Have an opinion?
To am extent. Like if I meet someone and within 5 minutes of us knowing each other, they call my cat ugly, say my cookies taste disgusting, and then burn my house down, yeah that kind of first impression will affect how I see them forever.But for the most part, it really isn't a big deal unless they do something drastic.
I could forgive them for the house but not the first 2
Agreed, calling my cat ugly is the real deal breaker tbh
Your cats are beautiful
Thank you, they're my pride and joy
Gracias for mho
Watch out, he's got a match!
Yes, the do
Is that your kitty?
That's the cutest thing I've ever seen
She's a little derpy eyed. She follows me everywhere
Awee, man. I want a furry companion.
Meow. I have two!
I have the same looking cat, he is among many outdoor stray cats that want to hang out when i go home.. But he shows up all the time.. 👍
Awesome, @TITAN-IDC. She's feisty.Thanks for the MHO
Gag doesn't let me post photos but id show you mine.. He likes to growl to get his way. He plays growl games..
You can use imgur. Sometimes I'll upload there just to share a picture of whatever I need to share. Haha growl games!
No I don't think so
Only at first. if you make a bad first impression but a good second impression, people will then tend to overestimate how much of an improvement you made, and they also tend to overestimate your potential to improve further. So just because you made a bad first impression, don't give up. You're actually in a better position if you can pull it off next time.You might think making good impressions consistently would be better, but not necessarily! People often have a tendency to root for an underdog more than a proven champion. It totally changes the dynamic when someone is judging you, if they have a personal reason to like you, beyond just your usefulness to them, a whole different part of their brain is engaged. Sometimes when you make nothing but good impressions, it can build a jealousy or resentment. You can say this would only happen in an insecure person, but almost everybody has insecurities or can be insecure at times, and sometimes you might need to impress people who happen to be extremely insecure, or if they simply have reason to see you as a potential rival. A rational insecurity. It is really better to be loved than feared. The more perfect you are, the easier it is to fear you and the harder it is to love you. Sometimes it's better to underperform or sandbag, when making a first impression. The one time this isn't true, obviously, is when you won't get a second chance unless you nail it the first time.
They're essential as I see it because it takes a very rare kind of person to assess negative qualities about you on the first impression and still be interested in giving you the benefit of the doubt.As a blatant example, let's say you see a person walking around talking to himself/herself and shouting random things sporadically while talking to no one in particular. What's the probability that you would be interested in introducing yourself to this person and giving them the benefit of the doubt that they might make a perfectly great friend (or date)?
Meanwhile, let's say you see another person and they're smiling and talking to several people around them and look very friendly while this other person is walking around talking to himself/herself and shouting random things. It's like which one do you approach? The latter person might actually have a better personality and make a better friend, but how many people would approach that one as opposed to the former one if given a choice?
I like to think I'm not a very judgmental type prone to jump to conclusions, but even I would pick the former person if given a choice. If I'm allowed to talk to both, maybe I'll try to talk to both if I'm in a patient and a very open-minded mood. But definitely, if I have to pick one, I'm not prioritizing the latter type who appears like he/she might be crazy or completely stoned when I can talk to the one that looks so friendly and approachable instead.
First impressions actually matter *too much*, psychologically speaking. We humans have a really hard time judging others (or things) by the most recent and most accurate information we get and instead will often subconsciously stick with our judgement that's based on the first impression we got, no matter how inaccurate or unrepresentative it might have been.It's a phenomenon that's being taken advantage of - or rather, being abused - by the advertisement industry, by PR companies, by polticians, and so on.
According to a message written in my freshman high school yearbook, and I quote, "when I first met you, I thought you were a stuck up bitch, but then I got to know you and I'm so glad I did because you are a cool person and a great friend." I was so shocked to hear this. I tend to make a bad first impression on people because I'm a total introvert. I need a moment to take it all in, and access the scene before I'm like, hey please like me and be my friend. Cut to 100 years later, that person and many more and I are still friends decades later. I think if people see something in you that makes them want to try to get to know you or give you another chance they do, or if someone's like, he or she is just having an off day, I think people don't care so much about first impressions unless you really do or say something that's offensive or exhibit harmful behaviors.
Yes especially in a job or job interview. Dress appropriately for the job but also have a good handshake I will not work or hire someone who has a loose , limp or fishy handshake a handshake is the first and last impression and says a lot. To many people it says if someone is a good worker or trustworthy and for older people it's legal binding just as important as a contract it can make or break a dealFor dating first impression days a lot too will this person date you again meeting your dates friends , family or parents etc. There's many things and situations in life where a first impression is important and you have to decide how to make it good
I find that they change after the first meeting.. For example, I appear confident at first when people first meet me, then as they get to know me they start to see how fatigued I get! Or sometimes I meet someone who's arrogant but actually after a few meetings they show that they have a kind heart.
They do matter quite a bit. If it’s a first impression of someone that I probably won’t see again or don’t see very often, it’s pretty hard to get my mind to see them as any different than they were when I first met them which is bad if it wasn’t a good first impression. If it’s someone I’ll get to interact with often, then the first impression matters less because I have more situations to truly assess what they’re like usually.
To a certain extent. I met this guy and talking to him for a couple weeks, then I saw him be a complete asshole to someone and it totally turned me off. I stopped talking to him after that. It’s not exactly first impressions but it was the first couple weeks of knowing him.
