When finding a girl/boy friend, or looking for a right person to employ, we need to judge a person. And

When finding a girl/boy friend, or looking for a right person to employ, we need to judge a person. And when judging a person, I agree that one should never judge a person by external appearances. There are some conspicuous factors for my points. They are listed as follows.

As we all know, internal characteristics should be the main standard when judging a person. However, external appearance and internal characteristics are not the same most of the time. I still remember a film presented by two famous film stars. In the film, two poor people, one is a girl who is a carrier and the other is a boy who is a repairman, both want to find a rich person to live with. They put up with luxuriant clothes that they bought by borrowing money from others. After they met on the plain flying to Paris, they all judged from each other`s external appearance and believed that she or he was the ideal person. But as you could guess, they found out each other`s trick in the end. The same story happens in this real world too. So, we should never judge a person from external appearance.

In addition, to judge a person from their external appearance may make you in illusion. This can be clearly seen by the classic tale whose name is the emperor`s new clothes. In the story, the emperor judges the tailors from their external appearance and thinks they are excellent workers. So, he let them to make new clothes for him. These two cheat a lot of gold from the emperor and they make the emperor nude in the procession in the end.

In a word, to judge a person from external appearance would let us make wrong choices. Taking into account of all the factors mentioned above, we may reach the conclusion that one should never judge a person from external appearance.
