It's Never What You Think

I have a 80% rate of success with my first impressions and my assessment of situations. It's not a boast, I keep track of these things. First impressions count for a lot, but they are never 100% accurate. Things need to be researched, people need to be experienced, before you seal that final judgment on them. Part of the problem we're having these days is, too many people are accepting what they think as 100% accurate. The other part is, people are accepting what other people think as 100% accurate. The world and all the people in it are far
too nebulous, complicated and unique for blanket assumptions.

That being said, all the people I like, I knew when I first saw them I'd like them 50% of the time, the other 50%, I had to give them a second look.
