    Well to answer your question, I guess yes, it's true that almost everyone judges a book by it's cover, and even if people don't want to, it'll always stay in the back of their minds regardless. I know I try not to judge others by their appearance, and try to see who they really are and how they really are by striking conversations and so on.

    But for my opinion, regardless if one wants to or doesn't want to, that will always be something that either they'll admit, or not admit as they themselves do it without awareness that they actually do.

    Most likely the percentage is much higher than 50%!
    Almost everyone has some type of "eye for detail", biases based upon experience, along with what they {innately} like or dislike.
    This doesn't just apply to judging people but also things as well.
    It's been said: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".
    It's also been said: "Don't judge a book by it's cover."
    However if we're being honest with ourselves the second statement comes off more as "wise advice" and not a "natural behavior".
    I believe the word "judged" is being used too loosely these days.
    Essentially having or forming (an opinion) is considered "judging".
    Truth of the matter is having "preferences", immediate likes/dislikes, what's attractive or ugly, fat or skinny, funny or boring are (individual) traits that make us unique. One man's junk is another man's treasure!
    No matter who you are or what you look like there are bound to be people who simply don't "get you". That's life!
    Oftentimes people simply (trust their instincts)!
    It's usually the person who "ignores the quiet voice" that has regrets.
    Almost everyone has avoided tasting a food item (solely based) upon it's appearance, color, texture, or smell. Is that "judging"?
    Every society also has it's own decorum and rules of conformity. Although each of us is free to dye our hair green, have piercings and tattoos all over our face we shouldn't be shocked if IBM doesn't offer us an executive position or we don't get elected president.
    Having said that if you go out of way NOT to conform you can't be upset when people notice you "stick out" or form an opinion.
    Most people would rather attempt to "change the world" than to change themselves! "You get in where you (fit) in".
