Impression Part I


According to a research that i read on news paper, a person have only 7 seconds to impress another person on the first meeting. Which means in 7 seconds people will already form an impression on what kind of person you are.

This is particularly interesting as the society today is in such a way that people do not spend much time to know about others. Another thing is also that people always masked their true feelings/identity most of the time.

So what kind of impression can we form in 7 seconds? That you are a friendly person or a cocky nose in the sky person? Or you are a cold person with a stern look that make everyone shiver when you walk passed or the one that always warm and welcoming? 

In my job i have to meet some of my candidates as well as my clients, and most of the time i try my best to look as professional as i can. Which mean i normally give a big warm smiles and some small chat at the beginning of the meeting but then i will slide into the serious and quiet mode in the middle part.

Most of the time i will let my boss do the talking and just add in one or two sentences when needed. This is not because i am a cold person or a cocky one. If you know me well…. then you would know this is not how i normally act when i am around people.

This is because i am fairly new in this industry and in my previous job i have not really into sales role before. My biggest worries is to open my mouth and said something really stupid that make me & my boss looks like  some biggest moron on earth hahhahaha .

It never occur to me how people look at me when i am in working mode. I guess i try to portrait myself as a person who is serious and can do the job. As long as my clients and candidates thinks that way , then i am fine with it.

But come back to daily life when i am not working. I always think of myself as a friendly, chatty ( overly chatty at times) and warm kind of person. Most of the time i have no problem making new friends and i can blend in a crowd of people easily. So i have never really give it a thought what so people think of me when we first meet.
