DOES APPEARANCE SPEAK?
How much appearance says about a person.
We live in a world where whether you like it or not, you are judged by how you look, how you dress, how you compose yourself, how you speak and even how you go by your daily duties. Most of us judge a person through appearance since its what is first visible to us. Appearance does tell pretty much about a person.
Personal appearance would determine the mental image that everyone will have of you. So how you look, how you present yourself will speak alot about you.
Reasons why appearance is important in our society
It’s sad to say but we live in a society where your appearance will guarantee one a job opportunity, a society where appearance will determine the type of company you tag along with, a society where appearance will determine the kind of services you can be offered in hospitals, in schools, at the place of work, a society where people are accused of abusing drugs just because of how they dress or how they appear.
Below are reasons why appearance is important :
- Increases self confidence : dressing properly will not only increase your self confidence, but also impress and attract other people. it is important in earning respect at school, at the place of work.
- it’s an indication of self respect : How you look tells much about you and how you feel about yourself. Dressing well, being properly groomed how good you feel about yourself and also the amount of respect you have for yourself.
- Boosts self esteem : Whenever one feels that they look good, then definitely they’ll feel better about themselves. You can boost your self esteem by taking care of yourself.
- Sexual attraction : Sexual attraction starts with finding a person physically attractive. Though not the only reason, but initial attraction to someone for their appearance can’t be denied.
Does appearance speak the truth about a person? Sometimes you may judge the appearance of a person without knowing the reasons behind how people conducts themselves. Whether good or bad the reason may be, it’s more of the interpretation.
Would it not be beneficial if we suspend judgements until we understand the reasons behind it rather than making inconclusive judgements about a person just for their appearances. People often judge incorrectly just for how one appears. Throught history, people are judged because of the Society’s stereotypes.
The clothes someone wears does not reflect who they’re. Neither does it make someone a certain stereotype. But the society we’re in, sees things differently. If someone dresses well, we’ll run to the conclusion that the person is rich but at times it might be that the person has a good sense of style. Moreover, if a person walks in torn clothes we are quick to tag them poor.
can we ask ourselves, does appearance speak? Is it right to brand people names, judge their sexuality………. Just because of the impression or their appearance? Would be glad to get your feedback on the comment section below.
