First impression is important. Sure! What about the second impression? People can’t show us all that they are entirely at one time. What if people fail to show the best side of themselves the first time, due to a variety of reasons, should we never change our first impression of them ever again, even if they do better the second, the third and subsequent times in future?
I understand that in many cases, we only have one opportunity to make a good first impression. The unfortunate paradox is though first impression is crucial; however, it isn’t always an accurate and complete portrayal of who we are, because we can all either under-represent ourselves or be overly pretentious. If people that we meet for the first time believe in what they see initially as all that we are, then they set themselves up for either surprises or disappointments.
