I think one of the problems with judgement is that we so often do not have enough information to make a truly informed one. This may be a matter of semantics, but a thoughtful conclusion based on as much information as can be gathered, is usually preferable, at least to me.

Also, judgements tend to be so polarizing. As others have indicated, rarely (actually never) are people all bad or all good. Making a judgement IMO, tends to put people into these all or nothing categories. Sort of a throwing the baby out with the bathwater type thing.

I think embedded in the concept of judgement is the notion of "acceptable risk" - which is the amount of potential threat we are willing to tolerate. I think this threshold of risk varies from person to person, or even intrapersonally given a situation.

When I first started my recovery process my threshold for acceptable risk was very very low. I have since raised that threshold a considerable amount and I simply cannot convey how much richer my life is as a result.

Just my two cents.
