People first impressions to me are snob, quit type of person, unfriendly. Which is the opposite of it. I am not snob, I am just shy at first and observes people to know how and when the right time to approach them. I am not a quit type of person because I do love to talk! I may be quiet at first meeting, but you wait because I never stop to talk. I am a bubbly person. Unfriendly, I am not! I can be anyone's friends. What about you? What are the first impressions that people to you? You think they're right about it? If they're wrong, how do you show them that they are?

people's first impression about me is I am very serious in studies and a bookworm. they also think I am not at all friendly. its true i had always been serious about what I did in life. but its true i am little intrivert but can be good friends who are really nice to me.

first impression... i am a quiet person, a little bit intimidating 'coz unfortunately, i usually looked like a snob. i think i am a shy person but a friendly one. i am just moody that sometimes i get so quiet that others would interpret it as being a snob. i normally don't do anything to change their impressions with me, i just express myself the way i can.

well i am quite a tlakative guy and friendly by nature. usually i do talk with guys frankly and dont shy to share information or knowledge... but i dont like to talk with particular kind of persons, few guys i dont like at first sight, i never try to get free with them. a little bit hesitation is there when starting a talk with girls.

First impression is not always the best impression.. I like to talk with everyone which makes me believe people just like that.. being silent is not my case.But I have learnt to talk as well as judge people.. To an extent. this is something good for me.. I will not be facing unnecessary broken feeling when those people hurt me,.

they said that i am a snob and a very strict person. i really do not smile to those i am not comfortable with, but when you get to know me, you will find out that i can make you laugh, i could tell jokes all of the sudden. i am not choosy so i can go anywhere and have fun anytime.

People see me as a snobber, maybe I am sometimes and sometimes not. I'm a shy type of person I don't talk to people that I didn't know yet except if we know each other I will talk to them but if I don't know you I will never talk to you unless they approach me and introduce themself. I sometimes not to smile because sometimes I did it before but they gave it a meaning I dunno but they say I'm hard to approach.

hi jstmarfz hi again they think ii am a bit uppity until they realize I am just shy, but I c an be really talkitive and also I have a sense of humor too. I need to know you for a while before I open up to you but I can be very outgoing and even mothering if I try a bit. I am reserved and will not gossip about anyone as I dont want to be gossipped about either. I am a person who practices live and let live, and also judge not lest you be judged.

People like to think I'm a snob too but I'm not sure why. I don't think I give off that impression or anything. I think I'm pretty friendly. However, I'm not always talkative either so I think people sometimes assume that just because I'm not in the mood to talk to someone that I'm rude and not friendly. I think people just jump to conclusions that much and if people assume something after meeting me once then I guess they're not worth talking to anymore.

my thing is you can tell the ones who's shy and rude. most of the time if the person is shy i still say hi to them, ask how they are. when you feel comfortable to talk more to me, i leave it up to them. i notice more people are rude. i love talking to people, and if they are more different then me i find that way cool, specaily if we can talk about thier belife or whatever. you keep being you.. it all good

People think I'm a snob and very strict. I'm not either just because I wear eyeglasses? I am shy, maybe a little because we all have some reservations. I talkative really if given the chance to talk :) To let people know that I'm not what they think I am, I always have a ready smile even if I don't get a smile back.

Same here, that was also the usual first impressions to me, they think that I am snob, quiet, and serious, which is totally opposite of me. I am just shy and not quite talk at first, I usually observes them and shyly smile at them. Not quite know how to approach them and also I don't want think that I am too friendly with them. Like you, I am friendly and cheerful, totally opposite on what they think that I am serious and quiet. Over the hours or days that we're together, they eventually, realized that I am totally different of what they think of me at first.

I'm not sure what the first impression of people that just met me! All I know that I'm shy person but I always give smile to every person that I met. But once they become to know me deeper I'm a talkative person. lol. Have a nice day.

hi jstmarfz. are you an aquarian? just asking. anyway, usually the first impression is snobbish, "mataray", not so approachable and a serious type of person. but actually I'm not. I'm just quiet at first, just like you, because I try to get to know the person if i can trust him/her. then as we get to know each other, my true me will emerge, funny, "makulit" and really friendly person.

I remember my teacher in Management One when i was in college said "FIRST IMPRESSION LAST," I think it really depends just like me their first impression is that im strict, very snobbish and unfriendly. But their impressions on me are wrong because i can be anyones friend. Although yes at first i am just quite in the corner observing people around but not that i am unfriendly haha..So meaning not all first impressions last because some of it are wrong impressions.
