It is formed upon the very first meeting of two people. Everyone makes and receives first impressions.

It reflects who we are, how we carry ourselves, and how we represent the company we work for. All employers look for someone with a favorable appearance that sets a person to be competent, professional, and confident that will make an impact to their company....   [tags: physical appearance, self confidence]

Clinging to First Impressions - Section 1 The concept I am going to discuss is clinging to first impressions. Clinging to first impressions means that when we originally meet someone, we decide what they are like from that one time of meeting them. A first impression is what causes someone to like or not like someone depending on the kind of person they get along with. Interplay states, “If our impressions are accurate, they can be useful ways of deciding how to respond best to people in the future (124).” Carlin Flora compares a first impression to a Polaroid picture of someone that never fades....   [tags: Psychology]

What is a Person? - What is a Person. What am I. On the surface, this question seems so ridiculously simple that one may feel that it is unnecessary to even supply a verbal answer. I am, obviously, a human being, a person. However, when using this label "person" to describe myself, I am hurling myself into one of philosophy's most heavily debated topics since the existence of mankind. The primary task when dealing philosophically with person, or "self", is to clarify what exactly the term embodies and represents....   [tags: Papers] 960 words

First Impressions - We all have been in a situation where we meet new people for the first time. Either enrolling in a new school, interviewing for a job, or just simply going to a party and meeting new people who happen to be at the party as well; our lives are filled with first encounters and we develop impressions about those people we encounter. To simplify the understanding a first impression is “like a Polaroid picture” (Flora,2004).

First Impressions - In every first encounter with another person, we make judgments about them almost immediately based on a few simple factors. In the first few seconds upon meeting a new acquaintance we will take in and subconsciously process their age, choice in style of clothes, hair, their posture and the way that they carry themselves. In that short time we will form subconscious opinions about them based on our own personal prejudices and bias.

First Impressions - First impressions are always used in setting the tone when you first meet someone. Without the luxury of knowing the persons background, you initially judge someone by the way that person introduces themselves and how they come across to you. By coming across, I mean the way a person carries themselves. For example, if the person comes across as shy and introverted, you tend to think of that person as timid and somewhat weak. However, if that same person comes across as outgoing, confident (but not to confident) and easy to talk to, you look at that person as someone you can count on and possibly a leader....   [tags: Communication ]

First Impressions - First impressions are what set the tone in any situation, personal or professional, and ultimately determine how we proceed behaviorally in that situation. Within a matter of seconds, a person will make their assessment of another person or a situation – an assessment that will carry through the remainder of the relationship. And while what we say may have an impact on how another person perceives us, studies have shown that much of our first impressions are based on body language.

Most times the first impression of someone is not the way they truly are.
