A Book CAN be Judged by Its Cover

It’s been a week, and now is the third week of February. How was your valentine, good? I hope so. Today I write about misconception that people usually make. There’s a saying don’t judge a book by its cover and this was made as a reason for a lot of people who are too lazy to dress up, or don’t care of their appearance. Now I give you reason why a book cover is really important. Enjoy.

People usually say don’t judge a book by its cover or don’t judge a person by its looks, but it’s a human nature to judge something by it looks since in most occasion when we have something new or meet someone new, we see it first before we touch it or hear it. You cannot resist not to judge people by its look, because it happens spontaneously and instantly, for example when you see a person with beard, scars in his or her face, fierce look, and dirty, and then I’m sure most of you will think negative of this person even though this person has a heart of an angel. Or a person with a neat and clean clothes, very polite, and looking good, and then I’m sure most of you will think positive of this person even though for example he is a killer or evil person.

What I want to say is, content or a person personality is really important, but appearance is also as important as the content or personality. Appearance give first impression to other people who look at and first impression is really important. If people already feel and think that a person is bad because of the impression that person give, then people will have trouble to trust that person, especially when that person do a good thing. First impression will stay deep down on the mind of people and even some people unconsciously labeled people as good or bad just from the appearance, because they don’t know really well that person.
Other case that show how important appearance is happen at the job interview. Usually at the job interview, the questioner or employer will look at your appearance first, whether your clothes are neat or not, etc, because it shows who you are and what is your habit. If you appear bad, then surely you have no chance to get a job. A person appearance, from the way of clothing, talking, eating, etc, usually reflect that person personality, sense, and knowledge. 

In conclusion, it’s true that a book shouldn’t judged by its cover but its cover can tell a lot about that book, the same goes for people.

So from today, why don’t all of us recheck our appearance, is it good enough, or not. If not, find a way to improve it, remember to have a good appearance doesn’t mean to spend money, you can do it by dressing neatly, keep your face clean or at least in check, and learn how to appear appropriate in many occasions. Everything will be smooth if people have positive impression on you.

Let’s make people in this world look better.
