- Merriam-Webster Online (m-w.com) gives a definition, saying in part “2: characterized by a tendency to judge harshly.” I don’t think this goes far enough, as it unwittingly includes the judging of inanimate objects, and leaves out the emphasis on moral judgments. Still, the word “harshly” is right on.
→ Note: A few sources quote Webster’s 1913 (unabridged?) dictionary, whose definition is much better than the online one; also includes a beautiful, complete list of associated words.
- Dictionary.com says it better.
- Gary E. Antion defines “judgmental” and insightfully adds “often specifically, judgments considered to be lacking in tolerance, compassion, objectivity, etc.”
These short quotes are included under the fair use doctrine.
