Many give the term "shallow" too narrow a meaning by stating it only refers to those who judge others purely on looks. Here is a list of characteristics that actually define a person as shallow:
1. Their thoughts are mainly concerned with unimportant things, such as the way they look or how others are judging them
2. They are unable to connect with others on deep emotional levels
3. They make judgements based on trivial, surface-level information

4. They are overly concerned with material things
Joe is a very shallow guy. During his day at school he decided that Kevin was weird because his hair is really long. Later that day, Joe told Mark he ought to display the brand he is wearing. He also decided Mark was cooler than Kevin because Mark has a Mustang and plays football.

A person who cannot access the imaginative, creative, understanding, emotional part of their brain. Shallow people are brainwashed by the media, they can't think for themselves. They tend to like hilary duff, britney spears, and mainstream rap and the little mainstream rock that is played. They serve no purpose to this earth. Their future holds long lines of angry customers that want their hamburger, and the words "we love to see you smile".

They cannot see the little things, like nature, all they see is what the media tells them to see.

::Andy is the new guy in town::

Jake: "I really don't know who Andy is.. He seems cool, but who cares about that. I could care less if he's going through a hard time or not.. He's a good looking cat though and I'm just worried about having a decent looking wingman."

Tony: "Yea, I have no idea if he's doing good right now or not.. Hopefully his image will attract hott chics. Don't you just love being shallow?"

Jake: "Yea, for sure. I also like being a prick to everyone, including my girlfriend"
