Some people believe that first impression last. While others believe that it's not true sometimes, because anyone can change the impressions they give. So do you live and apply the saying "First impression last" in your life?

Hi care! I do not enitrely go by the dictum that 'First impression is the last impression'. Sometimes, our calculation may go wrong. It would be better to frame a opinion about a person, only when we have met him/her for 3-4 times.

Yeah, you're right. It's human nature to judge immediately the person, especially on physical aspects. Which is not good. We often make mistakes on our judgment. They said that the best way to know the person is not on the way they talk but rather the way play the game. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

First Impression is the last impression is partially true with me. Although First impression makes lots of impact on one's way of perception a lot. i believe that if spend enough with that person, later you might come to know that all your first perception was wrong. But this saying is correct for parties and big function, where we normally say hi and hello only to each other. in this case, your first impression matters a lot.

Yeah, I agree with you. In some cases and situations "first impression last" is applicable, like what you'd mentioned. Others as well, when you're applying a job,during interview first impression does matter a lot,as you can't have other chance again to prove your worth. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Yes... I judge them with first meeting itself And in most cases it was correct. If they talk for 5 miniutes means i can judge thier life style.

according to my observation i think the impression i took from the person after 1st meeting is also the last impression, i can never judge people by only having 1st look of them for having som impression a sitting is required for me or at least just hello ic enough for having som impression for particular person

Generally we can study about the person from the first meeting itself. So we have some understanding about the person in our innerconsciousness. All further happenings will be controlled by this innerconsciousness. So in most of the cases the "first impression last"
