    judge by or on appearance(s)

    Hello everyone,
    Could you, please, tell me which is correct:

    Judge someone by their appearance(s) or on their appearance(s)?
    I've seen both:

    Do we judge people by their appearances?

    They judge your on your appearance

    Thank you

    It's usually in the singular.

    You may hear: "You shouldn't judge people/someone by their appearance."

    You may hear: "They judge you based on your appearance."

    Without a word like their, it is often used in the plural- Never judge by appearances.
