Physical Appearance..

How do you feel when people judge you based only on your physical appearance? Honestly I hate the feeling. I guess the quote is always true that "you can't judge a book by its cover". Do you think when people judge you based only on your physical appearance, they just try to be honest or they are just those outspoken people? Does ethic play a role in here?

It's just seem funny to me that in the so-called modern era, some people still snap someone's personality based on his/her looks only. I don't say that it's wrong. I'm just saying that those who often judge others by their physical appearance only, should keep their first thought for themselves until they finally found out the real people behind that physical appearance. Don't you just think so? I'm trying to say that it's not really right to jump straight to the conclusion without taking a proper look on someone.
I've once studied about "Halo Effect" on my management class. Based on wikipedia "Halo Effect" can be described as;
The halo effect is a cognitive bias whereby the perception of one trait (i.e. a characteristic of a person or object) is influenced by the perception of another trait (or several traits) of that person or object. An example would be judging a good-looking person as more intelligent. The halo effect is involved in Harold Kelley's implicit personality theory, where the first traits we recognize in other people influence our interpretation and perception of later ones because of our expectations. Attractive people are often judged as having a more desirable personality and more skills than someone of average appearance.

Here's what I found more about why people judge from physical appearance only, from eHow:
Scientific research suggests that opinions based on looks alone have been present since ancient man. Much of this strategy is based on fear and the avoidance of that which may be dangerous. Looks are the first criteria we have to assess a person. Communication was limited, so there weren't other methods to judge a person's character or suitability for mating. Most of what is considered attractive is directly related to physical attributes that indicate health. Luckily, unlike ancient humans, we can now say that these impressions are only our first impressions, not our only impressions. We must be aware of our human predisposition toward forming impressions based on looks and fight to judge people according to better criteria.

I am hoping that less and less people judged other people based only on physical appearance. As humans, we have brains and logical thinking that we can use to see more into people. It's such a waste if we try to make a whole perception of someone based only on how they look, what they wear and so on. What is more important is to be able to listen to what you feel inside and what matters to you. Try not to get carried away with what other people say about you. You know yourself more than they know you. And just like the wise man say that

Appearances are often deceiving. (Aesop)

people always judge me on my appearance but when they know me they say to me that they where wrong... but it still hurt...

I know it hurts..but maybe it's a lesson people will learn about how not to judge us just by looking with appearance...

There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance. See the link below for more info.

Easter and the events that are related to it are moveable meals which don't fall on a settled date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which take after simply the cycle of the sun; rather, its date is settled on a lunisolar timetable like the Hebrew date-book. The First Council of Nicaea developed two benchmarks, opportunity of the Jewish date-book and general consistency, which were the primary rules for Easter explicitly set around the board. No inconspicuous components for the estimation were demonstrated; these were worked out before long, a technique that took many years and made different conflicts. It has come to be the main Sunday after the religious full moon that occurs on or soonest after 21 March, however figurings move in East and West.
