...FIRST IMPRESSIONS AND THEIR POWER, How first impressions strike us and their power to change actions Jacob XXXXXX CSU-Global ABSTRACT ------------------------------------------------- This paper will look at first impressions, how they strike us, the powerful ways in which they change our behavior and affect our decisions. How first impressions strike us and their power to change actions First impressions strike us in many different ways. They are often a powerful inhibitor which change the ways in which we would interact with others around us. Often times they are not indicative of the person we are meeting, yet they can permanently alter the ways in which we view others and the ways in which we interact with others. They are however not always permanent impressions. Many times a first impression can be less than desirable for many reasons. Such reasons can range from a person feeling under the weather, a person having unrelated stressors affecting their behavior to an unplanned and inconvenient meeting of two people. When a first impression is less than desirable for the meete, the meetor can tend to make certain assumptions about the meete. These assumptions can range from believing that the meete is less than capable at a particular task/job to believing that the meete is perhaps an undereducated and unmotivated person. However, the same can be said in reciprocal. Take for example a person who has nothing more than a high school diploma and a slightly......

Impression Management

...continuously evolving through technology and we are expected to keep up with various trends. Phone companies are constantly updating models of the same product to entice buyers, news agencies are constantly trying to out-do each other for ratings on trending topics. The pressure to remain relevant is high and it’s no wonder it trickles down to our personal and professional lives. Making the right impression on people around us has never been more important than now. A popular example of the worst impression management mistake is the case of Justine Sacco, a former PR executive whose irreverent use of social media ruined her professional image in a matter of seconds. (Brian Stelter, CNN). What I find disappointing about Sacco is a consistent pattern of racial and offensive tweets that portray her as a disturbed personality. Not only did she reveal her lack of knowledge about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa, she prompted bigger debate on the stigmatization haunting the continent and making it harder to fight the disease. As a Public Relations expert from South Africa, it was rather ironic that Justine Sacco held such opinions. However, social media can be addictive if we let it get out of control. Despite the fact that Justine Sacco’s account was personal, it’s important to note that she was the face and voice of the organization she worked for. Her job was to decide how the company communicates its message to the world and she violated her authority. My perception of her......

Impression Management

...at least one example of the worst impression management mistake that you have seen made by another. Discuss how the mistake affected your perception of the person. The worst impression management mistake that I have seen was by a manager at my last job (bookstore). I worked for the company for almost 5 years and watched the way my manager played favorites and then denied it every time. It was on a daily occasion when I went into work that I would watch as my manager stood around with several of the male employees and one female employee talking sports. When I first started working there the female employee was a “lead” who delegated tasks to the associates and she was similar to my manager in the sense that they would have ‘favorites’ and would stand around talking and not being productive but as soon as they started walking around and saw two co-workers talking those employees would be yelled at and told to ‘get back to work’. I lost respect for the manager and lead because they created a halo effect atmosphere in the workplace; if any employee didn’t want to work hard all they had to do was talk sports, which was the attribute the manager and lead used to develop an overall impression of a person (Uhl-Bien, p. 58). This resulted in tasks not getting done is a timely manner, the floor looking messy and unorganized and several disciplinary meetings telling the staff to work harder and deny favoritism. What did you learn from the impression management mistake that you......

Lasting Impression Ed

...A time I left a lasting impression on a patients family is about a year ago. I had an older gentleman who was brought into the Emergency Department by ambulance for abdominal pain. Report also included that he was pale and had a low blood pressure and a very distended abdomen. Upon arrival to the ED, the patient was placed on the heart monitor, had multiple IV’s established, blood work drawn, medications verified, and multiple tests ordered. My assessment which was initially focused on the patient who’s blood pressure was low, was having a hard time staying awake, and much pain in his abdomen. The issue not only was to stabilize the patient, while figuring out what was causing the pain & distention in his abdomen, but also to try to get the patients pain under control without further lowering the patients blood pressure. The labs showed low blood counts, with the patient needing blood transfusions on top of the IV fluids and medications being used to raise his blood pressure. The imaging studies showed a twisted bowel, with a large area of potentially dead gut. With this, the patient in his stay then needed to be prepared for emergency surgery. While this was all going on, it was also keeping in mind that the patients spouse was in the room. She needed to be comforted to, listened to so she new she had a voice and was being heard. She also needed to know what exactly was going on with her husband and made to understand how serious his condition was. The...

First Impressions

...2012 First Impressions Everyone has been on or has known someone who has been on that first date where the advice is given about making a good first impression. First impressions are important especially in cases of job interviews, meeting family members of significant others, and romantic settings where you meet that special person for the first time. Sadly enough for most females, they base their romantic interactions on these first impressions which usual cause heartache. Women are usually more emotional invested in a relationship or romantic encounter than guys are. Therefore, guys whom are “players” develop their “game” around this to provide more of an assurance of them getting laid. It is compelling to make that first impression when meeting someone new. For players, they strive to create that image of “the good guy”. Upon that first meeting, impression formation is developed from the physical attributes and features as well as the beginning actions. Individuals are judged by that first impression on what part of society they belong to. When evaluating guys, the social groups that are examined are; the good guy, the dog/player, the needy/too attached, and the emotionally unavailable to name a few. The stereotypes of these groups comes into play therefore, impression management is part of the play book for players. The “ideal guy”, the good guy most females want and talk to their friends about, must be projected to leave that lasting good impression. ......

