Evaluation Tool

 

Recently somebody was explaining that “there’s a reason” So-and-so doesn’t have many friends.  Later, another lamented being the only one who picks up after herself.  Then I, myself, made yet another observation about a fellow citizen:  “Since when are there are so many horrendous drivers?!”

Pondering all this, it occurred to me: we shouldn’t judge someone just because of one facet of their life.

We need a flow chart.

In order to properly assess, evaluate, and judge people, we must analyze them fully—in order that we may tally gold stars for our pet favorites, meanwhile assessing others’ inferiorities with confidence and finesse.

There are numerous things by which we judge one another; nothing is too petty.  At any rate, we simply must render our opinion of each one.  How they behave regarding everything from politics to gardening is very important.  We must take it upon ourselves to sort the cool dudes from the geeks; those in agreement from those who are not; the wheat from the tares, the sheep from the goats.

And there is no statute of limitations.  Since we can’t possibly review them every day, we must pick a snapshot in time with which to judge them for the rest of their lives.  After all, we’re not mind readers!

Don’t forget to evaluate yourself, as well.  Of course, use pencil on that part—because the formula for self-assessment is never as stringent as that for others, in all categories, across the board.  If necessary, if a person surpasses you in the Virtue category, perhaps you score more highly than they in matters of Opinion.

Last, but not least, it is worthwhile to publicize our final grade of the person at all family gatherings, in the office lunchroom, and on Facebook and Twitter.

For your convenience, the Evaluation Tool is analyzed, categorized, and alphabetized.
