How to Create a Good First Impression

1. Introductions

Humans are built to size each other up quickly when they first meet. That is just an evolutionary, so control the way you speak by speaking with certainty.

Give a firm handshake that’s friendly and sincere while making eye contact. Do keep it short as most people will feel uneasy if a handshake lasts too long and is weak or too firm.

Collect your thoughts before you say the first few words so you can sound confident and sure about what you're saying. A shaky voice and a quiet tone won't get you far. Pause think it through and then speak no one going to get mad at you for thinking before speaking

2. Find common ground

Prepare ahead of time if you can learn about the person before meeting them. That will help reduce your anxiety and will show more authority. We tend to like people who are at least a little bit similar to us. As the old saying goes, birds of the same feather flock together.

Find a topic that you are both interested in or like to indulge in or tell them about ThisIndulge and help us spread the word about our mission to help young adults inspire, discover, and regain their life.

3. Treat others like you want to be treated

If you treat others like you want to be treated, you will leave a lasting impression on the other person while still being true to yourself.

So don’t treat anyone new any different treat them like you knew them for ages. Like you would treat your best friends or family members

4. Give them an ear

Be fully engaged; don’t face off to the side. Square up to the person, make eye contact, and give the other person your full attention. That will make them know that you are interested in the conversation and they're not in a forced conversation with you.

Attentive listening builds trust. Be sure to make a slight remark after every three to five sentences to show that you are listening. But do give them time to express themselves fully.

5. Smile

Don't have a resting bitch face have a little smile and make eye contact. Present yourself appropriately. Physical appearance does matter as it’s the first thing, anyone, notices about you. That is one of the most potent introductions in a first impression.

That doesn’t mean you have to look like a model but do dress for the occasion to create a secure and positive first impression. That will make you more memorable and noticeable to others. Maintain eye contact also shows your independence and confidence. Not being afraid to hold eye contact will make you look like a leader

6. Keep a positive attitude

We all know how hard it can be to keep a positive attitude. Your attitude will shine through everything you do.

So keep it positive even in the face of criticism or in the case of being anxious. But your actions will speak louder than words so project confidence, self-assurance, and be courteous.

7. Know your worth

As it’s your first encounter with the other person and they are forming quick opinions of you. Do be aware of how you are presenting yourself and don’t let the other person lower your self-worth.

So you don’t end up in any situation you don’t want to be or having to need to explain yourself for not wanting to do something.

8. Small Talk

Conversations are verbal give and take. Prepare some questions to ask the other person or ask the usual questions to get to know more about them. It will only take a few minutes, and you can learn if you have anything in common.

If so, this will be a great way to open the conversation and help keep the conversation flowing. Do say something that is out of the usual that they will be like WTF for example if you have a cool knife you can ask if him or her want to see your knife?

Don’t lose yourself or pretend to be someone your not. Being your authentic self will make a better impression if you pretend to be someone your not. You will come off as a fake person once the other person starts to learn more about you.

Our Advice

A positive attitude, being polite, courteous will help you make a great first impression even if you didn't follow all of the other steps above. In fact, not being courteous can ruin your chance at making a great first impression.

But you can always pull out the trump card and say, “sorry, I'm just super nervous can we start over from the top.” Do keep these thoughts in mind and be sure to share this with your friends and family members.