First Impression

...We never get a second chance to make a first impression Communication is the art of convincing others. A key to effective communication is to make a good first impression. Once we set a good first impression, they frequently stay with us for the life of the relationship. Unfortunately, bad fist impressions have a way of ending even the most profitable relationships before they begin. An initial impression-- whether it is good or bad-- is made within the first three seconds. The first few moments of any contact often affect our relationship with the individual for a lifetime. With our customers, the outcome of the first impression we make can affect our style of life for years to come. Everything we do and say—or fail to do and say—will ultimately affect the impression we make on the people we meet. The key variables that can make the first impression good are voice, appearance, cultural considerations, eye contact, body language, interests, smile, listener, and feel important. Voice can make or break us before we even meet our prospect face to face. If a salesperson speaks badly—mumbles, whines, talks too fast—it can turn people off. To overcome mumbling, we should take the time to enunciate our words. We should slow down, punctuate our speech using phrases& pauses to meet the people. A “vocal workout” using long, sustained sounds and vowel exercises will add power to our voice. Appearance: Are we clean or neat? Are our clothes not neat, but appropriate for the job at......

...Journal #5 By Maxim Borodaev My impressions about USA. Since January, when I came to USA, I`m trying to understand this country. This country not really difficult to discover, but I found a lot of interesting things and interesting people to discover. For whole 6 mouths here I`m trying to understand, how I suppose to live here. This is what about will be this journal or rather about my impressions. I think that for you it will be interesting. I mean “How I see this country”. First part of this journal will be about first time in USA. Of course first time for me was the most difficult. I missed, and still miss some people from my past life. I had a feeling like sheep in the circle of wolves. I came without anybody from my relatives, and without any help, and I supposed to survive here and socialize. I was always in my mind, I was closed to people. It was first problem. Second problem was language. Nobody understood me and didn`t want to understand. I wanted to go home. But it wasn`t about my relatives. I wanted to stay home, I mean my country. But with time I changed my mind and understood that right now I`m in different life and different country, and I have to live here for whole time I am in the university. After some time I started to communicate with people. Almost they were international students. Almost from Saudi Arabia. I met a lot of people, but they weren`t this people who I wanted to communicate. They were good with me, but I felt that they are not my......

Lasting Impressions Company

...Lasting Impressions Company Lasting Impressions Company (LI) is a medium-sized commercial printer of promotional advertising brochures, booklets, and other direct-mail pieces. The firm’s major clients are New York- and Chicago- based ad agencies. The typical job is characterized by high quality and production runs of over 50,000 units. LI has not been able to complete effectively with larger printers because of its existing older, inefficient presses. The firm is currently having problems cost effectively meeting run length requirements as well as meeting quality standards. The general manager has proposed the purchase of one of two large six-color presses designed for long, high-quality runs. The purchase of a new press would enable LI to reduce its cost of labor and therefore the price to the client, putting the firm in a more competitive position. The key financial characteristics of the old press and the two new presses are summarized in what follows. Old press – Originally purchased 3 years ago at an installed cost of $400,000, it is being depreciated under MACRS using a 5-year recovery period. The old press has a remaining economic life of 5 years. It can be sold today to net $420,000 before taxes; if it is retained, it can be sold to net $150,000 before taxes at the end of 5 years. Press A – This highly automated press can be purchased for $830,000 and will require $40,000 in installation costs. It will be depreciated under MACRS using a 5-year recovery period....

Impressions of the Chair

...There are various forms of communication. Of course, verbal communication is used without hesitation, but not often do people think of the various forms of non-verbal communication that is portrayed. Non-verbal communication is just as important as the verbal communication in any setting. In the reading “A Management Style that Made an Impression” (Hirsch, 2011, p. 71), the CEO, has the visitors’ chair bolted down. It has the writer puzzled, because he could not believe that the chair was bolted down. The chair being bolted down shows a level of control. The CEO had the chair bolted down, because it shows where his comfort level is with visitors. The visitor would not be able to enter his personal comfort zone. An interviewee can perceive this non-verbal gesture as intimidation. The individual would know there is control within the organization, and that the CEO values his personal zone. It also provides a safe distance to handle business within the office. The reason is cited within the text, “The man wanted nobody invading his space. He sat protected, barricaded behind his oversized desk” (Hirsch, 2011, p. 71). The desk is a barrier between the manager and the visitor. Communication alone is difficult, but when speaking with a manager that stays behind the desk, and creates another barrier, such as bolting down a chair, could easily make one uncomfortable. Also, managers who stay behind their desk indicate a symbol of power and exert the role of the individual. Desks......

Impression Managment

...Impression Management Impression management is a goal-directed conscious or unconscious process in which people attempt to influence the perceptions of others about a person, object, or event. Everyone uses impression management from time to time. * In what situation are you most likely to use impression management? What situation are you most likely not going to work to use impression management? What is the typical difference between these two situations? I would most likely use impression management when seeking employment. It’s very important that the employer receives the impression that you’re a great fit for the company. I wouldn’t use impression management at a family reunion or an event where there’s family and friends who knows me well. The difference in the two situations is that one is with relatives and the other one isn’t. * Provide an example of when you used impression management successfully. What was the outcome and why? Everyone knows that employment is very important and it’s important to impress the hiring managers. I read the entire job duties associated with the position and knew exactly what to say and how to say it. I was able to impress them enough to get the Out of 20 people who were interviewed I was the one who received the job. * Now provide an example in which you attempted to use impression management and it failed.
