When you first meet someone, what do you notice first? Their shoes-their clothing-their hair? What is the best accessory someone can have-that they should never leave home without? When I first notice an individual- I notice their posture... It says a lot about a person. Someone that stands up strait-looks forward not down-says confident. A person who slouches and hangs their head low-says, uncomfortable, and perhaps give a vibe that they are unapproachable and unfriendly. I am not suggesting that this is true all of the time-just that it is the first impression. I believe that a person that always carries a smile-carries their most precious accessory. Smiles as well as a frown are contagious.
So how about you-what do you first notice on a person? What is the best accessory?
First the face, then I key in on their eyes, then teeth & mouth, then hair, then nails. Body and clothing are last.
As the song goes "first I look at the purse"!
All kidding aside I notice different things depending on the point of view when I take notice. Far away, left, right, behind, relative to where I am standing, their position, sitting, standing, or perhaps walking all affect what I notice first.
I like people with a ready smile.And oh yes I observe their hands.
When I first notice someone, besides taking in their physical appearance, which is inescapable, I first notice the way they speak. I will admit that I am slightly biased towards their accent, but their manner of speaking and usage of vocabulary are what I tend to judge.
Improper grammar and the like really turn me off when I'm first meeting a new person; it makes me think they're unintelligent.
The first thing I notice is their face, their expressions, just their overall expressions.
Every person notices something or the other. So Yeah, I also notice a lot of things since I have a very keen eye towards someone’s personality. So when I meet a new person, a guy or a girl, the first thing that catches my attention is their figure and height. A tall, fit and good looking person always attracts my attention first in a crowd. But then my observation doesn’t stop here as this is only the appearance I was referring to. There are hell lot of things which I observe when I meet someone for the first time. Firstly their clothes and then their shoes and most importantly their stubble and their hair style. I have been a school counselor so the feelings of discipline are embedded deep inside of me. I like people who are fit, good looking and have clean and neat hair style and are smartly dressed. Apart from this, their eyes and their way of talking is also very important. Just after a 5 minute conversation I can decided if this is the person who is worth the time or not. In these 5 minutes I find out the intellectual level of a person so practically intellectual level is all that matters. I don’t really want to body sham someone but that’s just the way I see things. So yeah some of you might feel that I kind of indulge in scanning process. And I would also not disagree on that. For me it is a mix and match of everything that counts to make an impression of someone.
It depends on the person and his nature. Some people only check dressing sense, communication. You can read this to know the essentials every women need in her closet http://meganlarussa.com/the-5-basics-ev … er-closet/
Thats a great question.
Okay, maybe teeth, but its only because I wore braces for years, and always had a problem with smiling in public. And since I got them off, a minute wouldnt pass, without me smiling like a little child. So yeah, I would say teeth.
And also shoes, but thats only because I love shoes..
lololol,the expression in their eyes, I like green eyes...intoxicated eyes
the whole package, what does the person project~~
I have felt particularly drawn to people for no obvious reason, we all give off our own energy.
How they carry themselves and whether they are male or female -- unless I hear them first, then it is whether or not their voice sounds relaxed and confident.
for me it's the eyes and their smile...they both tell me a lot about a person.
So the things that most people notice are eyes and mouth/teeth... What are you looking for when you look into someones eyes? Or when you get a glimpse of their smile?
What if they have no teeth?
For me, I suspect (although I'd not care to stake my life on it) that what I notice first depends one heckuva lot on circumstances. A few examples:
--People headed my way on the sidewalk as I'm strolling through gang territory. Here I'm looking first for numbers, body language, weapons, and how they're positioned strategically.
--Pretty girl going away from me, then I'm checking out the hip action. It's how I got married 7 times. Pretty tail, who cares about the rest, don't date her, just marry her.
--If eye contact is possible and appropriate, then yes, that for sure. Today in Wal-Mart, a tall girl and I passed each other (going opposite directions) and there was a flash in her eyes that said she knew I'd been admiring the view. Had, too: Nice form, well clad, great confident stride, hot boots.
--If in the men's john, then I notice whether the other guy is paying attention to his business and not mine.
LOL!!!ha!ha!ha! I couldn't stop laughing just by reading Ghost32's replies...he just rocks...HIPS!!! man, your wives must have gotten crazy having you...anyways, for me when I look at someone's eyes when they smile it shows their soul whether they smile genuine or just a FAKE!
this explains alot for me...
