To reserve judgment, I think that means that ,that you want to say something to somebody but you cant so you're reserving that judgement of that person. Is kind of like don't judge a book by its cover.

I think that its a type of judgement that goes deeper then just the outside, but whats on the inside

I would agree with Mike and say that reserving judgment mean that it is a deep judgment were you are judged as your true self.

i think that it means you cant judge something to early without knowing something. You may miss out on something awesome because of the judgement.

I think it means that instead of passing judgment right away on someone or something, you hold it in (reserve) and wait till you have enough information on that one someone or something, and then you can judge.

To me it is important to reserve judgment of others. I feel this way because once you get an image of someone in your head it is hard to change that image. And judging someone based on no prior knowledge of them is unfair.

I think to reserve judgment would be to not judge anyone right away. Give time to understand them and get to know them instead judging them when you first meet them.

I think that reserving a Judgement might mean that you are not truly saying what you are really thinking. Mabey it might be calling someone nice when they really are a mean hurtful person.

I think reservng judgement means to keep your true feelings about someone bottled up inside. That may not mean you completly keep all the things you think to yourself, but most of them you do.

To me, to reserve judgment of people means to in a way humble yourself. If one were to judge everyone they came across, they would seem as if they hold themself at a higher position than everybody else, or look down upon other people.

I think the statement to reserve judgment means do not judge someone until you know everything about that person or until you put yourself in to their place, an example of this is the old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover”

I think that reserving judgement means to keep your thoughts to yourself rather than calling someone out on something right away. Instead you wait to see who the person really is, and to avoid making a conclusion about how you feel about an individual.

To reserve judgement, I think it means to keep to yourself and not really express your opinion. It means to stay out of the conversation until you understand better and get a better explanation of what is being discused.

To reserve judgment simply means to not judge people and give them a chance. Nick talks to so many people and you rarely see people that dont judge a person by there appearance.

I think that to reserve your judgment means to understand that you don't understand. You don't completely understand someone else's life so you have no right to judge. No two lives are the same so you have no basis for judgment.

I think that to reserve your judgement means to not jump the gun about making opinions about people but learning from their first impression and allow your opinions to change about then in the future if need be. Reserve judgement is like the saying don't judge a book by its cover.

I think to reserve judgement is to keep your comments and criticism to yourself. If the judgement you reserve is negative, that shows that you are considerate of the other persons feelings.

jamie said...

I think reserving judgment is basically not judging someone when you first meet them. Instead of immediately judging someone when you first meet them, you wait until you truly know the person to judge what you think about them. In doing this you’re avoiding the wrong first impression. Sometimes someone might come off as a mean person at first but in reality is extremely nice. If you reserve your judgment you won’t always see them as a mean person, but instead understand them for who they really are.

Reserve judgement to me means that you think before you act. It means that you might be judging a wrong doing but you might not say anything because things might get worse after saying it.

The term "reserve judgement" to me means not giving your two sense. Not to tell someone something that you know would hurt there feelings. Personally i dont like reserved judgement. Due to the fact that if everyone used reserved judgement then the truth would never come out.

Reserve Judgement to me, means that you don't judge someone based on what they might tell you, or what their actions may be. This means to me that you don't keep a belief of what you thing that person might be like at all.

viktor said...

When someone says to reserve a judgment on someone it means that you should not just judge them on their appearance but you should get to know them before you make any judgment about them. SO when you see someone that looks cocky or something you really don't like how their attitude looks to be, you should get to know them and you might find out that you have a lot in common about them. Also I think it means that you think something about someone but you just don't tell them to their face you keep it inside of you.

To reserve judgement is to not jugde someone right away and tell them what to do, but to keep you opinion to yourself unless it is for the other person's own good. In the end only God can judge us correctly so what is the point of misunderstanding someone who you may not completly know.

kfrance said...

Well if we analyze the two words we can eventually understand what the term really means. To reserve something means keep back or save for future use. And judgement is usually the determination on a certain matter. So I guess you say it means to hold back a decision to subject someone.