We evolved specifically to read facial expressions snd body language to correctly adopt a response to whoever or whatever was in front of us. It gives us a sense of understanding the person and their likely relationship to us.That being said, these immediate responses in your brain need to be updated as more information presents itself.
Yes, they're important. Our brains are fast. They form opinions and biases before you even speak to someone. That means you have built an expectation, you have mental barriers, and you have personal feelings before you have said hello. Your brain then works those feelings into your conscious mind, causing you to feel a certain way about people.
We've all adapted our ways of giving false appearances to maintain a healthy barrier between people we dont honestly know.. We all act an react different depending on circumstances so as far as not totally destroying oneself off the rip if you want to see them again be good to at least discover some mutual ground , similarities, an leave them courius
i find most girls say "no" and that they "get to know the perdon after" ... however i've not seen that in practice, with myself, guy friends, and chatting to other girls.the issue seems to be if the girl mostly does not "get to know" a guy unless she finds him physically attractive in the beginning.im not trying to piss anyone off here.. this is just what i found out from my own experiences.I also know that people in general wouldn't admit to this sort of thing.
Yes I love that cat and I’ve only had one impression 🥰🥰
That cat loves you
Yes, they do. However, if you mess up a first impression, it doesn't necessarily mean you're completely doomed. Sometimes, people's impression of you changes after they get to know you. I've met several people that I thought were kind of rude or stuck up at first, but once I got to know them, ended up really liking them once.
It's all about the situation and where. It depends on what type of job if it's an interview. If you come in and look like you can start a metal band then maybe the office job is not for you, if it's an bar then your hired. If it's a service job then being cool is out the window now you need to be open and welcoming. But being your self is always important when it comes to making friends, being cool most times makes you look like an asshole.
I don't know the answer to your question but I know your cat is so adorable
I'm the cat
Your cat does look like a human when stand 😂 your cat is cute 😻
You are welcome
Yeah, even if you consciously don't want to your sub-conscious will definitely profile the person you're meeting rather quickly, and it will take time to adjust your view of the person to better understand them.
Of course. Unlike what you see in the movies, most people are not given the luxury of a second impression
You can never make the first impression again. You can sway someone to change their oppinion of you, but that takes a long concerted effort, so you are better off statistacally to put your best foot forward as it were.
They matter a lot. Subconsciously, our minds 'compute' the first impression and come to a (first) conclusion. However - the picture only rounds up after we see more of a personality.
It does. However, I learned that it doesn't matter if it's the first impression or last impression. People will always judge you and wait for you to slip up and judge you, even after you make a good first impression. Every impression counts.
Yes of course, but it doesn't mean you can't fix it. But that does require the other person to be open to a new opinion of you.
Only if you work in the corporate world or if you date by social media. First impressions are more about what you look like than anything else.
Hmmm yes and no... sometimes someone may seem genuine when they really aren’t, and sometimes u may have a bad impression the first time but then as you get to know the person your opinio. Of them changes
Not really because after you get to know someone things can change
I wouldn't say you're wrong here. I actually agree. But the first impression is what allows you the interest to get to know someone. Our brains form biases quickly and they end up coming through as time goes on.
Of courseIts important in interviews, first dates, meeting your partner's family for the first time, etc
They’re actually the only thing that matters. Most research shows humans draw their opinions more from first impressions.
Cat thought bubble- if I jump from this window, can I catch that bird and still stick the landing?
When you have only a short time to convince, yes of course
Yeah, Im gay but its proven that women determine if they will sleep with you or not within the first 5 seconds of meeting you.
Indeed they do. Especially in interviews or dates. My dad taught me to present myself to new people like they're about to offer me a job.
yes, more so for jobs/careers/businessDating I feel like it could be 50/50Meeting people in general is say 75/25
People judge others the moment they see them. First thing people notice is your clothes, so that's the first thing they hold on to. Now let's hear them talk and etc. From there
Type in YouTube. "Asking for hel business suit vs homeless"
Yeah absolutely it’s the most important thing in any relationship
Win, lose or draw- whether you like it or not- yes, they do.
Yes. Women already decided winner or loser based on their 1st impression.
First impressions are very important. It is what a person thinks about the kind of person you are, and will remain in their minds.
Not much to me, I'm always ready to leave people a second chance. In society in general though, I think they matter.
For some people they do I know during job interviews first impressions do matter
At the end reality comes out... You can't hide yourself forever behind a mask!
First, latest, intense, negative. Any memory with those mental tags weigh more in remembrance
And the picture with wrong or success is really bad done...
Nope... its what comes gradually when u know someone that matters
you dont get a second chance to make a first impressionsometimes they mattersometimes they dont
A first impression is important, because if first impression is satisfactory, people can proceed to further steps with confidence !
Not that much unless you manage to really come off as a douche and piss someone off
In the dating world I think most women only give one chance.
That cat looks lonely.
The cat is looking for friends
It needs to go outside if it wants to make friends.
He's scared of the outside world
He should be unscared.
I'll help him become unscared
That's nice of you.
They matter but are not concrete. They can be overcome or undermined.
They tend to be a starting point for your first mistake.
No, because I often "judge a book by its cover". And later find out it's a good person.
Only first bad impressions leave lasting effects.
No not for me. but unfortunately it always does.
they do for people who only give one chances
Yes it does for sure.
Depends on the situation in my book.
Because you only get one crack at it.
