Let us analyze this very popular statement. My interpretation is that what you see and think about a person during initial contact lasts. But for how long ?.How accurate is that statement ?Have you ever made an assessment of someone on initial contact that turned out to be wrong? , maybe you got to know them better ,what then ?,do you still think about them the way you used to when you first met them or do you totally forget about your first impressions. Do you thoroughly stick to your first impressions and get turned off by the person forever or do you get to know them first ? How do you view first impression ? do you believe in first impressions and have you ever made an incorrect first impression ?

I usually do not believe in first impressions, because sometimes people think I am a mean at first even though I am a loving person. They think this because I am quiet and may not talk a lot, this may make them think that I am being mean, but when they get to know me better, they see that I am actually a good person.

You are exactly like me ,I am very quiet too and many persons interpret this to mean that I am mean and selfish,which is the exact opposite of who I am.Many persons who have gotten to know me have said as much
