Why do we assume things based on perception when we do not yet have the facts?


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.
