What If You're Wearing Big, Ugly Glasses?

// Given at WI?02013 on Mar 2, 2013

When you look at someone you've never spoken to, you make assumptions based on their appearance. You generalize how that individual may act according to how you've seen people with similar characteristics act in the past. You categorize people as athletes, nerds, Goths, potheads and hipsters; to name a few. For example, a part of you could be surprised to find out that a football star achieved a 4.0 gpa. This presentation touches on the influences of evolution, culture and experience to get you to judge people based on the content of their character by taking off your big, ugly glasses of perception.
