A person’s worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honor, kindness and trust, no longer seem important. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this opinion?

The question of whether
people
are judged by their characteristics or according to their social prestige is a quite debatable topic today. It is considered by some that
people
are mostly judged by their wealth and social position, not by their core
values
. Both sides will be examined and I will discuss why I disagree with the given statement.
Firstly
, ethics and
values
hold great importance in life, both personally and professionally. Nowadays,
people
are being judged by their social status,
instead
of their
values
of life.To illustrate, take the Indians
for instance
, they are very religious by nature,
however
Add a comma

they forget their
values
for little gains.
Moreover
,
Values
are those acts we learn in our childhood from our parents and relatives.
Hence
,it is understandable for other
people
's emotions and respecting their culture and lives.
Also
, no business and profession can progress without trust,
values
and ethics. Without these factors,all your degrees and certificates make no sense, if you do not know how to respect other
people
.
Besides
, good ethics and
values
depict your country, culture and heritage.
Consequently
,it builds up a higher reputation for a country.
On the other hand
, there are celebrities that are judged by their material belongings and their social dignity.
This
happens as some want to take advantage of their well-off acquaintance.
For instance
, Paris Hilton, who is a well-known person, is seen with a lot of
people
around her.
Although
, that does not mean that they know her personally.
Consequently
, I think that there are situations where a person's position on the social ladder is more crucial than their inner traits. In conclusion, many think that someone's worth can be determined by their assets and their status, not by their personality.
This
essay discussed both views and drew conclusions that
people
are ought not to be judged by the previously mentioned criteria.
