Yes, so true! There is a friend who is looking good, he is socially confident and generous. If I asked him to donate some money for a charity, could I guess how much money he would invest? The answer is not it all! People say you often make mistakes when someone is judged by the halo effect. Even though, I’ve leaned it. When I get to know somebody, I try to find causality by the affect of small detail like their regular habits, vocabularies what they use and their nonverbal communication style etc.
Ironically, I wish I have people around, who can naturally recognize and respect me as I am. This wish itself is ironic thought lol. Wow, that book makes me think about my thoughts again. You must read this book, "Thinking, Fast and Slow"
