We should not judge a person by external appearances Score: 4.5 July 24th, 2017 by DD

Some people think that external appearances are important factors to judge a person. However, as far as I am concerned, I believe that we should not judge a person by external appearances for several reasons described in the following essay.
 First, we can change external appearances easily by not changing our internal characteristics. For example, if you want to be a famous singer you can imitate his clothes by just buying them and you can feel as if you could approach to the singer. You can pretend as if you were a famous singer, supper star or rich man just by imitating the external appearances even if you are not such a people. If I judge them by external appearances, I misunderstand that they are really such a precious persons. This illustrates that judging by external appearances do not accord with the actual character. Therefore, judging by external appearances leads to make wrong judgement about the actual character and we should avoid making such a wrong judgement.
Second, judging person only by external appearances sometimes cause serious problems in our relationship with friends. To give a example, when I was a junior high school student, I heard some students talked about the appearances of my friend. They teased his appearances just because he was very small at that time, but my friend seemed to be smile. After a few month later, my friend suddenly left the school. I heard later that he was not able to put up with being teased by his classmates. However, I was not able to notice his condition, because he seemed to be smile while being teased and I though that he did not care. It was so sad news for me because he was one of my best friends. If I had couraged him at that time, he have not left the school. I made wrong judgement by his appearances. After this incident, I came to hate the student who teased my friend. This experience shows that judging persons by appearances or face in this experience caused serious problems with friends.

This experience shows that judging persons by appearances or face in this experience caused serious problems with friends.
In conclusions, I disagree to judge people by external appearances for two reasons. First, the external appearances do not match the internal character. Second, judging by external appearances sometimes breaks the relationship with friends.
