Snap Judgment – a judgment formed on the instant without deliberation. (free dictionary)
I put the definition of a snap judgment up because I think we all make them though most would deny it in the PC age. I most definitely try get a hack on people right away and hope they do the same when they’re dealing with me.
This is really necessary when working as an astrologer. I’ve got to connect with a person right away as opposed to traditional therapy situation where people take more tentative steps towards each other and the relationship is allowed (or supposed) to unfold.
To serve, I have to decide what I can and can’t say, how it should be said and just in general what will be most helpful to a person. The faster I can do this, the better but accuracy matters.
I am working this this gal now, I pay her. I met her first, on the phone where she tipped her hand. She said various things that revealed her character so when we met in person and she started to explain she was honest, I waved my hand and said, ‘Don’t worry about it. I can tell you’re honest and already know I can trust you…”
People say similar things to me all the time and this is a Saturn in Libra topic of course. If you can learn to judge people accurately when you first enter a relationship, your life (and theirs) will go a lot smoother.
Are your initial impressions of people usually sound? If yes, where did you get your skill?
