30 Kinds of People We Just Can't Stop Judging

Posted by Maressa Brown on January 30, 2013

long fingernailsBlame human nature. No matter how "nice" we want to be 24/7/365, sometimes, we just can't help letting our own hang-ups, lifestyles, backgrounds, or tastes influence how we see others. Or should I say, how we judge others?

Be honest: Whether we "mean to," "want to," or not, we all do it. When we're walking down the street, waiting in line at the store, or simply driving around town, it's impossible not to occasionally find yourself completely turned-off by someone else and labeling them in your head. Even little, not-so-obvious reasons could have us rolling our eyes. Here are 30 people who are just asking to be negatively judged based on their behavior or appearance ... and who we're ashamed to admit we judge. But we do.

  1. People who smoke. It's 2013, not 1950. We know too much about the health consequences of this nasty habit to keep thinking it's a good idea. Or an acceptable behavior around others who might not want to be subjected to secondhand smoke.
  2. People who drink lots of soda. Don't they know it's filled with high fructose corn syrup and chemicals that are rotting them from the inside out?
  3. People who perpetually eat junk food. See #2.
  4. People who have "too many kids." Seriously, are they trying to be the next Duggars or what?
  5. People who own guns.
  6. Women who wear tons of perfume/layers of makeup. What are they hiding under there?!
  7. Women who have overly long, painted fingernails -- particularly with nail art. Aren't there less icky ways of expressing yourself?
  8. Men with even slightly long fingernails and/or toenails. Eww, ever hear of personal hygiene?
  9. People who use poor grammar/spelling in an obviously lazy way. Failing to show you have a grasp on the English language is sure to do the opposite of impress.
  10. People who update their Facebook status constantly. Way to be totally self-obsessed!
  11. People who take the elevator up one floor. Really?! Take. The. Stairs.
  12. People who carry an ill-fitting, unkempt smartphone case. Kiiiinda screams "slob."
  13. People who keep a really messy (which, admittedly, is totally relative) home. Kiiinda screams "hoarder."
  14. People who are obese or have obese children. Sad one, but oh so true.
  15. People who won't recycle, even when it's really easy to. Globe-killing litter bugs!
  16. Restaurant-goers who say "let me get ..." or "gimme the ..." as opposed to "I would like ..." or "may I have ..." Have some manners!
  17. Self-righteous people who refuse to believe scientific evidence that contradicts what their faith tells them to believe.
  18. People who refuse to give up their seat for a pregnant woman on public transportation. Self-centered jerks!
  19. Public transportation users who lean on/"hump" the pole on the subway. So other people can't use it to hold on. Self-centered jerks!
  20. Republican, aka "conservative," FOX News-loving voters. (Applicable only to those who vote Democrat.) What are they thinking?!
  21. Democrat, aka "liberal," hippie voters. (Applicable only to those who vote Republican.) What are they thinking?!
  22. Gym-goers who don't to wipe down exercise machines after use. Gross.
  23. People who don't wash their hands in a public restroom. Shudder.
  24. Public transit users who sit on the outside seat ... and then act incredulous that they have to move when you ask to sit down.
  25. People who swear/curse profusely. Especially in front of kids.
  26. Anyone with a persistent, heavy, rattling sniff in a movie theater or other public place. Get a tissue!
  27. Vacationers who vacation only at Disney World. Helllooo, haven't these people ever considered broadening their horizons?
  28. People who can't stop driving and texting or walking and texting or movie-watching and texting, etc. Cut it out!
  29. People who neglect to hold the door for anyone (especially women/children). Have a little human decency, whydontcha?
  30. People who refuse to thank someone who holds the door for them. Common courtesy must be completely dead.

Be honest: What do you negatively judge others on?

I honestly don't judge other people. I'm not always successful, and one or two might slip out. But I don't feel I have the right to judge other people based on what they do or how they live. Just because I live the way that is right for me doesn't mean that the way I live would be right for everyone. 

Diversity is the spice of life.<yeah I know, but it fits.

Also, this world would really, seriously be boring as hell if we were all alike.

I drink pop, I own guns, Facebook is the easiest way to keep in contact with my entire family 1700 miles away, I have kids my house is always a mess until they go to bed, I'm not even going to touch the science vs religion crap, I don't vote in general ( I know I suck as an American, get over it), I cuss like a sailor.....I don't judge others. Or I try not to unless its somthing absolutely ridiculous like child abuse and such. Judging others only makes you look like a sad person with nothing better to do with your time. Grow up. Oh and I don't vaccinate and I have LOTS of tattoos! I'm going to hell.

Eh, I get judgey to some degree for most of these....most of them being very little at all, a few I do get a bit judgemental about. 

But, how did a "sloppy" smartphone case make the list and parents who hit their kids NOT make it? I could not possibly care less about someone's smartphone case. 

Also, number 17 is kind of....wrong. I'm not reigious at all (no, really) but people who believe according to their faith despite all evidence to the contrary are, well, faithful. God-fearing. Good for them. What I CAN'T stand are people who try to convince others that their faith is correct, and the science is wrong. In other words, I don't care what you believe, but don't try to tell the world that science has it all wrong and the word is only 6,500 years old. It's called FAITH. If you have to prove to everyone else you are right and come up with all kinds of ridiculous pseudo-science to back it up that is not faith, not the opposite of it.

I don't think it's called "judging" when the smoker next to you sits there carelessly making you inhale his 2nd hand smoke. That's inconsiderate and rude of them, its like them farting in front of you that whole time and not being sorry about it for being offensive but its worse because 2nd hand smoke not only stinks and makes it hard to breathe, it affects our health very very negatively. I bet you most people would be more ashamed about letting out a loud stinky fart in front of you than making you breath their smoke. Most of the things on the list aren't really any of our business and they are OTHER people's personal choices that don't include us (like the 2nd hand smoke). They just sound like they're coming out of some unhappy bitchy busybody that sees the bit of dirt in everyone else's eye but doesn't remove the huge stick in their own eye. And #17?!?!?! Are you serious?!?!?

People who judge other people only on their appearance. 

Peaple who make fun of or bully people with disabilities.

People who drink too much.  Especially the drunks who ridicule non-drinkers.

I would have to say people who need to take a good long look in the mirror before they sit in judgement of 30 types of "other" people! Who has that kind of time anyhow. Always make sure your words are sweet. They go down much better when you have to eat them.

People who feel they are superior because of their education or wealth.
