it's fair or not, a person's
first judgment of other is based on clothing. The rest, including
intellectual appreciation comes only second. Clothing is the
first clue absorbed by the eye before the brain judges' first
impression. Clothing has become the most important judging factor
of first impression.
Image Is Showing
other people look at you, they make judgments about you based on what they see.
They may judge your ability and disposition by that first impression. Appearance
creates a picture of who you are. When other people lack personal information
about you, they may use your personal appearance to judge your character.
changing any part of your appearance such as hairstyle, grooming, or clothing,
you can change the total image others have of you. Appearance can be a powerful
and useful tool in controlling the kind of
message you send to others.
unrealistic to suppose
that everyone has the patience to wait for you to open your
mouth before making a judgment. What clothing creates on first
impression is surely as important as a thousand words for dozens
of later opportunities. What happens during that first moment
will most likely affect the rest of the impression. How many
times have you heard, "When I've first met him..."
or"The first time I've seen you, I thought...?" How
often do you find yourself baffled, bewildered or even hurt
because the response you elicit from others is different from
the one you had hoped for? Blame this on first impression.
you first enter a room,
an office, a bus or a business meeting, you only have one free
moment, one great instant in which you receive the complete
and undivided attention of those around you. In that instant,
the people observing to decide whether you are a threat or an
attraction, whether you are of interest to them or not. In most
cases, people make the vital decision about a stranger in less
time than what it takes to blink an eyelash. If you mess-up
to that moment, you will have to work awfully hard for the next.
you see a
beautiful woman wearing something really odd you'd say "she's beautiful but..."
and when you see a very handsome man wearing wrinkled trousers with dirty white
socks, you may find yourself saying he's your type but not excited to meet. Blame
this on first impression.
