Yes. Though it's only part of what I judge them on.

Yes, certainly as an initial assessment and judgement, but hardly a final one if presented evidence of great intelligence in other areas. Difficulty with language/grammar could be due to many things, from organic (aphasias, dyslexia) to environmental (terribly educational opportunities). Or, simply being not so bright.

I think the joke in the OP went WAY over the heads of a few people.

I used to judge people immediately by the way they write/speak, but now I'm starting to relax a bit. I've met quite a few leaders and analysts that I admire who mix singular/plural or use poor grammar. Still kinda makes me cringe, but I don't dismiss them.

I don't care what color they are, what god they pray to, or where their parents originated... if they speak like an idiot, they likely are just that.
But what if you just so happen to run into a person that speaks like a thug and is brilliant in math or physics.

Yes sir. There is nothing that irritates me more than someone who constantly mistakes their, there, they're, or uses a when it is grammatically correct to use an.

Here's a good example: Rhumb appears to be a generally intelligent guy - but his grammar is horrendous. Personally I wouldn't judge him by the grammar.

Yep. If you can't clearly articulate yourself using the English language (the only language I can effectively critique someone's grammar in), I'm not sure what your problem is. It's not that difficult.

Not always true, I have a friend that speak with a street slang, but yet has a 4.0 gpa. In addition, I have many peers in pharmacy school that do not articulate themselves as well as other pharmacy students but perform better academically.

That's how Hispanic people laugh. What do you have against them?

They can still be a bright individual... but they're poorly choosing to express themselves in a fashion that immediately will disqualify them in many people's minds. Call it stuffy but you set your own bar VERY low when you come across like a "thug".

You're in school... in the working world, you're buddy with the 4.0 GPA will have a VERY hard time getting a job is he can't learn to properly express himself in a mature fashion. I'm involved in all new sales hires at my company and can assure you that anyone who walked in using the work yo (or any variation) would immediately get laughed out of the building... and there is nothing wrong with that as proper English/grammar a mandatory qualification of a worthwhile candidate.

Note: This doesn't mean that they are a good/bad person.. but it immediately leads me to make judgements on their intelligence, maturity, and their social placement. If you think Jay-Z speaks like a thug in business meetings, you're terribly incorrect.

The opening line of Great Gatsby...

"In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.

"Whenever you feel like criticizing any one," he told me, "just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had."
