Jumping to conclusions


People make judgments with no facts to base them on. That method seems to be common. Why does that happen?

I know that from personal experience when people tell me about my personality without ever meeting me or talking with me. How did they make such a judgment? Beats me.

Prejudice, assumptions, myths and imagination. Life is strange.

Drawing conclusions from no facts or very little info is not rational. Yet that occurs almost all the time.

I am reminded of James Baldwin observing he had to go to France to be disliked for his own personality rather than his race.

I have had people who claim to be Christians tell me they hate immigrants.

I have had people who claim to be Christians tell me they think Trump is a truthful and great man....
