Before a single word is exchanged, most first impressions are already informed. What is their opinion based on; how you look, of course, obviously, right? Your appearance gives people clues about your personality, and it doesn’t matter who you are. Whether if it’s your tattoos, shoes, jewelry, even the way you do your hair can also tell another person a little bit about you. When I first met my best friend, Emma a few years ago, I had a bad first impression of her. She wore baggy pants, dragging down below her hips. Her hair was very frizzy, like she had never combed or brushed it like forever.
She didn’t have any makeup on till just a couple of months ago. She always had spiked up jewelry around her neck and wrists. My first impression of her was that she was in some kind of a gang and most likely carried a concealed weapon; that she had obviously shot someone in her lifetime. Of course, by the time I got to know her better, she was none of those things I had perceived her to be. Not all assumptions are true when it comes to really observing a person by what they wear. For most part, people are usually drawn together based on common interests.
Strange as it may seem, you will usually find that certain groups of friends tend to dress alike. I can totally agree on this because the group of friends I hang out with lately, I have noticed that we do share the same style of clothing, shoes, handbags and taste in music. Though sometimes, even opposite attracts when it comes to groups. My sister, who is a very sociable person, has friends who are totally opposites of her personality. Her friend, Stacey, is very quiet, shy, and non-sociable person. Her clothes are very out-dated. She wears clothes that are dated back to the 70’s.
Education in the Classroom, or in the Real World Oscar Wilde and Lord Brougham have different ideas about the education system. Wilde states Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught. This means that education does not teach a person every thing they need to know, a person learns from doing things outside of ...
The first time my sister introduced me to her, I thought she was much older than my sister. She looked like a librarian, wearing turtle necks with knitted bright green sweaters all the time. Later in the months, I found out that she’s not much into the latest fashion and that she just like to dress comfortable. I asked some of my male friends about when they see a woman dressed in a skimpy, seductive short dress with a six inch pumps on and walking down the streets; what would their first impression of that woman be. They all gave me the same answer. It was that of a street hooker.
To sum things up on this, I guess if a woman plans on wearing a short mini skimpy dress and a six inch heels then she shouldn’t be too surprised when men treat her with less respect and dignity than a woman who’s dressed more modestly. You can actually make a statement by what you wear, especially if you break social standards by dressing differently than what is usually expected for a certain occasion. If a person was to put on a pair of torn faded jeans and some bright T-shirt, color his hair purple and red, and showed up for a corporate job interview.
Something tells me that he would not get the job, but seeing the look on the interviewer’s face would have been a memorable experience (if he got passed security, looking like that).
A person’s wardrobe is perhaps the best way to find out about their personality. I can quickly tell if a person is shy, quiet or loud and attention seeking just by looking at what they’re wearing. Generally speaking, a person who wants to blend into the crowd will not be wearing a flashy, hot, and super-short dress.
Furthermore, a loud and outgoing person will generally not wear a simple plain shirt and pant set. Before you choose your outfit for the day, think about how you want others to see you and interpret your personality. For most part, we want our clothes to portray us in the most positive way possible. Our clothes say far more than we think. For example, a woman wearing an expensive gown, dripping in diamonds and jewels; just by observing the accessories that she is wearing say about her status? We would already assume she comes from wealth.
School uniform is an integral part of school life, whether we like them or not. Reasons for and against school uniform can be explored under the areas of social, academic, and economic/financial reasons. Firstly, in a social point of view, there is much controversy on whether or not school uniforms should be mandatory at school. One of the arguments is that school uniform unites the school as a ...
Perhaps, the most important time to ensure your clothing is putting you in the best light is during a first meeting. wearing clothing that bests shows your interests, personality, and individuality instead of wearing clothing that may promote unnecessary misconceptions. First impression is everything! While it may be true or not what you wear doesn’t define you as a person, what you wear is a reflection of who you are to others around you. I definitely agree on this because one day, I felt really gloomy due the weather.
My girlfriends invited me to have lunch with them and little did I know; they were setting me up for a blind date. I thought to myself that it’s just having lunch with the same friends as usual. I put on my pair of blue jeans, a cashmere turtle neck and tennis shoes. I didn’t put on makeup and just tied my hair in a pony-tail. When I got there, everyone was dressed up nice. Compared to all of them, I looked like a bum! The guy they were trying to set me up with took one look at me and I’m not going to lie, he got up and left.
It was so embarrassing. From that day on, I always knew to dress for all occasions. Every single day, people tend to pass off judgment on others in a matter of three seconds or less. Everyone does it, even if he/she denies it. You see a person, take in their appearance, and make a decision about them. What you present through your clothing often says more about you than you will be able to say about yourself in words. People who look like you will often be drawn to you, and others will treat you accordingly just based on the clothes you wear.
If a person chooses to dress sloppy, this person is sending out a message, “I don’t care about my appearance,” to others out there. Compared to a person who is always dressed to impress everyday, he or she is sending out signs like, “I do care what people perceive me of what I wear. ” This person will get a better perception of what others will perceive when they take one look at them. So, before you go out of your house each day, ask yourself this question, “What do I want to tell the rest of the world about me? ”
We often read in the newspaper about a welfare family with a problem. Some of these articles identify the people on welfare with names that seem foreign, a single parent with numerous children, or a person with a disability. As I read these articles I remember comments made by some family members and friends about how we are "paying for these people' and they should "just get a job like everyone ...
