    I'm sorry, but maybe I'm just good at juding people and being right

    Honestly, back in the day they told you not to judge but I've found a good solid 95% of the time I can judge someone and be completely correct about them. Hell, on this website alone I can generally look at someone's avatar, signature, location, and their title to get a fair of idea of their real personality.

    Example, somebody with "darker" anime imagery and and a naming convention like Dark, Shadow, etc coupled with their location as something like "Darkness", "Void....." etc, I think it would be fair to pass an accurate judgment that they are someone trying to be a non-conformist goth in high school (although how these goth kids reject all mainstream ideals with the same ideas as each others and act, dress, basically carbon copies of each other makes them non-conformist is beyond me, but okay).

    Or another example, people with a numerical naming convention (such as Genericname42) that type with a lot of emoticons and use acronyms like ofc, tbh, nel, etc. tend to be foreign teens, simply because I've encountered few Americans in the online community that use ofc and nel as acronyms.

    Please note, mods, that this is not a trolling topic but rather discussions of stereotypes that do represent accurate judgments of someone.

    Ya I'm totally a Goth in High School...

    Don't Judge lest be Judged. The human soul isn't skin deep in everyone. Also don't trust a book by it's cover.

    The only time it's correct to judge a book by its cover is in a job interview. I've done the same as you, and sometimes I've been completely right and other times I've been so ridiculously wrong that it boggles my mind. The day you find out the super, ridiculously preppy-looking, stereotypical blonde girl with the valley-girl voice is a computer science major getting straight A's is the day you toss your hands in the air and go, "well shit".

    I'm gonna have to say that wasn't a very good example. Many people like the ones I know would put that stuff in their avatar and aren't like that. Maybe a little on the nerdy side but not Goth.

    Do me now!

    If you could even remotely guess my personality to within a respectable percentage would be the day I am shocked and awed.
    If you met me in person, yeah I'm as easy to read as a book comprised of naught but pictures, but here?

    From your Name, and your Sig of Madonna, i can judge that you have Mummy issues, and weren't hugged enough as a child.

    YAY I CAN JUDGE PEOPLES!(or just pull assumptions out of my ass)

    Also, i learnt most of the Acronyms such as TBH and OFC, from Americans, true story, and ETC isn't an online community acronym. it is part of the English language.

    Your avatar is Chrono Cross, and you live in Salem, OR. If you actually like Chrono Cross, and you actually do live in Salem, OR, I'd have to report you for identity theft because out here I thought I was the only damn person who liked Chrono Cross!

    I think you're confusing "judge" and "stereotype".

    I'd imagine if you actually got to know said girl you'd realize that your first impression was 99% right.

    If he has the right idea then you have the wrong idea.

    Thinking you know everything about someone from the way they look is ludicrous. You only see what you want to see, and in your case it's you looking back at yourself.
