A person that judges others without getting to know that person or having proof of what they are judging them for. Judgemental people can unfairly judge in many aspects of society: politics; religion; business; race problems, etc.
But maybe it's not possible to NOT be. Don't we all have a first glance at something and think a certain thought about it without really knowing all the information? Isn't that slightly what happens in first impressions - you judge someone based on how they look, or what they say first, or their mannerisms - and is it possible to NOT have a first impression?
Today I went to a local electronics store to talk to a techy person about fixing a broken laptop we have. My first impression of him was not great - he had long broken fingernails (here I go, judging him on his looks) and he wasn't the least bit impressed that I opened the laptop up to try and see if I could fix it myself and made a snide remark about being more knowledgeable about such things than I am (while he was judging me here, I was judging him for assuming I know nothing).
Every day on my walk to work, I pass by no less than a dozen homeless people. Some are still curled up in sleeping bags with large bags next to them, and their shoes very close by. I never judge them, but I know a lot of people who do. For some reason, I think more favorable thoughts towards the homeless people than I do for the obviously wealthy person exiting the hotel further down the road, wearing ultra-expensive clothes and getting into the sports car. I think I have had more positive experiences with people who are extremely poor compared to the extremely wealthy.
But does that make me a bad person for judging them? Isn't it something that we do as humans? We jump to conclusions, we make assumptions, we believe what we want - with NO information to support our beliefs.
So I accept that I may be judgmental. I just hope that I can stay true to keeping an open mind and a kind heart to counterbalance it all.
