The Brain and First Impressions
First impressions happen in less than a second. Permanent judgments about likability, trustworthiness and aggressiveness are made within that second. When faced with communication incongruences, we discredit words and believe the nonverbal (image and body language).
“My jacket feels great!...It’s all about fit.
The fit makes one look better. Equally important, it makes one feel better. And when one feels better, one presents better.”
