    grade my essay. under-rated vs over-rated

    Is it better to be underrated by people or overrated by them.

    While no one wants to be underrated, being overrated is definitely worse. If we are underappreciated there is always an opportunity to repair the others opinion. On the other hand, if people overestimate ones abilities and one let them down the outcome would be deleterious both for him and for others.

    When something or somebody is overrated, much is being expected from them. Thus, when people or products do not meet the demands, they will suffer a magnified criticism. Disappointment often propels anger, which makes the reproach exaggerated or even unjustified. A good illustration could be the problem of highly acclaimed new music band. We can often hear about debuts in the entertainment industry, which seem to promise long-lasting celebrities. However in most of the cases, after recording few albums the bands disappear from the music scene. The public could be enraged even after one unfortunate concert. In such situations the media fuels the dissatisfaction, ending the carrier of the musicians.

    Moreover, the disillusionment is detrimental to an overrated person as well. A perfect example could be any top student. In most of the cases such a student succeeds in most competitions and receives the highest grades in the class. However, if the student once fails in some of the standardizetest, the results could be catastrophic. While used to success, the student might not cope with the failure that he ended with. Being overrated by teachers and parent also does not help him. The diminished pride and the feeling that he disappointed someone’s expectation could let to even a serious depression, and definitely to loss of confidence.

    Contrastingly, if someone is underrated at the beginning, despite the fact that he or she might be discontent with the public opinion, this dissatisfaction can only motivate him or her to excel. Eventually, when such a person achieves success, others could be much more impressed than usually because they were taken totally by surprise. Furthermore, because a person has already overcome criticism he or she is immune to the public discontent. Opposed to those who are overrated, underrated people could only improve themselves and their image in the eyes of others.

    In brief, being appreciated more than you deserve is worse than being underrated. While your abilities are overestimated, you could suffer mental problems when failing, but when your efforts are not admired enough you would only zealously seek the opportunity to improve. In other words, failing when you are underrated, you lose nothing, but when being overrated, everything. Moreover, when an highly acclaimed person succeeds, there is no special interest in that, but when a dark horse wins all eyes are directed towards him.

    Hey greenhills, your essay is decent, though there are a few issues that I found when reading it. For example you should focus on one specific topic/argument. For example you say:

    "When something or somebody is overrated", you follow by saying "much is being expected from them. You start by giving two examples "something" and "somebody" and in the same sentence you revert back to "them" as in the "somebody". You should stick to the "somebody" rather than adding too much. You can certainly make your point with just one rather than two.

    why do you guys all right like that?

    you go no one like beings underrated then go but overrated is worse ?

    just say being underrated sucks. Many people underrate people based on first impressions. But most often they surprise them.

    conclusion first impressions are limiting. This is why when you make a decision its important to have multiple dimensions to make a proper evaluation.

    I don't know what your talking about but the topic s related to judgement We underrate a person based on first impression. does two minutes really tell you about the character and qualities that a person brings?

    Overrating is based on a glorified resume. This is why they often dont live up to expectations.

    I pretty liked your essay. You have a good structure of sentences, though there are a few abstract phrases and you should keep aside from them. Also I would advise you to write global evidences taken from history or literature. All in all, I give you a score of 4-5.
