12 Things That Ruin a First Impression Immediately

51567 ratings | 4247029 views
Scientists have proven that we form our first impression about someone within the first 7 seconds of meeting them, and 55% of the first impression is based on appearance. Pay attention to 12 common things you should avoid not to ruin the first impression. In his research, psychologist William F. Chaplin found that people with a weak handshake are instantly judged as being shy, anxious, uninterested, or even completely incompetent. If you place your hands on the table, don’t squeeze them too tight or lay them flat with your palms down. This makes people feel like you want to control them. Also, don’t forget about the role that culture plays here. A 2007 study showed that people who maintain eye contact during a conversation are often seen as more confident, attentive, intelligent, and trustworthy. Try not to focus the conversation only on yourself and your issues. It’s always a good idea to be attentive to your conversation partner. Tapping can indicate nervousness, irritation, or impatience. People might even think that you’re purposely trying to irritate others or draw attention to yourself. And while cracking your knuckles can help relieve stress, it’s one of the most annoying sounds according to a survey by The New York Times. A study from the University of Essex showed that even just having one’s phone on the table next to them reduces a conversation’s quality and the participants’ engagement. So leave it in your bag or in your pocket. Running late to a meeting with people you don’t know or have a formal relationship with will shed a guaranteed negative light on you. You’ll seem like an unreliable and unorganized person that doesn’t respect people enough to value their time.

They include health problems, money, religion, politics, or personal problems and complaints. -When it comes to meeting someone for the first time, keep a minimum of 4 feet between the two of you. -It can be nearly impossible to control nervous tapping, but you have to try, especially during important meetings or presentations. -Even if you’re just checking the time on your screen, it comes off as extremely impolite when you do it during a conversation. -Immediately repeate someone’s name after you’ve been introduced. In case you forget the name, just play it cool and try to avoid using phrases where you have to name the other person. -Leave your house in enough time so that you don’t have to run to your meeting. You’ll be all disheveled and unfocused, and that looks bad too. -If you’re meeting somebody for the very first time, again, especially in more formal situations, try to be conservative in your choice of clothing, be polished, and don’t use heavy perfume or tons of makeup.

You can avoid handshakes by references to the amount of flu going around and the solicitous "I am sure with your busy schedule, the last thing you'd want is to risk catching it from a stranger's handshake"

some people have eye problems l.e. a weak breeze or sunlight leads to falling of tears. in order to prevent it they have to avoid eye contact

According to me Forgetting someone's name might indicates that how you would love to him that you have not enough time to remember their name , It probably shows your strong relationship....

Sarath Ps (25 days ago)
eye contact is good. but do not overlook at someone's eye. it shows you are faking it. if there is 2 interviewers in the room... take turns to look at each of them when you speak / answer. one more thing- smile sometimes not all the time. good luck

Hello everyone 😊 I always use eye contact when I talk to someone. And I am always very honest. And maybe that's why I don't have too much friend's. Or am unlucky sometimes. The best thing for a good image for yourself is it. Don't trust nobody's. Better don't let people put you down. And ignore them when try to speak bad about you. I was every time very honest with someone. But this is not a great point. Today if you speak truth you lose friends jobs and more. Better be a liar and you will be more appreciate by other.😔 and I see it in some situations. When me i try find a job and I go to interview. But they don't accept me. Because I talk truth and I said what I am capably to do. They accept other guy who don't even work in that job position. Whatever life is very difficult. 😓 from Romania with respect. Have a great life all. And don't let people judge you by your looking or other things. Who they don't need to. Only God can judge us. 😊😍

Cooper Chris Life is* difficult. Not everyone likes to hear the truth, but I rather you didn’t let the world effect you in a negative way. Keep being true to yourself, trust that it’ll lead to true happiness and peace. Good luck~

i am giving a testimony of how i be come rich and famous today… i was deeply strangled up by poverty and i had no body to help me, and also i search for help from different corners but to no avail… i see people around me getting rich but to me i was so ashamed of my self so i met a man on my way he was very rich and he was a doctor so he told me something and i think over it though out the day so the next day i looked up and i keep repeating what he said to me. ” if you want to get rich quick and be famous” you need to cross your heart and do what is in your mind so i tried all i could in other for me to do as he said so later on i told my fellow friend about this same thing then my friend was interested in my suggestions so i decided to look in the internet and i found an email address of this great [email protected] so we decided to contact them and unfortunately we did as they instruct us to do and later they told us to get some requirements and all the rest… so this initiation took us just a week and later on the great brother hood  gave us $70,000,000.00 to start up our lives…. and now am testifying that if in any case you want to join any great illuminati brother hood  all you need to do is for you to contact them because they are legitimate and they do as what they instructed them to do okay so email them now at [email protected] you can also add on whatapp +2348089906968 and become a full murtibillonia   welcome to the freemansonary
