I have assumed thing just based on perception without knowing all the fact. I believe we have all done this at some time or another. WE tend to pre-judge others which is highly unfair. And yet each of us is guilty of assuming based on what we see or perceive. And in many cases what we assume turns out to be wrong. Why do we assume before we have the facts? And when we do assume based on perception why is it do we assume we're right?

Eric- Please understand that I'm NOT saying we should not judge. I'm asking why do we assume something based on what we perceive before we have all the facts. There is nothing wrong with judging SOMETHING once we have all the facts. Thank you.
Grace in US, that initial discernment is so important walking down a bad street in Pigalle. The rule must be to let it go. Initial perceptions should be trusted. But then let it go. That is my point
Eric- I should clarify my question. I'm simplely asking WHY do we assume based on perception? Not what is right or wrong about it. Thanks Eric
Grace -- What would you have people assume on?? Duh! Initial perception is all we have initially.
Eric- My point is we many times come to a final conclusion based only on an initial perception. We all do this in every day life. In many cases we have the chance to obtain the facts before we make choices or judgement. But many times we don't do it.
CrarftytotheCore- Thank you for your answer. Wish you the best.
Eric- I just deleted your one comment due to the curse word or implied curse word. Please avoid curse word or I will delete it. If you wish to recomment on this answer feel free to do so but leave out the cursing. Thanks.
Did someone curse at me? LOL
Mia Culpa I wonder what the word was? Some times I just write in adult common language. Like when I talk about the litter of puppies and the bitch. Or Dante's Inferno and damned to hell. Our outhouses and loads of ...... well, we get the point.
Hey Eric! I was just reading your Hubs! You are a good egg!
My point here was that it's better to eat a small morsel with close friends than a large meal with strife.
Crafty- Don't get the wrong idea. Eric and I are good friend. We just like to keep each other in check. I do have standards when people make comment. I don't allow cursing. Right Eric.
:) This is what makes this place so great. Thank you for that!
kess- A fact is ANYTHING that demonstrates proof. Thank you for your answer and God bless.
And proofs are also subjective to perception also...
How much more arguing do you need to do know this as a fact?
Might be this one depending on your perspective.
Oh my good friend. We must discuss so others can learn --- and us too. We must engage in the discourse or lose our place on the page. We learn so much from you that not to discourse would be a sin. Lies must be exposed.
O.K. kess, just so we can stop the game, Webster's II, New Riverside University Dictionary defines FACT as: "Something put forth as objectively real". Now go argue with Webster's.
Grace, who is this Webster that I should adopt his perspective?
If you choose to adopt his, that is fine. which establishes once again my point.
I am disappointed you take this merely as game.
Eric discussion are very easy to start.
kess- Noah Webster lived in the late 1700's. He was the founder of the tradition of American lexicography. Firm named after "Webster" has been producing English DICTIONARIES in America for a least the past 100 years. The firm is still in existance.
Grace Webster is dead and thus qualifies himself from having a perspective that I should adopt for surely his perspective did not profit him much so how is it going to profit me?
