Look before for you leap – why do people judge others so quickly?

Posted By Mark on August 13th, 2009

Why do so many people jump to conclusions and judge others so quickly?

The following questions might make some people think more carefully:

Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant and already had 8 children (3 of whom were deaf; 2 were blind, 1 was mentally retarded) and she also had Syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Please read the next question before looking at the response for this one.

Question 2:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.

Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A.
He associates with crooked politicians and also consults with an astrologist.   He’s had two mistresses.  He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.
He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C
He is a decorated war hero.  He’s a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an occasional beer and has never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be your choice?  Go ahead, make your decisions but no peeking. 

When you have chosen, please scroll down for the response.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, how did you answer the abortion question:

If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven!

Pretty interesting isn’t it?  Makes a person think before judging someone.
