How others view a person can influence how that person views his or her environment and those in his or her environment. People are constantly making first impressions in social, personal and professional situations What is a situation where you think it is especially important to make a positive first impression? How do you try to ensure you make a favorable first impression? How can what you do to make a positive impression differ from situation to situation? For example, what would you do differently, if anything, to make a positive first impression in a job interview than you would on a first date?

    What is a situation where you think it is especially important to make a positive first impression? I think when you go for a job interview the first impression you make on the interviewer is key to getting the job. How do you try to ensure you make a favorable first impression? Obiviously you want to dress approriatly if you are trying to make a first impression. How can what you do to make a positive impression differ from situation to situation? For example, what would you do differently, if anything, to make a positive first impression in a job interview than you would on a first date? In a job interview you want to dress more conservitively, then you would on a date, in my opinion a date and job interview are totally different, a date you have already gotten to know the person. The person who is interviewing you just met you. So these two instances would be totally different

    In any potentially continuing relationship, it is important to make a good first impression, which tends to bias the others' attitudes toward you in the future. Would that mean that the first impression is most important with those whom you want to have the greatest future contact?

    The first statement is related to the concept called the "looking-glass self."
