Look at yourself before you judge others

So yesterday evening I was sitting down with a group of fellow classmates and we were reviewing some problem sets with the instructor.  We were asked to work on various problems then show the answer choices we came up with via our "fingers" by representing the number of the answer to the multiple choice.

There was this Mexican girl that was sitting in front of me that was very friendly but seems to be a bit of an airhead.  I sat far enough ahead where I could only see her answer but no one else's answers. I felt confident that I was right and can't believe she kept getting her answers wrong.

Guess what?  I was wrong in a lot of those questions as well (if not more).  This definitely taught me that whenever I feel like I'm better than someone else, I'm probably not.  In fact, because I am judgmental, I was probably worse.
