Avoid being judgemental

Many people have the habit of being judgemental. They like to declare another person's view to be right, wrong, good or bad.

I avoid being judgemental. I recognise that there are many views. Each view is suitable for its set of circumstances.

I can express my views, without having to pass judgement on other people's views. I state my views and explain my reasons. I leave it to other people to decide if they wish to accept or ignore my view.

I hope that more people can express their views without being judgemental or critical. They should avoid being engaged in personal attacks.

Dear Mr Tan,

I'm 25 years old, I have some enquiry regarding ILP, i had bought ILP 1 year ago and i heard the charges will be getting higher as growing older. As i planned to use it as a investment and when i get old then i withdraw all the amonunt and left the minimum 1k inside as i heard from my agent the protection will value will will be there if i don't draw out all the money inside. Any advise regarding this matters? Thanks

Yes, there is a tendency for most of us to be judgemental rather than giving benefit of doubt.

I am still learning to live and let live.

I find a common habit of Singaporeans to be judgemental.

In general, the Americans are different. They are positive and they accept diverse views.

I hope to make Singaporeans aware about this special characteristic.
