  • I have gotten more on some issues and much less on other issues. I may have traded one for the other. Strange isn't it?
  • With some people, the more they go through in life, the deeper their capacity for empathy and understanding gets. They become less judgmental, although they may not have been very judgmental in the first place. Others get crankier, more frustrated, and harder to please as the years go by. Their lives revolve around judging others, but they probably have no idea how they sound when they rag on people. Your timing on this question is eerie, gtravels. Five minutes before you asked, idne and I were discussing what makes people judge others so harshly.
  • I think it really depends. For example, teenagers think they're always right. Then there's a stage later on in life when people accept others opinions, thoughts, etc. Finally, when people do reach their senior age, they are more judgmental. It may be because they know they can do better or they get picky and fussy about how things should be done. On the other hand, there are some older people who don't care. Overall, I really think it's the way you look at it and what kind of person you trace.
  • It depends on the person.
  • I have definitely gotten more judgmental. I can't stand being around fools or listening or reading their foolish talk or answers. I have come to the point where I lash out at any idiots nearby. Most of them are so so stupid that they don't even recognize my criticism.
  • As I have aged, and I have aged plenty, I have become much less judgmental. This change has made my life happier.
  • I think people get more judgmental as they become more intollerant.
  • I have never been judgmental. When I understand a person's motives or reasons for doing something of which I might disagree, I take a deep breath and don't feel critical at all. Understanding equals compassion.
  • Less..at least that is my story. I was very judgmental when I was younger..life was always black or white..there was nothing in-between. But as one gets older and more experienced, with luck (maybe) one begins to see that people are far more complicated and deserve to be viewed more compassionately and less judgmentally. Everyone is "right" about some things and "wrong" about some things in our eyes..who has the intellect to be "the decider"? None of us..so we need to take another look, give the benefit of the doubt, not assume we "know" anything, and do our best to be kind and helpful, hoping we will receive the same in return! :)
  • Most old people are stuck in their ways so I would say yes.
  • I think that a large number of people get more judgmental when they get older. Of course the older a person gets, the more he or she has the "Well, I have more experience because I'm older, and therefore, I'm wiser" excuse.
  • It sometimes makes me feel uncomfortable being around some of my friends who have gotten more judgmental as they entered their sixties. They expound so much energy on their disdain for people who disagree with them on political issues. I also detect that there is an ever presence of prejudice which further clouds their wisdom and judgment. I believe that people make a conscious choice to be more or less judgmental as they get older. As for me, I choose to be less judgmental because I feel happier being that way.
  • they get more judgemental but less experimental.
  • I've found that judgmental people become more so as they age, and cool people usually stay cool until they die. I don't think aging changes who a person basically is but sort of brings it out more.
  • I think they become more opinionated than judgmental as they get older.
  • from what i've seen people get a lot more judgmental however at the same time, they've become more tolerant too.
  • I have become less judgemental the more i learn ;0)
  • Less in most cases they have much more experience of what life can throw at people.
  • You get less once you are past like probably 25 or something. I know from being 21 that you are still judgmental by a lot. I suppose it depends on the person too. More or less as you get older and wiser you stop caring about things.
  • I am never judgemental about things. I base judgement on the person until they do something to me and then i have accurate judgement on the person. As i am getting older i have always been the same as i was younger.
  • Overall you cannot say, everybody is different, people go through stages. But as we age most people do become more conservative and less tolerant in doing that probably more judgmental. If they are more inclined to expand their intellectual horizons they probably become more understanding and less judgmental yet retain their expanding conservative nature.
  • When i was in primary school everyone just accepted each other, no one was judged or anything. When you're older you turn into a bit of a bitch. Then you just go to a mutual stage.
  • I feel like I have gotten less
  • If we are growing spiritually and mentally, I believe we become less judgmental. I have noted that some people do become more judgmental/meaner as they get older if they are members of certain fundamental churches that I am familiar with on a personal level.
  • I think it depends on the person.I was judgemental when I was young.I thought I knew everything & how things "should" be.Now that I'm 41 & have lived through many of the things I judged harshly I now have the experience to know that not everything will go according to the ideal plan & all sorts of outcomes are ao=-ok.Everything happens the way it should for ea person so they may learn & grow if they so choose.Or they can remain trapped in their own little judgemental bubble.I choose to keep looking at myself & improving therefore becoming less & less judgemental as I age.Although i won't judge you if you prefer not to..LOL
  • I speak only for myself. I've become less judgmental.
  • From what ive seen i think people become more judgmental.
  • As I mature ["get older" or "age"] I find myself getting to be far less judgmental. A LOT of things I used to frown on and stick my nose in the air at, I simply accept. I decided as long as it doesn't effect me or any member of my family, who the devil am I to judge? Thanks for asking your Q! I did my best to answer it. I hope the information helps. VTY, Ron Berue Yes, that is my real last name! Sources: Some personal observations and opinions. "THE University of Hard Knocks" Also known as ("a/k/a") "life's valuable lessons".
  • I think we are less judgemental and more wise!
  • More. Are children judgemental? What about grandpa? case closed!
  • "Ya! We become more wiser and more judgamental but everyone's type of behavior differs, all along!!"
  • This is a bit complicated because in my opinion, you don't really become more or less judgemental. I think that WHAT you are judgemental about is what changes. Not whether or not you are more or less judgemental. Does that make sense? For example, I feel that as I have gotten older, I'm more judgemental about certain things than I used to be but less judgemental about others.
  • Probably more judgemental, no longer being young and idealistic. Just look at a lot of the daytime TV, it is designed to give judgemental people things to complain about (whether trashy talk or 'judge' shows).
  • oh we're definately judgmental throughout our younger years, it just becomes more apparent as we get older!
  • Well in this case, I'm right and you're wrong. And I don't like what you believe and the way you live! Now, get off my grass!! ;-)
  • I know exactly what you are asking. Good question Yes, most do.
  • Some do and it speeds up really fast after a certain point! But not with everyone of course.
  • maybe less.
  • I obviously can't speak for others, but I am a lot less judgmental at 65 than I was at, say 35. I do have less tolerance for sheer idiocy, however, but when it comes to individuals, I try very, very hard to not be judgmental.
  • When we were young we didn't understand much about the issues in this world to be judemental. Then gradually we become more and more judgmental, peaking at maybe around 30 to 50 when we think we know more than the others. After that, in our senior years, like our youth, we again become less and less judgemental, not due to youthful innocence but due to the fact that: 1) We have seen too much and has come to uunderstand the complexity of differences in points of views. 2) We have our own health to worry about rather than arguing about some issues that no sides would agree to.
  • I think when it comes to kids I am more judgemental. When I was growing up(my parents divorced) we were taught to respect people and NOT talk back, not interrupt and most of all to behave in public places. If we didn't we had consequences.
  • I find the older I get the more open minded I get and the less judgemental I seem to be
  • Personally, I'm getting less judgemental. You realize you're not perfect, you're don't know everything, and you're NOT going to live forever. You start feeling like everybody else. Misery loves company;)
  • Great question. I would say less, but man thats not always the case. For me persoanlly, I feel I get less judgmental as I get more mature, but some folks older then me are still so crude.
  • Folks get more set in their ways which in turn does make them quiet a bit more judgmental with age.
  • Definitely more judgmental.
  • More. We have less time and patience too!
