First Impression.

First impression is the last impression.

How far do you agree to this?

As for my case, I don’t agree to it, absolutely not. If this were true then most probably every person I met would consider me to be- arrogant or shy or a fool or a person with a lot of attitude or better yet, all of the above.

  1. No its not last impression..but still first impression is always important because for rest of life you will judge anyone with respect to your first impression of them.
    Like after being in relation we oftenly say that when i saw you first i never thought you will beacome so much imp to me etc etc. 🙂🙂

  2. It’s not for me, I don’t judge anyone with its first impressions, he/she can be faking it. It always comes to ‘time tested’ one. May be a errand boy with a neat but ragged clothes turn out to be better and beautiful than the most expensive one. I don’t believe neither do I swing like that I generally avoid as far as I can to remain away from these things, just be what one is meant to be, rather than effervating like a blown up Balloon eventually gets.
    So yeah, hope you are having an amazing day.

    1. I agree, as for me, first impressions have never worked. I think that I might like someone and it turns out real bad, and sometimes I wonder if I can ever click with that person and in the end it proves to be a really beautiful relationship.

  3. I agree with your point…there have been people I thought I would be good friends with (based on first impression) and others I thought I didn’t really click with…but, given time, the opposite turned out to be true. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  4. Well I’d both agree and disagree. For romantic relationships, you usually know after a few seconds if there’s potential for chemistry or not (although rarely, it can change over time). For friendships, it sometimes takes a lot longer to really figure out whether this person will be someone you’ll want to spend time with.

  5. Might be that “first impression lasts” and not “first impression is the last impression”. There’s a huge difference between the two.
    I don’t agree with the latter too.

  6. I don’t know about last impression – but I can tell you that it takes 30 seconds for us to make our first judgement about a person and is very difficult to change it for quite a while!

  7. First impressions are always remembered i guess…true or not is another matter!! As for me, I don’t think it should be considered last as a person can really change and show the real him/her with the passage of time…or the person may act differently as per the environment..and he/she may be actually pretending something else which they are not! Some people open up later to turn out to be something exactly opposite of what they are…
    As for me, my first impression is always bad or a disaster!! I may be considered shy, haughty, timid, serious, bumbling fool or a stupid….. depending on the situation!! 😂…but it’s not correct!!

  9. Funny, I immediately thought of a friend of mine. My first impression of her was that she was such a stuck up snob!!! However, I couldn’t have been more wrong…she was just terribly shy and very insecure! Glad I didn’t “rule her out” right away as first impressions can be VERY misleading! 🙂 Great post Moushmi! (As always :))

    1. Thank you so much dear.
      You know what many of my friends say this to me. Had they on my first impression ruled me out then they’d really miss being with me.
      And yet the chances are still people will consider me as shy or arrogant on the first impression.

Your perception holds importance for me.
