    I eye up plenty of people, including obese people, poofy looking people, and people who dress like chavs and scruffs. The funny part is giving them scorns, and seeing them get angry lol... I don't know nor care about them, why should I care? Such is human life and human society, and nobody is owed anything, including civility.
    I know you don't care but they're probably thinking why is that stuck up **** giving me evils, probably because he is a stuck up ****.

    If on a bus, I sit next to a window on the top deck and watch life go by; if on a train, I'll keep staring at adverts, read a newspaper or pretend I'm sleeping (while actually trying to avoid eyeing people up). I'm the sort of person who day dreams and most of the time has empty thoughts!

    "Cheap shirt and trousers, George tie..."

    The person has a low end job/salary, especially if he's not wearing proper shoes.
    One could assume that that were the case, however that is still an assumption and cannot be know with any true certainty.

    I know people that wear cheap cloths and have mid range salaries (30k+) - in fact in sectors such as publishing, public sector etc this is fairly common.

    Maybe you just haven't come into contact with a very broad spectrum of people?

    Oh, and I forgot to say that I ALWAYS judge negatively anyone who has their music playing out loud. Especially if it's some crap R&B/hip hop, which it nearly always is. Just what is the point?

    I didn't say it wasn't. I'm saying that it's unneccassary to be so arrogant/pompous while you do it. You can do it if you want, I'd just suggest you shouldn't.

    I just think it's quite sad. I would say it's to do with identity - people wanting to express their affiliation with a subculture that they identify with?

    You could suggest the negative judgement based upon this expression actually validates their affiliation.

    I can't help staring at chavs and ****** people, or obese people. it's because they're so low in my eyes, that I get an automatic sense of disgust.

    Yes of course. But Jung suggested that such judgements are very revealing about the people that make them.

    Slightly OT but there was an interesting study a few years ago about the development of facial recognition in infants:

    Potentially it suggests that there are neurological reasons for certain generalisations/racial stereotypes e.g. all black people look the same.

    The beliefs of psychologists don't do much for me.

    Mind you though, this study only involves babies so same can't be said about adults. Maybe their facial recognition ability increases as they grow older.
