    How important are first impressions to you?

    I think I made a very bad first impression on someone who will determine my fate. How important are first impressions to you? If you made a very bad first impression on someone, how long and how much effort does it take to redeem yourself?



    A very bad first impression.

    First impressions are important, but generally I like to really get to know someone before I decide how I feel. Sometimes I really like a person at first, but then find out I can't stand them, and the other way around too.

    If I feel comfortable around you the first time I lay eyes on you, we may connect

    If I feel uncomfortable around you or have a negative vibe about yourself, piss off.

    First impressions mean little to me. I see a person's heart. If you mean well sugah, I more than likely like or respect you. You can be the most well put together person in the world, but I detect shadiness, I do not want anything to do with you.

    They're very important to me, but I always give the benefit of the doubt.

    They're incredibly important. I always leave room for a little compartment in the back of my mind for "I could have gotten off on the wrong foot/gotten the wrong impression, I don't know them." But first impression is still enormous and the single biggest factor as to whether or not I'll invest any interest in someone-- friendly or otherwise.

    Pretty much this.
    If they don't WOW me the first few minutes I meet them, they're never going to win me over.
    There are exceptions of course, but generally that's the way I roll

    I'll go with the shark here. I always try to leave room for doubt, but my instincts are usually right.

    Re: How important are first impressions to you?

    It doesn't really matter to me whether someone made a good or bad first impression. What matters to me is if the impression changes.

    However, I do have something called 'disliking someone on first sight', which is difficult. Once I look at someone and have this element of dislike, then there must be something not right about them (explicitly or implicitly) - and my intuition is almost always right all the time.

    It is important to a certain extent. Going off what buzzer said we could have either got off on a wrong foot or I could have met this person on a bad day. I have definitely been wrong about first impressions in the past, so I definitely give someone the benefit of the doubt.

    I'm neurotic and paranoid, so I generally know not to trust my brain when it comes to first impressions.

    Re: How important are first impressions to you?

    First impressions are very important, but as long as I don't have a horribly negative vibe about you (like you're a serial killer or something), I'll get to know you....and things from there can certainly change. I'd like to get to know someone better: their passions, interests, view on life, etc.

    First impressions can kill it for me, so they're important. But sometimes they're misleading, so I try to sniff out more from second or 6th impressions.

    Re: How important are first impressions to you?

    I always ignore first impressions and usually I regret lol. Honestly, time after time I've been proved right about my first impressions, but I can't make any decision based on that, I always give a second chance, usually is not worth it but at least I don't keep thinking if I was wrong or not, I just think "I knew it" and move on lol. I wouldn't put much weight in the fact that you didn't cause a good impression, people always read more than we think, and I don't believe someone would made a serious decision based on a first impression...

    Very, for all the above reasons.
    If you have blown it and it is important to you,it is just a long steady ,low profile road back.

    Re: How important are first impressions to you?

    I'm very careful about my first impression on someone, because I don't know how important it might be to them.

    I'm far more casual about their first impression on me. I'm easy-going enough that I can get over a bad first impression, even though I might be wary of them for a bit if I did get a bit of a vibe on the first go. But I don't tend to carve anything in stone right off the bat, so my respect/friendship/whatever can be earned with a bit of work.

    The person who came up with the saying...
    You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
    ...is an idiot. It's not true at all. It happened too many times that my first impression was wrong. Especially in my youth with classmates and the first work experience. People who I thought were alright turned out to be assholes and people I never spoke to first became good friends.

    They are important but what follows can be just as important and can negate a first impression. In a recent dating experience doubly so though the first impression wasn't great either so I should have paid more attention. But desperate is desperate does....

    You said this someone holds your fate. If it's a job situation, you're screwed. Otherwise, you can probably fix a bad first impression in time.

    That's sort of the case for me, as in, I will always, without exception trust my first NEGATIVE impression. However, I will always give it time if the impression is positive or neutral, because while it can often take a second to know you can't mash with someone, usually it's not that clear.

    A quick smile and a kind word can almost always guarantee a good first impression. I try not to concern myself with my first impression of others, but their first impression of me. I try to always have a happy face, even when I'm a tad cranky!

    Re: How important are first impressions to you?

    AS much as they first impressions are the most important, I accept reality. People can be nervous meeting people for the first time, whether to make friends, love, or a job, or whatever. For me I like to give a person a chance to prove themselves. That may take 2-3 times to get comfortable, then so be it.

    If I took first impressions at face value then I would think a lot of people are nothing more that ignorant dumb-asses, and not get to know them better and find out that they are actually decent cool people.

    BUT if that first impression makes me feel creeped out of uncomfortable, then I'm going to go with my gut and want to avoid that person. I won't be rude or nasty to them.
    I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it.

    A smile can definitely drastically change a first impression. I remember once smiling more than usual while ordering food at a fast food place, and the cashier automatically smiled back a (huge) smile that she couldn't wipe off her face. I wasn't even aware that I was smiling that much until I saw her reaction!

    Very important. But not important to the extent that I'll dismiss the person after the first meeting. It is all about getting to know the person better before gauging if he is bad for you (friendship or romantically).
