First Impressions

“Can I trust this person?”

“Is this person like me?”

“Can this person do anything for me?”

Those are the most common subconscious questions we ask ourselves when we meet new people. We tend to assess people this way without realizing we’re doing it.

Knowing that this is what other people are also going through when they first meet us is helpful. It can help us flip the questions around so we’re not too standoffish.
