Are we prejudiced while making personal choices?When it comes to talking to someone in your circle many people tend to follow suggestions of others. For example, in your new workplace you will find new colleagues, new boss and absolutely a different environment. There you may find a person or two who will say something about some other persons and will warn you about certain characters of that person which may jeopardize your career. The same thing may happen in your neighbourhood, where some people's views or suggestions influence our choices.
Now, the problem is those people who are saying something terrible about some other persons may have some personal grudge against those persons and want us to be by their side. Sometimes, the warnings may be real also and it turns out that keeping in touch with them is a real headache. But as long as you are not starting a conversation you will never know how that person is. I think a mere conversation with someone is not going to harm you in any case, but few people avoid that too just by listening to those warnings from the others. Since talking to someone or choosing associates are absolutely personal choices, then why others views are given importance on personal choices without verification?
