature.

    3) saints.

    Folks being judgemental is not a new concept.... people always have been and always will be. Im sure you have been at some point in your life..? (Athough Im not excusing it).
    It takes a high level of self awareness, self esteem (and ESP) being comfortable and happy in ones own skin to 'become' non-judgemental. Alot of folks aint there, and unfortunately will never reach that place.........

    I too think it is increasing. If you really want a good explanation, I would recommend the book, "How Evil Works" by David Kupelian. He speaks to our changing world today.

    I don't think it's really a case of more judgment, so much as easier audience.  Now, more than ever, people have the opportunity to voice their opinions without having to face the backlash.  Social networking has made everyone a little more bold in saying what we think, and that definitely includes judgmental attitudes.

    You're kidding, right?  People are less judgmental now than anytime in recent memory.  Tolerance is the name of the game.  It's the heightened sensitivity to anyone calling anyone else out for anything that creates the perception that people are "so" judgmental.

    There are more and more people choosing to walk paths of social deviance.  It's called "deviance" for a reason.  Combine that with the morally relativistic ideology of those who are in their teens and twenties who believe that there is no such thing as right and wrong to make a judgment call on and you can see where this convolution of ideas leads - to the idea that people are more judgmental now than in the past.  In truth, people behaved better in the past so there was less to judge.

    people were a lot more judgemental before then they are now. try living 300 years ago and admitting you are an atheist.

    I am going answer this question from a positive point of view - In this age of tremendous Internet and Social Media revolution we are constantly receiving huge information regarding the events those are happening around us. This immense flow of information is constantly pushing us to make a perception towards various issues. We are not ready to accept anything without any argument - we always become judgemental to literally everything. A person who has no knowledge on a particular subject, always maintains silence - because, lack of proper knowledge he can not form any opinion. But a person who is quite knowledgeable must have a strong opinion. So it may be possible that he become judgemental sometimes.
