How to use "Misjudge" in context?

One of the most common errors we make when making judgments is what is called "misjudging." When we make a judgment, we form an opinion without enough information. We often form our opinion before we have all of the information we need, and this can lead us to make mistakes. For example, if we misjudge someone's intelligence, we might think they are not smart enough when in reality they might just not have studied the topic thoroughly. Misjudging can also happen with emotions. For example, if we mistake anger for hostility, we might act in a way we would not if we knew the person was angry but not hostile.
