Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? One should never judge a person by external appearances. Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.


Exterior aspect has always been an important matter for human beings. Beauty, mood, clothes and other ornaments that people use, can be a reason for prejudgment. I agree that no one should be judged by external appearances. In the next essay I will give arguments that supports this statement.

To start with, I am against to those who consider that the clothes make the man. Unfortunately, financial equality is not a characteristic of our live. There are rich people who can afford luxurious items, and person who can barely survive to daily life. Having a big fortune does not mean that rich guys possess a good soul or behavior. Most of the times, they are selfish, arrogant and treat the others with superiority. When I was in college, I went out with my friend and her wealthy acquaintances. One sweet girl told her car was broken and that she had to go to work by tram. You could have noticed in her voice that she considered means of public transport something beyond her status. Since I have no personal car it made me feel uncomfortable and I have never gone out with them once again. I am sure that this attitude might not be available for all the moneyed individuals, but for sure this is good example that things are not always what they seem to be.

Secondly, somebody can be misjudged because of her/his personality. There are people who are like an open book and expose their feelings. On the other hand, some individuals have a poker face. Those from the latter category are perceived as being cold and insensitive. In high school I had a music professor, and during four years I had never seen him smiling. He was always austere, severe, giving the impression of a serial killer. A few years after graduating high school, I had the chance to meet him in a friendly environment. This time I saw him smiling, joking, having a normal behavior and being a pleasant person. I dared to ask him why he was so different in the class and he said that it is a way to make students respect and listen to you.

These being said I strongly believe that each of us should be more careful when deciding about someones personality, based only on external aspect.
