I try not to do this because of all my own faults and issues. I don't want to be judged by my weaknesses or lack of being able to do something to another's standards. I view someone based on my first impression of them as a whole person. You know, that little feeling in your tummy or lack of feeling in meeting someone. I don't expect anything, but prefer to observe, listen, and watch body language. Sometimes people are hard to get a first impression from. In those cases, I observe a long time -like many meetings or incidents with them- before making a decision on how I feel about that person. In other situations, I never have a for sure answer on how I feel; some are always just a little too wary for me. In all cases, I try my hardest to keep an open mind and open view of people. When this is not possible, I fall back to my first impression.
