It can also mean "being conscious of the nuances of one's surroundings"—which is complimentary, too.

comment Can we say something vulgar instead of “to bits”?
I think you'd have a more impressive sentence if you said, "A rocket explodes to Smerdyakovs."

comment Is there a term for the character trait of assuming things about people?
Presumably the judgments that the person so swiftly forms are based on his or her applying some method of shorthand assessment. Often such systems of snap judgment are founded on various stereotypes that typically entail inferring multiple characteristics of a person from one or two or a very few observed characteristics. So I would be tempted to call the judger's character trait "a tendency to stereotype."

Hi, Victor, and welcome to English Language & Usage. Although your response to the poster's question is somewhat related to that question, it is framed as another question. In such a situation, if you are looking for an answer to the follow-up question you ask, it is better to post it as a new question on its own page, with a link to this question if you think that might be helpful. The answer boxes on this page, however, are reserved for answers to the original question, preferably with a reasoned explanation and citations to legitimate authorities when possible. Thanks!
