Smart phonesIt is wrong to judge people by what they wear, how they look, and what they carry but people do judge you by all that. It is not just people – even computers review you!

It is very surprising that a phone can change the way people look at you and the way a computer treats you but it is true. This happens. While you may be completely against it, it is probably safer to buy a good phone so that you have a positive impact on people. Sometimes, people are so harsh in judging you that they won’t take you seriously if you don’t have a great phone!

Judgment Based on Age of the Phone

In a study, a great number of people (men and women both) confessed that they do assess a person based on the phone he or she carries. An old phone or a damaged phone can have a negative impact about you. If you carry an old phone, people will think you are don’t know anything about technology or worse, they will think you are ‘poor’.

Judgment Based on the Platform

Android, iPhone, and BlackBerry are the three major platforms. People will judge you based on which one you use. Android users are apparently more polite while iPhone users think they are the most attractive. BlackBerry users, according to the study, are mostly in health, property, and finance fields. BlackBerry users it seems have the healthiest long-term relationships when compared to Android and iPhone users.

How Computers Judge You

Researchers say that computers can judge you based on how often you use your smartphone to send emails and use social media, what type of ringtones you apply, and how often you make calls. For example, if you have an unusual ringtone, it will be easy to judge that you are new to smartphones and you are quite overexcited about it. If you are an extrovert, you will use your smartphone to make more calls. If you use it to send emails frequently, you are conscious about yourself.

What is your take on this? Are you going to rethink and replace your phone?

Entrepreneurial Learning

You will be extremely surprised to see that people actually assess you based on your phone. Carrying an old phone may actually work against you. People may categorize you as poor or sparing. In fact, even computers judge you!
