According to Psychology: a first impression is the event when one person first encounters another person and form a mental image of that person. It can SOMETIMES form an accurate representation of the person, DEPENDING on the Observer and The Person being observed.
But according to me: a first impression is the event in which a person first encounters a stranger and from the first encounter, purposely decides to draw a conclusion or design an assumption on the person’s personality surely due to lack of patience to relate cordially with the person long enough to truly know them.
So, first impressions are unfair and unreliable due to the simple method used to define such a complex nature as the human nature.
First impressions aren’t all they are cracked up to be-
Everyone and everything seems normal or abnormal from a distance, or at a glance, depending on the conditions they are currently in. The 10th, 20th, or even the 50th impression is when you start to truly understand someone else for who they truly are.
Dear friends, don’t hold so strong to perceived impressions about people…things change and people change too, so learn to accept people as they change to avoid surprises and disappointments.
