People make a call on food joint/schools/skl/company's/ friends/car workshops etc that might influence you without having a first hand experience.

Now am not saying if 10 people you meet have a bad review about a food joint, fine you never go there but if there are 2-3 people speaks bad about things mentioned should you take thier word or make your opinion ?

This is friend is good or bad, would you believe on people or just be cautious and make your own decision?

Everyone is different and looks from thier angle is it fair to wholely trust someone's word of mouth before trying yourselves ?

Totally depends on who that person is and what the situation is. I have a friend of mine whose taste in food I implicitly trust, so I go blindly with her recommendations. However, with people I don't know that well, and in more personal situations I follow the maxim "suno sabki, karo apni" Smile

Judge me on how you find me, not on how someone else finds me.


It's gotta be the right way.

Food and other service businesses thrive on referals, and people mostly judge them right after having tried them. It also depends on what aspect of service /product your friend tried and wasn't happy with in case of -ve review.

 As for other things relating to people /friends etc , most people are multi faceted and how we connect with each person is different for everyone. The good thing is everyone irks someone sometime , heck even Gandhi did. Tongue
