When does judgement turn into judgemental?

Nobody wants to be judgemental, but everybody wants to exercise good judgement.

Judgemental people jump to conclusions. Reacting to a first impression is driven more by one’s internal bias rather than external reality.

Judgemental people are prejudiced. They hear somebody out, but refuse to be affected it. They encounter facts that run contrary to their world view, but refuse to change.

Judgement is a filter through which we choose interact with the world outside. Good judgement is to exercise the right amount of judgement. Too little, and we risk being herded around like livestock. Too much, and it morphs into its evil cousin – judgemental.
