Do you try to give a good impression on a stranger?
What do you think about the saying-“The first impression is the best impression.”?
No, I don't "try" to make a good impression, I'm always myself, regardless of the circumstances. If they for whatever reason do not like me the way I am, then they do not need to talk to me or be around me. I'm not going to do something out of character or not in my personality just to make a good impression, on a stranger or any one else for that matter.
It all depends on who this stranger is. If he will meet me once again then I will definitely try to give a good impression to him or her.
I suppose I do, but not intentionally, I am myself but hold back on anything that could offend, until I got to know them better, so I suppose they get a neutral me. In other words I am still myself, but maybe a bit more guarded so not to offend them with a misunderstanding.
As for the saying first impression is the best impression, I am not too sure, I have had a few first impressions where I took an instant dislike to someone, only to realise, I was wrong, and the other way round too. But I still think first impressions count for something.
I think its important to give a good first impression. I read on the cnn.org website sometime like a month ago that people remember the first time they meet somebody for much longer than anything else. Those few seconds of impression are the most important.
Yes and No. Depending on who I am, or not, trying to impress. If it is the CEO, of a big company, or a hiring manager on a job interview. Then by all means Yes! I would definitely want to impress this individual. But as far as a clown goes for example. Why would I want to impress that particular individual. He has already impressed everyone at the circus already, with his comic antics for example. So as you can see, it really boils down to who you want to impress, and for what reasons.

We have visited this topic at least twice before in recent months and I continue not to understand it. No matter what I do or how many views I get somehow I always earn between $1.25 and $2.25 a day which averages out to just barely enough to make payout each month. This was the case...

Please forgive my ignorance, folks, but I'm really not sure that I understand how Adsense works. I can see that clicks on Ads give you cash, but why is there also a running total for "impressions"?Firstly, what is an "impression"? Is it the posting of an Ad on your page? Or has...

I have noticed that whenever I have a day when I have lots of impressions, the CPM is very low. On days I have a few impressions, the CPM is $22. Why is that?
