It takes someone 33-100 milliseconds to form an opinion and impression of who you are. Sadly, in those few micro-moments, regardless of reality-most people will decide who you are and then use that judgment as a filter for relating to you.
If their opinion is not good-that sadly is not likely to change. With that being said, if you have a feeling that people are getting the wrong impression of you-it may be time to take action for making better impressions moving forward. While that might sound like quite the task, it isn’t as difficult as it may seem. If your goal is to make a great first impression, here are some expert tips on how to accomplish that.
1. Presentation is everything.
You do not have to be a supermodel to make a good impression, but it is a good idea to practice good hygiene and to dress based on the occasion. For example, if you show up in sweatpants and a tee-shirt filled with holes to a job interview, it’s not likely you are going to leave the right impression. If you have any doubt about how to present yourself, do some research on the event you are attending.
