First Impressions Last!

We’ve all heard those famous words, ‘you only get one chance to make a first impression’. In both personal and business situations, people form opinions of us in a matter of seconds, so read this useful article to give yourself the greatest chance of making the best possible first impressions.

It takes less than a second!

When you are introduced to someone new, his or her brain forms an impression of you in just one-tenth of a second and within just sixty seconds, it’s processed thousands of visual, oral, and tactile cues as to who you are, what you’re like, and if they’d like to get to know you better. These cues instantly produce a gut feeling as to whether you’re a potential threat or asset.
