How first impression works

Some people still in the 21st century doesn’t believe that first impression works too much or they have to give it so much importance. I think there are several strong reasons to give first impression a place in your relations and interactions with others, when you meet new one you need first impression

When you met someone first time and give your good look, express what you are and what you want automatically you want to polish all these things along with polish shoes to make you look good , you focus on how good you are in your talks, works and purpose. First impression is not a thing which can be gained by just reading and applying, it’s actually an art and everyone creates its own art, own impression.

If the observer finds a quality in you, in your work, in your look, in your talks, in your personality then the chances are greater that he/she accepts as you want and agree with you. You will have also advantages of presenting in nice and established way.

I think you have also judged in your daily life that the person or the object which creates great look for you in first sight is more attractive then those to whom you first see in raw form, might they boost later but left a crack in your mind, actually its human nature to be impressed first from the attractive ones.
