Judge like you mean it

Glacier National Park fall foliage
The best fall foliage in 50 years. Full of Grizzly Bears too.

i think the human nature of judging people comes from our survival instinct to evaluate predators and prey.

Instinct.

Survival.

We have had to learn, and hone, the ability to quickly and accurately evaluate danger and opportunity.

Why?

Two extremes at opposite ends of a survival spectrum.

We get eaten or we starve.

So when i “judge” a person or situation, it’s in our Neanderthal DNA.

i must judge a room when i speak, or a salesperson when i open our front door.

Judging is a survival technique.

But when it’s done with ill will or unadmirable intent, the question becomes, “Why would you do that?”

How much Neanderthal instinct remains?

Be a noticer.

 

Completely focused on the crowd of vultures to the left, something told me to stop and look over my right shoulder.

Perhaps this is the last remaining neanderthal DNA – the instinct to always be aware of things all around you.