Ive never been on a date, engaged 3 times and married for 10 years....
I notice the eyes because I like to see the shape (almond shaped, etc.)you can see if someone is sincere or confident if they are looking at you or "through" you. I look at the mouth because I like nice full lips, and clean, straight teeth.
can't say what exactly, but i tend to pick up on sadness..... also when someone is energetic, i try to be around that person, and see if it will rub off on me
definitely the eyes initially. Arms/hands/body language secondly.
sounds silly I know, but first their calves (well toned legs are impressive) and then their eyes, the expression, your can read what type of person they are in their eyes.
First things I notice...for gilrs, is she looking at me like I might need to fight? The nasty glare, head to toe and back up, toss the head and smirk? Or does she smile and look friendly?
For guys, height, shoulders and hands. For both, how are they dressed? just stuff I notice...once I actaully start to talk to a person, I look at the eyes.
I think for me it depends on the person. Most people have something that stands out - beautiful eyes, beautiful hair, ugly eyes, ugly hair, etc. I guess I probably notice whatever stands out the most first. Strangely, I don't put a lot to weight to smiles. It's too easy for a lot of people to slap on a phony smile for "social purposes".
I agree completely... People can change depending on social occasions and surroundings... phony smile- sad eyes as well as more dramatic changes like changing hair color- getting a nose job or lypo- we have the ability to change just about every physical characteristic that God and nature gave to us.. So physical characteristics-I make an attempt; not pay attention to-I more so focus on the way the person carrys themselves.
1)Height, I like tall men.
3)Mouth and teeth. I like a kissable mouth with "meety" lips and could never kiss someone with ugly teeth!
4)Hands. I used to go for the "well manicured look" now I am starting to prefer big and strong ones instead.
hmm... probably something about how they carry themselves. That's the best I can do to explain my strange way of noticing people. It's sort of their entire manner and presentation and how it comes across... definitely not any one physical feature, unless it's something really unusual.
The most amazing thing is that I can rarely tell you anything specific about a person I've seen or met but can describe their personality with specifics. In the 60's and 90's someone would have called it their "aura" but whatever it is, the personality is the first thing I notice. I didn't even know my honey's eye color until 6 months into the relationship. I know..."weird".
Sometimes it is not what you see first that catches the attention, but what you hear:
A teasing tone...
Too much perfume...
Although I've met a few people who smell too much like perfume or beer, I can't say I've met anyone who smells like campfire smoke, horse, or cat "poop". That certainly would be enough to create a bad impression. Either you meet a real lot of people, or else you're hanging out in the wrong circles.
That distinctive but intangible quality surrounding a person that I call their aura...
I notice their eyes and how they react to the energy I give off; irrespective of male, female, animal or alien.
What you give, you get
Weather there armed and what kind of weapon there carrying.My EX had a razor sharp wit,she cut me at every opportunity lol...or I'll cry...
The jawline, on a male I love square jaws. They just fascinate me.
The first thing I notice about a person is their eyes, I was told the eyes are the windows of the soul. I think the eyes tell you a lot about a person. creativeone59
I notice the way he/she talks and of course body language.Sometimes I pay attention to dress sense or the color of the clothes..
How they are responding to me - even if they haven't spoken yet.
The way they stand. It's proof of their confidence or lack thereof.
It would depend on the circumstances for meeting.
After that, I would be paying attention to every detail, body language, words, the way they talk, eye contact and be looking for honesty.
Honesty is the only thing the body can not hide. If your intent is dishonest, your body will give it away.
It's not weird! I had a woman once tell me she loved my hands and all she had done is seen them.
Other women have stared at my hands and you could just see their minds start to imagine if it is true what they say about big hands and big feet. In fact they asked me straight out. I told them that there is only one way for them to find out!
overall attractivness, until I get closer, then it's their eyes.
The eyes say it all for me, then I check out the rest.

What do YOU think about a person who puts his/her family of origin before his/her spouse & children?Would you DIVORCE such a person feeling that this person is disloyal to you & your children? What makes a person put his/her family of origin i.e. parents & siblings before...

If you were told something about a person, would it change your opinion of them?If a person tells you something about someone you occasionally talk to, and it puts them in a very bad light, would this change your opinion of them. Or should you just ignore it.
