I don't feel the video changes my thoughts but it provides a good explanation of how our perception of someone based on appearance in rooted in cultural & social norms. Human nature is to begin assessing our environment based on our senses alone. Visual cues are overwhelmingly the first of the senses to be triggered. Because of this, appearance is often first and foremost in our assessment of anyone or anything, the proverbial first impression. A first impression is simply that and can never be changed. However, I do believe how we react to that first impression is most important. What immediately pops into my mind when I see someone is always going to be somewhat based on their appearance. Whether or not I let that guide my interaction with the person is totally on me. Striving to be a person who sees beyond the external and withholds judgement of someone until further information can be gleaned is, for me, a learned, conscious task.
