    I don't really care what others say. Because the truth about a person can be misconstrued quite easily.

    Also, I am the type that usually dislikes people at first.

    i never allow others to have any influence on how i view someone. if i dont like someone is either cuz my vibes don't take dem , or via personal interaction.

    Only a total JackAss would let others' opinions on someone else dictate their own personal opinion on them.

    Face value is the way to go.

    With that said, if people are saying things about a person, there must be something to what their saying...something...so I'd take heed, but not let it influence me, just look out for certain things.

    Basically...take it with a grain of salt.

    hahaha, a girlfriend of mine and I realized that we each didn't like each other at first and didn't know that until we finally told each other 3 years later...

    I work soley on my impression, because the person's character usually reveals itself in a number of ways before someone else can tell me. Nice post, because I was just having this convo yesterday.

    I need to change that because lately I realized I let of lot potentially good people walk on by.

    But I always tell people once I am cool with them. Like "You know I didn't like you right?"

    I find it funny how some ppl are quick to say they let their personal interactions form their impressions of ppl, but you turn around and they sopping up every piece of gossip or story they hear about a person and act according to what they've heard
