#4: Porcupines Are Also Cuter
Making snap judgments about people is a terrible idea—it’s unkind, and anyway, when we do it, we often turn out to be wrong—but we all do it, all the same, all the time. We make judgments about people based on the way they dress, the music they listen to, the people they hang out with, and the car they drive.
It’s probably not nice to make a snap judgment that everyone who drives a BMW is a condescending jerk. But then, I think a lot of people who buy expensive cars do so hoping that you will look at them and make a snap judgment that they are rich and we should admire them. So I guess they only have themselves to blame if these snap judgments work against them.
