There is currently a thread going on about ‘CBC’ vs ‘White Faces’ and a pay scale disparity.
In reading it several instances of admitted [personal “prejudices” are mentioned. I think we all have these and are consciously or unconsciously guided by them in our choices and decisions in life.
I’ll admit to these, and more as the thread progresses.
I dislike being around loud people.
I have always preferred Asian (Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese) Chinese medicine practitioners.
I do not trust French automobiles. Same for lower priced Italian cars.
I have never really thought helicopters should be able to fly. Lord knows I have spent untold hours in them; it just never seemed like a good idea. (lack of glide-slope thing)
I have never liked Nike footwear.
I prefer a man as a bartender.
I think a college degree is not something most people should strive to obtain. It will, ultimately, prove a waste of their time and effort.
While I respect their choice and do not dis-agree with most of the health claims, I view vegetarianism as an unnatural choice for a human being.
I do not like passive-aggressive people. While I do prefer motivated persons, I also am suspect of people who act overly aggressive for no obvious reason.
I tend to judge people by how they treat people who can do nothing for them.
I think sweater-vests are ridiculous.
Most people, myself included, should not wear tight-fitting clothing.
Almost all of the shoes I see for sale on Taiwan are stupid looking. Boxy, square-toed affairs made from material discarded by the local laboratory.
Good manners should be learned in ones youth and constantly improved through ones life.
I dislike people who try to impress me. Good thing that rarely happens.
I dislike people who seek to raise themselves by belittling others.
People who proclaim their self an expert rarely are. Like-wise people who accuse others of “not doing their research” usually have not done their own.
I think people who carry those dogs around are stupid and self-absorbed.
I think one has to reach a certain level of perspective before their opinions are worth taking seriously.
I admit that I have prejudices.
…to be continued.
How about yours?
