I don't thinks so..... but. I believe I have been quick to judge at times. And I have learned that first impressions don't necessarily match up to the person.

Have you ever found yourself liking someone for no reason?

I like you... πŸ‘

No likes and dislikes without a reason.

No, but I sometimes like people that it turns out I probably shouldn't.

No, I have not. I go by: You can't tell a book by it's cover. Give them a chance, you may be very surprised.

Very often. When I meet someone for the first time, I almost always like or dislike them immediately for no fathomable reason. More often than not, that like or dislike turns out to be justifiable - the people I immediately like tend to turn out to be good, reliable, trustworthy people; those I dislike tend to be the opposite.

For the most part, I give everyone a chance, You never know what goes on in their life, I learned years ago, from thinking I didn't like a person, or would never like them, and after getting to know them better, I found out how wrong I was.

Not likely possible. There is always a reason...you may not understand or be able to express why you do not like someone, but there will always be a reason.

No. But I have avoided people due to their negative aura.

You can learn a lot from the things that make you uncomfortable. Dive into reason. Don’t just blindly avoid.

Disliking someone for no reason sounds like anti-social behavior or socio-pathic behavior. Have you thought about therapy? I advise seeking therapy from a professional.

I try to keep the instinct of a child inside me. Sometimes you cannot explain why you donβ€˜t like someone. Iβ€˜m watching those people cautiously over a period of time to get sure if Iβ€˜m wrong or right. I try not to judge someone from the start.

How about the vibe you feel?

That’s probably more it.

Yes. I only have so much like to spread around.

Yes especially if my dog didn't like them.

When I meet someone new, I often have an immediate sense of being drawn in by them or repelled by them. I believe there are reasons, conscious and unconscious - sometimes obvious and more often much less so. My brain, heart and gut decide!

I’ve become fascinated by brain science and it turns out most of our decisions (probably all) are made subconsciously.

Probably turned off a lot of people with that comment.

To answer your question: Yes - it happens fairly often, And I’m typically suspicious of people who seem to β€œlike” everyone.

Depends on how you define "dislike" if you are talking about social media, no. If you mean fail to like a person, probably but in that event there is likely a reason even if I am not fully aware of the reason for my emotional response.

Yes, I have a co-worker who I can't stand tp speek to. It might be his politics, but it started before I knew his views. It just seems like he's trying too hatd to impress.

Yes, but those are reasons..

@Kayterade5348 it started out for no reason, I think I found reasons to not like him. I have known other people with which I have the same issues, but I don't dislike them.

No I don't go that far. I do come across people who's face I'd like to stand on but that's because they're sniveling little gobshites...e.g. Nigel Farage and Michael Gove #twunts

Yes. I , unfortunately, have an instant dislike to individuals with very large heads. I don’t have a clue why. But, when it is someone I have to deal with personally, over time, I have to work to overcome that dislike.

When I first saw Trump on TV, promoting his (ghost written) biok "The Art of The Deal", I immediately disliked him without knowing why at the time.

I fidn my intuition about people is usually pretty good. Every time I ignored my intuitive feeling about a person, Ihave regretted it, as the personlater screwed me over in one way or another.

I think our instincts or immediate likes and dislikes evolved to help us better survive our fellow humans. When I listn to my instincts, I do much better than when I don't.

No, but I've had some pretty weak reasons.

Reminds me of the old joke by Bob Dole, the funniest politician I ever heard of and someone I liked a lot, even tho he was a Repub. He was the master of the dry humor and terse jokes. I think he was talking about Phil Gramm of Texas, but the joke went like this. Gramm asked Dole why people seemed to take an instant dislike to Gramm. Dole replied dryly, "Saves time".
