Do you make judgement calls about a person's intelligence based on silly things?

Talking Do you make judgement calls about a person's intelligence based on silly things?

Hypothetical.

You walk up someones drive and you notice that they have the registration stickers all over their license plate (not just in the upper right hand corner, or where ever your State requires)...

Then, for whatever reason, once you're in the house you need to use the restroom and you notice they have the toilet paper going back behind the roll, instead of up and over the roll. (Up and over is the correct, and most ergonomic way).

Then, you notice that they keep their butter on the kitchen counter (no refrigeration).

Do you think, "Oh, that's fine... to each their own." Or... do you think something else?

Don’t understand the toilet paper thing. Works either way.

That's a home filled with non-conforming scofflaws...

I will admit that I judge girls/women who take photos where they stare blankly and do that stupid pucker thing with their lips. I guess the Kardashians started it because just about every photo they post of them in my news feed shows them with that look. In my mind, it tells me that they aren't smart and focus only on their looks. Whether that is true or not, that is the impression I get. To me, that face/look turns a women from a 9 to a 4. And don't get me started on the girls that emulate the tongue-out look that Myley Cyrus started. There is nothing sexy about either of those looks, only stupidity - IMO.

My condescension is manifested in other ways. I judge people by the mundanity of the topics of conversation they initiate.

Hahahaha... I see grown women on Facebook do that lip thing too, or the "open mouth" thing that seems really popular right now.

I won't go into detail as to what I think they're suggesting when they do that face. I'm pretty sure every straight male is thinking the exact same thing.

My apologies if someone who reads this has a wife/GF that does it. LOL.

Backwards is the correct way if you have a cat. Now...what having a cat says about you...that's another question.

Yes but I notice it as they see things from a different perspective, that's the kind of person where I find their perspective interesting when I'm trying to think outside the box or to cover my basis when making some types of decisions.

Yeah, that silly picture if the boat captain being thrown off his boat brings up a lot of judgement like questions.

We all make these judgements.

When poll like questions like this are asked here, I judge that someone is getting paid, or will be rewarded.

Butter on the counter where it keeps just fine and is easy to spread versus in the refrigerator, where it's just about impossible to spread on anything. Angst about which way the tp roll is installed.

I'm judging you right now.

Tattoos, gold grills, southern rock, mullet hair cuts, hair extensions, nascar stickers, people posting pictures of their wives, girlfriends, lovers online wearing bikinis for another mans financial gain. There are many telltales.

Guess I should have added the ability to judge a person that would insinuate the mundane nature of a thread by posting in said thread. Some would argue that an intellectually superior individual would not bother if they felt as they implied.

Spend all day judging people for their wrong doings.

At work, do you look me in the eye as we cross in the hallway? Do you was your hands when you go to the bathroom? Do you admit when you are wrong?

Driving, do you have registration stickers all over your plate? Do you have extremist political license plates that I do not agree with? A Prius or Subaru? Do you drive with lack of intent or direction?

I could go on and on but I believe the little things will tell you more than I want to know about you.

License plate stickers....passive aggressive or non-conformist.

Toilet paper - that struggle is real. His wife did that.

Butter - that's the way the old timers did it....refrigeration is only a 120 years old or so.

.......so you went to a guys house and decided to drop a deuce in his toilet.......dude. Whiz....yeah, take a dump-------aaaah no.

I wouldn't judge on points 2 or 3. Depending on my closeness with the person I would absolutely mess with them about the toilet paper.

Now the reg stickers being all over the place... Yeah, I judge on that.
